Kids and Family in Amsterdam


Efteling theme park - things to do with kids in AmsterdamExpat families will be pleased to know that there is more for kids to see and do in Amsterdam than meets the eye.

Outdoor activities abound and this bicycle-friendly city is a great place for families to get out and stretch their legs.

Residents regularly take the kids rollerblading in Vondelpark, pack a picnic and head to one of the city's fabulous parks, and stroll along the canal walkways.

Older children will love attractions such as the Anne Frank House, while families with children needing a little more excitement should set a weekend aside and head for the Efteling theme park's abundant rides and activities. Animal-loving expats will enjoy a trip to Artis Royal Zoo.  

A great way for children to come to grips with their new home is a trip to Madurodam, which features miniature Dutch-styled buildings, factories and streets. Moms with smaller children will do well to take their toddlers to TunFun Speelpark, an indoor playground in the heart of the city where kids can run around and let off some steam.
