Despite its ‘adult’ reputation, Amsterdam is a very child friendly city. Every neighbourhood has its own “speeltuin’ or playground, many museums have a special programme for kids and the Dutch bring their kids everywhere, so a lot of restaurants and cafes are child friendly. So beyond the usual suspects like the Zoo and a canal cruise, what does Amsterdam have to offer for kids? Here are some fun activities for kids for every type of weather.
Explore NEMO: The science museum is an interactive adventure for children. They are encouraged to smell, hear, feel and see how the world works. A fantastic option for a rainy day, though it is best outside Dutch school holidays.
Eat Pancakes: Eating giant pancakes for lunch or dinner, how much better can it get? Take your kids to one of Amsterdam’s many pancake houses, find the best pancakes here
