This mini-farm is a real delight for the youngsters because besides enabling them to have a physical and olfactory contact with the animals, it also gives them the opportunity to feed the animals themselves and ask the guides a thousand and one questions about the lives of some of the animals that the younger children, for example, are not in the habit of seeing very often. Besides being able to observe at close quarters, without any fear of danger, animals such as pigs, geese, monkeys and so on, for the modest sum of 3F (EUR 0.45) your children will be able to feed them. The farm is situated in the ideal setting of the Parc de l'Orangerie and when you leave you will be able to spot here and there some of the animals observed earlier during your visit, but this time in their natural surroundings! Enjoy your visit! Children (over 4 yrs) : 5F (EUR 0.76) Adults :10F (EUR 1.52). Call for open hours.
This little roundabout, situated in the enchanting setting of the Parc de l'Orangerie is a real pleasure to look at and it's name is well suited! It is made up of "antique" cars, all linked up to one another, that travel round a decor worthy of "Snow White", letting the child believe - although depending on his age he may no longer be taken in- that it is he who is driving! This roundabout is a permanent fixture but only functions when the good weather arrives. Admission: 6F (EUR 0.91) a ride, possibility of reduction for a set number of tickets.
A Skate-Board track is to be found on the perimeter of the Parc de l'Orangerie for everyone's pleasure and particularly those who practise the sport. It consists of bumps and dips that have been covered in tarmac and is a real pleasure to perform on! If you're a roller-skater or a mountain biking fan, go and take a look too because the track will be an ideal place for you. It is also very well adapted for acrobatics and is well maintained. And all this in very pleasant surroundings. Admission free.

This little shop on the corner of the street offers a wide choice of books on childhood and books for children, such as the traditional fairy stories that we all grew up with, but that's not all! You will also find books on Alsace and its legends that will both surprise parents and fascinate children. The prices are not out-of-bounds, quite the contrary, and even if you don't intend buying, come and take a look at the shop all the same, if only to admire the section of books for children on Alsace.
The blue and gold of the Racing Club de Strasbourg football club play their home matches at the 31,000-seat La Meinau stadium. French first-division champions in 1979 (and runners-up in 1935), twice second-division champions, two-time French Cup winners and 1997 League Cup champions, Strasbourg have recently fallen on harder times, narrowly escaping relegation to the second division more than once in recent years. Things are looking up in the new millennium, though, as a bevy of young talent coalesces around veterans like Teddy Bertin. For the spectator, a top-notch football experience is guaranteed.
