Vondelpark is a great park to have picnics. There are a lot of great trees for the kids to play in. In the summer you can enjoy one of the many open-air concerts that the park has to offer. The park also has lots of playgrounds with a cafe so you can enjoy a relaxing drink and bites while your kids play.
This zoo may not be the worlds largest, but it very pretty and surrounded by a multitude of plants and trees. There is a Butterfly Pavilion, an aquarium, and even a planetarium. It is next to the Micropia so you can combine both in one afternoon.
This is the actual house where Anne Frank and her family hid during World War II. This is the place where Anne wrote her famous diary. The complex subject matter may not be appropriate for young kids but most kids that are above 10 years old will be deeply moved.
One of the best interactive science museums, kids don mini lab coats and safety goggles before they get to work on experiments. Teens have their own exhibit that delves into puberty and its effects on the brain. Definitely worth the visit!
Curious to know how Amsterdam got to be the way it is? Dive into this city’s complex history where teens can learn how and why it enacted some of the most liberal drug laws in the world. Younger kids will enjoy playing in the Little Orphanage, simulating life in a 17th-century orphanage.
This is one of Europe’s biggest outdoor markets. Each Tuesday-Saturday, hundreds of stalls sell everything from fresh produce to used clothing. When hunger strikes, this is a good place to try regional specialities like raw herring, broodjes (Dutch sandwiches) or a warm waffle.
