6 Ideas for a Constructive Weekend in Delhi

In the busy city life, we may need more time to rejuvenate our senses and gain a new perspective. For all the workaholics who work Monday through Friday, the mere mention of the word weekend sounds like therapy.

Delhi’s proximity to several hill stations makes it the perfect place to spend a short vacation. However, not all weekends are meant for this. Fortunately, there are plenty of options in the city to indulge in new experiences. Take a break from your busy schedules to do something enjoyable and relaxing. Don’t limit yourself to wasting time sitting on the couch. Wear casual clothes and sneakers, and head out to explore the city and revisit your inner child.

Revisiting the city’s heritage

Heritage walks in Delhi are a great way to learn about the city and its history. Many groups and organizations in the city offer guided tours, each offering unique local experiences. Here is a list of the best walking tours in Delhi. Heritage promotion groups such as INTACH, Delhi by Foot, Master Ji Ki Haveli and Delhi Karavan among others.

Bike tour

If biking is your thing, groups like Delhi by Bike, Delhi by Cycle and SpinMonkey run bike tours including Haveli Tour, Old Delhi Tour, Yamuna Tour, Shah Jahan Tour and many more.

Spend your day at an amusement park

The best way to spend an exciting weekend is to visit the city’s fantastic amusement parks, both indoors and outdoors. You can ride thrilling rides, slide down massive water slides, bounce around in indoor trampoline parks, play video games in arcades, or play laser tag with your friends and family.
This weekend you can have fun at Worlds Of Wonder, Appu Ghar, SkyJumper, Adventure Island, Timezone or Smaaash.

Try indoor ice skating

We understand creeping heat is a limitation. So we came up with a simple solution: indoor ice skating! Slide across the ice on ice skates, fall, laugh and just have fun like never before! You can try it with your friends at ISKATE by Roseate in Gurgaon or Snow World in Noida.

Attend a film screening in the city

No, we’re not talking about going to the cinema to see hit movies. Why not go to a film screening and watch some foreign language movies this weekend? On weekends, many cultural centers and film societies in Delhi hold film screenings of classics and new releases in French, Korean, Italian, Japanese and other languages. If you love watching movies, you must follow film festivals and screenings at institutes such as India Habitat Centre, Max Mueller Bhavan, Alliance Française de Delhi, and Italian Cultural Institute, among others.

Plan a luxury stay

If you cannot travel over the long weekend, we recommend that you plan a stay to recharge your batteries. There are plenty of luxurious, budget-friendly, and even quirky stay options available for the weekend if you want to spend some time relaxing on your own. To brighten up your weekend without traveling too far, check out beautiful properties like Neemrana Fort Palace, ITC Grand Bharat, Andaz Delhi, The Lalit Mangar, The Westin Sohna Resort & Spa, The Roseate New Delhi or Avanti Retreat.
