Children's event on Wednesday 21st February

During the school holiday we had a special House of Joy for children and their parents. There were all kinds of activities:

  • painting birdhouses
  • making small pizzas
  • decorating egg cakes
  • making airplanes
  • and other creative options.

In addition, we also had table football games, a shuffleboard and the nursery with lots of toys for the youngest children.

The parents and other guests also had a great time. We were open from 2 am for the occasion.
