Amsterdam with kids (5 - 12) next week

Jump to last reply

We lived outside of Amsterdam for years but have not lived there for 8 years and are meeting friends from home there on Friday just for the day.

We all have good traveling kids but a day is surely not much at all in terms of time.

I know the Gay Pride Canal Parade is that day so expect the city will be crazy with crowds.

That said, wanted to do a few highlights .... here are my ideas below and I am looking for editorial comments and suggestions please. Our family will stay for the next two weeks so I thought we could hit the highlights with them and then other goodies on our own.

Amsterdam Historical Museum? Haven't been in a long time and never with kids.
Anne Frank
Begijnhof
I understand Van Gogh and Stedelijk are closed but some of Van Gogh is elsewhere. Any thoughts on that?
Canal Boat cruise (I've actually never done one other than our engagement party where friends hired a canal boat and threw us a party on it - but that's another story!)
Maoz falafels .. my fave
Bagels & Beans
Albert Cuyp or another market. Love ideas here.
Vondel Park? Our friends don't bike unfortunately ...

This is WAY too much for just a day ... any suggestions on what would be GREAT?

Cheers and Dank Je Wel

Tracy
