Lisbon with Kids

The Lumiares - Anchor link

Lisbon is a fantastic city for families, with plenty to do and see for people of all ages. Not sure where to start? We’ve pulled together some of our favourites that you – and your kids – are sure to enjoy.

Hop on Tram 28. This legendary little yellow tram clatters through Lisbon’s coolest neighbourhoods including Alfama and its castle on the hill – the Castelo de São Jorge.

Check out the Oceanarium (Oceanario). Over in Parque das Nações, you can find the largest indoor aquarium in Europe. It’s housed in an iconic building that looks like its floating on the water. Includes a massive two-storey central tank that has over 100 species including sharks.

Go to Lisbon Zoo (Jardim Zoológico). One of the oldest zoos in Europe, the Jardim Zoológico has reinvented itself in recent years as an impressive centre for animal and habitat conservation.

Play at the Science Museum (Pavilho do Conhecimento). Perfect – specially on a rainy day – this museum is packed with interactive exhibits for kids, and most adults can’t resist getting stuck in too.

Visit the neighbourhood’s parks and playgrounds. Jardim da Estrela, complete with several kiosks and a playground for both big and little kids. Or Jardim de Príncipe Real, also with a small playground, restaurant and coffee kiosk.



As Portugal slowly reopens to the world, we are thrilled to let you know that our hotel will reopen on the 20th of July.

The safety of our guests, neighbours and teams remains our top priority. With that in mind, stringent new health and safety measures have been implemented. In order to guarantee a 360º contactless experience, we are introducing online pre-registrations, digital room keys, contactless payments and much more.

If you would like to book a stay between July 1st and July 20th, you are welcome at our sister hotel – The Vintage Hotel & Spa – a short walk away from our hotel and close to Lisbon’s best parks and viewpoints.

If you are arriving in Lisbon before October 1st 2020 and booked directly with us, let us know and we’ll take care of your Lisbon airport transfer pick-up or provide you with complimentary hotel parking.

Until then, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
