Ah, family holidays! No matter what our age, we all count the days (or sleeps) until we go on holiday. But even though you should be in high spirits at the start of your long-awaited break, it's often better to plan your day trips in advance so that the young and not-so-young ones will each find something they enjoy. So if you're headed to Toulouse for your relaxing break, your trip will bounce from one discovery to the next, each one more rewarding than the last: Heritage, history, science, youth literature, botany and puzzles will all feature in your trip to the 'pink city'. 

    Here are 10 activities for enjoying Toulouse as a family.

    Puzzles and challenges across the pink city allow you to experience themed and unusual trips around Toulouse in a friendly, hands-on atmosphere. There are no guides here as such, but storytellers with a passion for culture, who, above all, want to offer you a pleasant time while enriching your knowledge of the pink city. The concept is constantly being reinvented, depending on the festivities that take place during the year: Toulouse's famous women are honoured on 8 March, and love takes centre stage for a Valentine's Day special. These are just a few examples, as this concept brings to you a perpetual rediscovery of the city of violets.

    La Halle de la Machine and the Minotaur lead young and old alike into an absolutely fantastic world. Whether they weigh a few grams or several tons, machines such as a wine-serving machine, a tilting nightingale and a bread catapult each tell their own story and impress with their movement as well as having an impact that makes them absolutely unique. The impressive Minotaur can sometimes be seen wandering around the Montraudan neighbourhood with 50 people on board. Arachnophobes shudder when they meet the moving eyes of the giant spider; only the most reckless dare to climb onto its head to slip into the skin of its operators. As enchanting as you can imagine, the Manège Carré Sénart has the power to bring all generations together for a fabulous imaginary journey. Visit, travel or workshop with the family. Whatever the desired activity, booking is strongly recommended.

    Lokasi: 3 avenue de l’Aérodrome, 31400 Toulouse, France
