3 Child-friendly city trips in the Netherlands

Making a city trip together with the whole family can be a grand experience. But finding the right activities for all to enjoy can be quite a challenge. We’ve highlighted three cities with plenty to do for all ages!

Plenty of unforgettable experiences are waiting just around the corner for the whole family. Spend some quality time together in a different setting and discover something new. But finding the right balance for everyone can however be challenging, so we’ve highlighted three child-friendly cities with more than enough fun for all ages!
1. Travel through time in Eindhoven
Eindhoven is situated in the south of the Netherlands. With a city centre comfortably compact in size, it’s perfect for a flash visit over the weekend. But there’s also an array of places to see and experience outside the city. Visit the Eindhoven Museum with the family and take a trip back in time to prehistory when Eindhoven was still a mere village. The open-air museum brings history to life where fun and interactive workshops teach you what life was like over 2,500 years ago. Take the kids on an educational and playful tour to learn about how it all began. A day filled with archery, ancient crafts, canoeing… and it’s over before you know it!
2. Amusement and culture for kids in Breda
The medieval history is beautifully apparent in the city centre of Breda. Narrow streets wind alongside a large church and old houses, all waiting to be admired. Make your way to MOTI, the Museum of the Image for a more modern feel where you can fully immerse yourself in the wonderful world of visual culture. Graphic design, photography and motion picture are displayed in a unique and accessible way especially for kids. Breda also has its very own puppet theatre known as MUZIPO. Their shows and entertainment accommodate all ages, from toddlers to teenagers and even amusement for adults. MUZIPO is perfect for an engaging and fun-filled day with the whole family!
3. Seaside and politics in The Hague
The Hague is a very family-orientated city with an ideal location close to the sea. Reach the beach in no time for a breath of fresh air and playful quality time with the kids. Visit Scheveningen Pier and gaze over stunning views from the Ferris wheel. But The Hague is much more than a beach, it's the country's political capital! Politicians and political parties fill the Binnenhof daily to discuss the future course of the Netherlands. What makes it great for kids are the special tours available for kids. This gives them a unique opportunity to not only appreciate the beautiful architecture of the Binnenhof but to also get a glimpse into how the country is run!
