FunPlanet Rennaz

First of all, a must-see destination to enchant young and old alike is FunPlanet Rennaz. This multi-activity center, located in the canton of Vaud, is listed on as one of the best leisure parks in Switzerland. They offer a multitude of fun activities to enjoy with friends. Between bowling, virtual reality and themed karaoke rooms, you'll have an incredible time with friends, colleagues and family, with a quality refreshment break in one of the two restaurants. What's more, the center is brand new!

FunPlanet Kids Rennaz

For those with younger children, aged 3 to 12, the perfect alternative is FunPlanet Kids Rennaz, a unique amusement park for children and families in Switzerland, with 4,500m2 and dozens of indoor activities at the cutting edge of innovation, to do together with the kids, for climbing (16 climbing walls for kids), jumping, exploring caves (caving for kids optional), digital experiences, rides, an inflatable course and mini-golf for kids and parents. There's even an activity corner for toddlers under 2. In short, the destination in Switzerland for families with young children, less than an hour from Lausanne, at the gateway to the Valais, especially since the closure of the Fun4kids indoor playground in the Valais.


The next stop is Happyland, an amusement park with a wide range of attractions. For roller-coaster fans, this amusement park with open-air facilities is closed from November to March, but offers thrilling rides. The park is located between the Valais towns of Sion and Sierre, on the Berges du Rhône cycle route for family cyclists.

Water park:

And if you're looking for a refreshing alternative during the hot summer months, don't miss the Le Bouveret Aquaparc water park. It's the perfect place to cool off and have fun with the whole family. With water slides, wave pools and sandy beaches, this water park has it all.

Bains de la Gruyère

In the canton of Fribourg, at an altitude of 900 metres in Charmey, Les Bains de la Gruyère offers an exceptional view of the surrounding Gruyère mountains. Children aged 5 and over are welcome. Enjoy three large pools of mineral water heated to around 34°C, perfect for a family outing with young and old alike. You'll be swept away by the current on an aquatic journey featuring relaxing bubbling sofas, as well as numerous massage jets and nozzles to relax your body. The center includes two indoor and one outdoor pool, all maintained at 34°C, as well as a Nordic zone with three saunas and an Oriental area featuring a hammam and Turkish baths. There's also a relaxation room and panoramic terrace.

Beekeepers' seeds

Also in Fribourg, a family outing favorite, graines d'apiculteurs offers exciting year-round activities to discover the world of bees, suitable for children and adults alike. If you've always dreamed of learning more about bees and producing your own honey, look no further! There's a program of "Petits Parrains" workshops specially designed for children aged 5 to 13. Equipped with a cosmonaut suit, you'll have the chance to visit the beehives and learn the skills of the beekeeper. You can even extract your own honey and put it in jars to take home.

FunPlanet Bulle, Fribourg

Also in the canton of Fribourg, the Fun Planet Bulle amusement park is a popular destination for family outings, with bowling, laser tag and mini-golf. A huge site with many activities to do together, for children over 6 years old, with a bar and snack area for a break in the family day... There are even possibilities for organizing a child's birthday party, turnkey.

La Petite Lanterne

Finally, if you're looking for a recurring family activity all year round, we recommend La Petite Lanterne in the canton of Vaud. La Lanterne Magique, a children's cinema club, offers a unique cinema experience for children aged 4 to 6, accompanied by their parents. There's nothing more wonderful than sharing your child's first steps at the movies, watching them marvel, feel and think. La Petite Lanterne respects the sensitivities of the very young, helping them to tame the big screen with confidence. This approach is designed for children, but also for adults who want to accompany them in their discovery of images and sounds. This introduction to cinema comprises six sessions spread over two years, i.e. three per year. Each session focuses on a different theme, such as the music in films, the diversity of the film world, emotional expression and different cinematographic techniques.

In conclusion, among these excellent ideas for family outings in Switzerland, you're sure to find the one that suits you best. Don't forget to check the information and opening times of each park on or on the official websites of each park. Get ready for unforgettable family fun under the Swiss sky!
