Amsterdam- 5 days with kids and grandparents

Jump to last reply

I'm working on an itinerary for a 5night trip to Amsterdam. Would like to see a lot of sights and culture but do not want to overwhelm the kids either (ages 8, 10, 10).

Would like feedback on the plans so far:


Arrive in the late afternoon, Hotel Estherea, on Tuesday. Walk around the hotel local area and have a nice dinner. Any recommendations?

Wed: hop on/off bus- plan on buying a 2 day ticket. Doing a canal cruise, Vondelpark. What other sites would you add?

Thur: Walk around Nine Street, Anne Frank house books for early afternoon, climb the Westerkerk. Other things to add?

Fri: Day trip with guided bus tour to Alkmaar, Cheese Market and Windmills (10a-3p) OR Windmills and Edam (10a-2p). Museum in afternoon, Rijksmuseum or Houseboat museum

Sat: Historic city bike tour (10a-1p or 2p-5p) , Van Gogh museum, NEMO museum

Sun: leave Amsterdam
