Family-Friendly Things To Do in Amsterdam

Despite Amsterdam’s reputation for cannabis smoking in the coffee shops and its notorious red-light district, it’s an ideal city to visit with young children in The Netherlands. It’s small and walkable, with most sights within easy reach of each other. Its architecture and canals are eccentric enough to beguile kids, and it has plenty of cafés for pancake breaks from sightseeing. Buy an I Amsterdam card from the tourist office for reduced admission charges.

Book online to avoid the ever-present lines at the tragic Anne Frank House, with its hidden apartment and claustrophobic proportions, which always intrigue and horrify youngsters in equal measure. Combine it with a trip to the Children’s Museum at the Jewish Historical Museum, where kids can bake kosher bread, paint, and dance.
