The Swedish Institute is already well known to parents for its friendly terrace and café where you can have lunch or a snack and have enough room for strollers and little fidgets. They can now enjoy Place des Enfants – a new space for children aged 0 to 10, open until 10 June.

Place des enfants is alltogether a creative studio, a library, a venue for exhibitions and concerts, but above all a space where parents and children will find many activities to do together. Moderators are there to guide you or to help the children, but beware, this is not a a “drop your baby and run” kind of place, you are expected to play together! Workshops are programmed on Wednesdays and on weekends (detailed schedules below).

Just a stone’s throw from the last treasure hunt in the Marais, this is the ideal landing point at the end of the course! It might be hard to choose between a snack in the café with its mouthwatering kannellboller, and a reading session in the small hut of the Place des Enfants… But the only risk you run is to spend a pleasant afternoon there!
