Food & drinks

We’ve purposely chosen not to provide catering inside the park itself. In so doing, LABIOMISTA wants to support neighbourhood initiatives and local merchants. Food and drinks are allowed in the park, but not inside the buildings (with the exception of the LabOvo park pavilion). Do bring your own lunch, but please prioritise sustainable packaging. You can also order a picknick basket – see below for details. Drinking water is available in the reception building: bring a reusable bottle or buy one in the shop.


Close to LABIOMISTA, there’s Nomadland, the meeting place par excellence. You can always come here for an enjoyable picnic.

From 18 July, come round every weekend (12 am – 8 pm) and Thursday afternoon to enjoy delicious food and drinks. People from the neighbourhood provide local dishes, prepared on site in the colourful gypsy wagons.  

Are you visiting LABIOMISTA with a group of more than 20 people? Would you like to have a group picnic or enjoy a small snack and a drink in cozy Nomadland? Contact us, and we’ll open the gypsy wagons for your group.
