Kids wagon

It might be difficult to motivate your toddlers for a walk, even when it’s only a small one. Our kids wagon might be an appropriate solution! We have one and, when it’s still available, you can use it! Also for those going to the biweekly market of Bütgenbach this practical wagon could facilitate the purchases. Let the wagon transport your huge and burdensome bags!

Kids love the kids wagon and when the walk goes over flat and concrete paths also adults love it. What about a ride from the Tourist Office to the playground, and afterwards eating an ice in one of the tearooms? It will be a fantastic day for your toddlers and children! Oh, and yes, Mum, Dad, Granny and Grandaddy, don’t hesitate to share with us your great picture mentioning #KidsOnTheMove #Bütgenbach !

Are you interested? Come to the Tourist Info Office and check out if the kids wagon is still available. If yes, then you are a lucky one, because you’ll be able to use it.

Practical info:

  • The kids wagon has no suspension and is therefore unsuitable for a walk around the lake of Bütgenbach.
  • 80 kg is the maximum allowed weight of the kids wagon.
  • The kids wagon needs maintenance (painting, new screws, cleaning pillows…) and therefore we ask you a contribution from 0,5 euro per hour.
  • The Tourist Office of Bütgenbach has only one wagon, it might happen that other guests are using it, when you check in at the Tourist Office of Bütgenbach.



You will find ample, free parking everywhere in the municipality.
Additional parking facilities are provided for large events.
Parking La Playa: On sunny summer days, a meadow is opened on the lake shore on the side of the village of Berg where you can park for a fee.


Public WC

  • outside at the Tourist Info office, this toilet has a changing table
