Amsterdam Travel Guide

Amsterdam Kids Attractions

Some say Amsterdam is more geared for adults and not quite appropriate for children, and they may be right, but behind the red lights and coffee shops lie an abundance of activities and attractions to enthrall younger visitors. Thankfully the Red Light District is relatively small, and parents won''t have much trouble steering their children clear of this area. Active families will enjoy taking a stroll along the canal walkways, admiring the flower-decked houseboats, or rollerblading in Vondel Park. Better still, since the city is so small, compact and cycle-friendly, hiring a bicycle and pedalling around round the quaint neighbourhoods and canals of Amsterdam is a highly rewarding activity. For a more relaxing day out, pack a picnic and head to one of the city''s fabulous parks. Plenty of other free attractions abound, but the more popular ones involve a bit of money, such as trips to the zoo, farms, museums and theme parks. When the rain comes, don''t fret. There are plenty of indoor activities for children to enjoy come rain or shine, such as indoor playgrounds and cooking schools. With so many exciting and action-packed kids attractions to enjoy, children will love Amsterdam just as much as adults.
