My 5 favorite places in the Netherlands to explore with kids

by Emiel Van Den Boomen

This post is part of a collaborative project by 19 family travel bloggers. Justin Mussler of the Great Family Escape blog came up with the brilliant idea of linking local expertise to global visibility. 19 traveling families have launched a blog post with their local Top 5 of places to explore with kids. On this blog you can read my own Top 5 for families that want to visit The Netherlands. There’s a big bonus as well. Below this post you will find links to all the other Top 5 lists! So without further ado, here is my Top 5:

1. De Haar Castle in Utrecht

Netherlands with kids

Knights and princesses, kings and queens, which child has not fantasized about living in a real medieval castle? De Haar Castle is situated in the center of the country and dates back to the 14th century. It has been completely restored some years ago and it offers daily tours. In weekends and during holidays there are special tours for kids guided by a baroness. You can also wander around the 135 acres of French-style and English castle gardens.

More travel stories – Utrecht area: Surreal Radio Kootwijk, Royal Family at Palace het Loo (Apeldoorn).

2. Amsterdam

A visit to the Netherlands would be nothing without a visit to Amsterdam. Kids will love the canal tours that provide a view of the city from a totally different angle: the water. They will be surprised by the vast number of living boats (of which some own gardens and terraces). There are even boats that act as shelters for stray cats and boats that have turned into bicycle storage platforms.

As I do believe in sharing personal stories, here’s a link to a post from the Wander Blogger about her visit to the Anne Frank House.

Amsterdam is one big open air museum. The historic buildings and narrow streets offer a peek into history (although some alleys might be crowded with tourists). For a relaxing view of history, please go to the Begijnhof, a small hidden square in typical old Dutch style, founded as a religious community back in 1150.

More travel stories – Amsterdam area: the world-famous Rijksmuseum, Snow in Amsterdam, Canals of Leiden.

 

3. Rotterdam, Madurodam and the beach

Rotterdam actually is the largest city of the Netherlands but lacks the historical buildings and atmosphere that you encounter in Amsterdam. The reason is tragic as Rotterdam was bombed heavily during World War II. Being completely destroyed however, it did ignite entrepreneurship and the strong will to reconstruct the city. And that sense of craftsmanship never disappeared. Today, Rotterdam is known as the city of modern architecture and building design. Next to that it owns the second largest harbor in the world (after Singapore) which is a great activity with your kids. You can book various boat trips that will take you into the heart of the harbor activity. For sure you will encounter some huge container ships!

Another nice activity is to go up the Euromast, a 185 meter high tower that offers beautiful views of Rotterdam and the harbor. The top part is exciting where you twirl around the tower up in the sky. Through glass floor parts you can actually look down (quite scary for some!).

Close to Rotterdam you must visit the miniature city of Madurodam. Madurodam is Holland in the smallest possible way. They have rebuild all the major and famous parts of the country, in miniature style. If you don’t want to spend time waiting in line for the ticket office, just order your ticket online by clicking here.

4. Hoge Veluwe

We now move away from the busy Western part of the Netherlands into the more rural areas. First stop is the Hoge Veluwe. This is the biggest national park in the country and great for a day trip. Next to the beautiful landscapes, the impressive Jachthuis estate and the famous art museum (including a large garden with outdoor art objects), you and your kids can borrow the well-known white bicycles to get around and have some fun. At each entrance of the park you can find hundreds of white bicycles. Just pick one for free and start biking! There are tours available in different lengths. At some point you will take a rest in one of the restaurants or visit the museum. Just park your bicycle but don’t be surprised if someone else took it when you return! You cannot lock the bicycles as they don’t have an owner. The great thing is that you just pick whatever white bicycle you can find to continue your trip. The park offers special kids activities in school holiday periods.

Go to VisitVeluwe.com to find more activities in the area! There is so much to do and explore in this region, too much to mention in this post only. On the homepage of VisitVeluw, click on ‘View Map’, pick a town or city and read about castles, historic towns, museums, sports activities, and more.

More travel stories – Hoge Veluwe area: Historic Open Air Museum Arnhem , Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn, and the surreal Radio Kootwijk building. Or visit this Dutch travelblog where you can read about the most beautiful winter hikes in The Veluwe area.

5. Giethoorn

How typical Dutch can you go? Next stop: Giethoorn . Giethoorn is an unique place, a small village crossed by canals. Not like in Amsterdam, but more in a typical rural style. You can rent so-called whisper boats (electric boats that hardly make any sound) and navigate whatever route you like. Don’t worry if you get lost in the networks of canals, there are many people out there to help you.
You will pass cows in meadows, beautiful farm houses, bars and restaurants and one big lake. Try to stay during the evening when most of the tourists have left the village. Have dinner on one of the terraces and enjoy the relaxing evening atmosphere. Curious how to get to Giethoorn? Check the extensive descriptions on transport via the official Giethoorn website.

Netherlands with kids: more tips!

I could have picked a dozen more great family trips in the Netherlands: the enchanting Efteling amusement park, the traditional Open Air Museum in Arnhem, the UNESCO protected Wadden islands in the North, the surreal Radio Kootwijk, the city of Leiden with the amazing Naturalis museum (Netherlands Centre for Biodiversity; check the picture below) and the close-by Noordwijk Space Expo (Europe’s first permanent space exhibition). Our country is not that big (I refrain from using the word small…) and many trips can be done within a day. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any specific questions about visiting The Netherlands. Another option is to visit this Dutch site offering guides to all major cities.

Nice post. These 5 places are awesome but my favorite is Utrecht. Most tourists love to visit these places again and again with their families. There is something in Netherlands which increases the yearly growth rate of worldwide tourists.

hello. I want to got to Holland with my kids (6 and 8), but also my parents who have mobility issues. So that is the tough part. We want to arrive by ferry from UK (so we have the mobility scooters with us). But I need to find a place to stay and then make day trips from there which will suit very active kids and very not mobile grandparents who do not want to be left in the hotel. HELP PLEASE! Any ideas? Is there a good cheap and nice place to stay that can be relaxing for all ages?

Reply
Emiel van den Boomen September 19, 2016 - 14:30

Hi Lourdes. First of all it’s great that you take your parents with you. I can imagine that this is not the most easy way of travel. I thought about your question but have some troubles finding a right spot for you. Not sure what kind of day trips you want to make. Maybe you can just stay in Rotterdam or nearby Delft. From there you can do trips. When you travel by train to the main cities, you can take you mobility scooters on the train. People will help you. What are the things you would like to discover?

Reply
Lourdes September 27, 2016 - 18:33

Hello Emiel. Thanks so much for your kind response! It got lost on my email so sorry for the delay!! I had found a nice house to stay with my parents near the Hague. Near to the beach, so I think we will end up doing that. Going in the ferry so we can take the wheelchairs and then staying in that house so we can always go to the beach even if the weather is not too nice at the end of May! And I found nice things to do in the Hague also….
Do you think is a good idea? Once again for your kind response and sorry for the delay!

Reply
Emiel van den Boomen September 27, 2016 - 19:59

I think it’s a great idea. City of Delft is nearby and the Hague has it’s fair share of museums (Mauritshuis). If you think the beach near The Hague is too busy, you can drive up north a bit to Noordwijk and Katwijk. Rotterdam can be reached easily by public transport (RET metro). But same goes for Amsterdam by train. Great spot you picked.

Dear Anne. Best to check all the websites for current prizes. You probably have to make choices. The castle and Madurodam will cost you around 14 – 15 euro for an adult. Kids have discount. In Giethoorn you can just rent a single boat or combine it with dinner or lunch ( which you can sometimes take with you).

Jacquelyn McVicker September 22, 2014 - 19:48

Great post! We plan on visiting the Netherlands next year and want to spend at least 2 weeks there. Any tips on a good, central location to stay? I want to rent an apt on airbnb and I realize the obvious answer is Amsterdam but what about Utrecht? I’m looking for a family friendly town with parks, coffee shops and markets in walking distance. Thanks!

Reply
Emiel van den Boomen September 23, 2014 - 21:57

Thank you so much Jacquelyn! Utrecht I feel is a very good choice. It’s quite a big but a really great place to stay. Train connections to Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam (or my hometown Deventer) are perfect. Visit-Utrecht [dot] com will give you more info about the city. Good luck and have fun next year! 🙂

Jacquelyn McVicker September 24, 2014 - 17:46

Thanks for the tip. I have family in Almere and Nunspeet. I was told by my cousin that the entire country is basically like driving from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe and back (I live in CA) so I figure I can take day trips to the many places I want to visit like Arnhem, Den Haag, etc. Would you recommend renting a car or is public transit faster/easier?

Reply
Emiel van den Boomen September 24, 2014 - 19:44

Haha, your cousin is right! If you travel to cities like Amsterdam, Den Haag or Arnhem I would advise to take the train. You can buy a public transport card for moving around the city. Even Nunspeet is easy to reach by train from Utrecht! If you plan to visit for example Giethoorn or other places outside of the cities you might better rent a car.

Where would you recommend a family stay, Emiel, to visit such places? I want to stay in Amsterdam, my husband wants more room so wants to go outside. Our  kids are 7 and 3 so probably would appreciate the extra space but I don’t know how much of a hassle it is to rent a car and drive in the Netherlands as a foreigner. And I wanted to soak  up the atmosphere of Amsterdam but having it on our door step. What do you recommend?! Best wishes!

Reply
Emiel van den Boomen March 30, 2012 - 15:01

Hello!
It is not such a hassle to rent a car and drive in the Netherlands, not at all. Train connections between the large cities are also very good. If you want to go to Giethoorn and/or the Veluwe, you definitely need a car though. 
Where to stay? Well, staying in Amsterdam is great but expensive. I would suggest to at least stay a couple of days in the centre of Amsterdam and after that move to another place like Delft, Deventer or even smaller.
Netherlands is a small country so every destination can easily be reached within a day.  Let me think about it a bit more and I will send you some suggestions by email soon.

Thank you Diya. They tried the white bike concept in big cities as well (Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam). That failed, as students all painted them and called them their own 🙂 But at the Hoge Veluwe it’s a famous and successful concept, indeed ready to be copied.

Reply
Bama January 11, 2012 - 14:58

It looked funny and incredible at the same time. I knew about the stadium when Euro 2000 was held in Belgium and The Netherlands. So, when I flew back to Jakarta, I was searching for any building in Amsterdam that I recognize from up in the air…and there it was, Amsterdam Arena with its unmistakable retractable roof.

Mark January 10, 2012 - 10:04

You are right about Amsterdam… it is one big open air museum. I love Amsterdam. The canals, old houses, museums, restaurants… I could go on. Combined with friendly, relaxed residents the city simply feels very comfortable. 
I was also struck by is the amazing bike culture in The Netherlands. As a cyclist, I find it inspiring. I realize Holland is flat and compact, but is there anything like it in the world? The “white bike” concept is so cool. 
Madurodam looks like a fun place to check out for both kids and fun-loving adults. The detail is amazing and the fact that it displays historical or famous places means it is more compelling to see.  Reading this post makes me realize, the next time I am in The Netherlands (which is soon), I need to get out into the Dutch country-side more.

I must add one more comment. Your photographs are beautiful and show off the country at its best. 

Reply
Emiel van den Boomen January 10, 2012 - 20:22

Thank you for that compliment about my photography Mark! I love Amsterdam as well. Although I don’t actually live their, I love every minute of it when I visit the city. The atmosphere is great, winter or summer.

Now, if only I could speak Dutch … it would have made it even better still.  Learning Dutch is very high on my “to do” list (I am the first person in my family to be born outside of Holland.  My family was from Rotterdam, though my mother was born in Amsterdam).

Amy, you are the first one of your family to be born outside of the Netherlands, wow. Don’t you have someone over there who can speak Dutch to you? I have to warn you, it’s one of the most difficult languages in the world (far more difficult than learning Japanese, and I speak from experience). Hope you make it back to Holland someday (home is where the heart is 🙂

Reply
Amy at Livin On The Road January 11, 2012 - 03:53

My family chose to stop speaking Dutch when they came to Australia, and even requests to speak it to the kids fell on deaf ears.  I found that French was a much harder language to learn than Dutch – or at least, I seemed to pick up a bit of Dutch quicker than French.

I will definitely get back there some day, it is such a beautiful, friendly country.
