5 Things To Do In Holland With Kids

When we visited back in October we had a long list of places we could visit in Holland with kids. While on holiday every day the list got longer as we found new places to visit. There is just so much to see and do in Holland, that you definitely wont get bored on holiday! We are not the type of family who go away on holiday and stay in the campsite or on the beach all day every day. In our opinion, if you are travelling that far, then you have to go and explore and see what the destination has to offer.

Our Top 5 Things To Do In Holland With Kids

Holland with Kids

Rotterdam Zoo

The best Zoo we have ever visited, so make sure you go. It is one of the best zoos as each section and enclosure has been well thought out. The enclosures are designed to be as close as their natural environment as possible and much larger enclosures than other zoos we have visited. Lots of interactive sections to keep your little ones entertained.

Kinderdijk Windmills

Kinderdijk Windmills

Think of Holland and you will more than likely think of Windmills. Kinderdijk is a must see place to visit if you want to learn about the history of windmills in the region. It is also great to explore, where your kids and climb up to the top of a windmill and learn more about how families lived back in the day. Kinderdijk Windmills will also give you a great iconic photo opportunity that you should not miss!

Get on a bike!

You can’t go to Holland and not explore the cycle paths! The cycle network is amazing and very child friendly. Whether it be a small cycle to the beach or cycling further you have to experience the cycling in Holland. It is nothing like the UK!

Madurodam Miniature Village


Madurodam Miniature Village is great for exploring. Just don’t go if the weather is meant to be bad as it is all outdoors. We only spent a few hours here as we had to cycle back but there were a lot more things for us to see and do.


Okay we never visited Amsterdam on our visit to Holland. However, it is still on our top 5 list of things to do, as we would go next time we visited with our boys. It looks a great place to explore and there looks like many great options to keep the kids entertained. I think our boys would love NEMO the science museum.

We will be hopefully going back to Holland again to explore with our boys. Amsterdam will be top of our list and we will explore more on our bikes.

Have you been to Holland? What is your top thing to do with your kids?

  1. Great list. I’ve visited Amsterdam a few times now, including this year with my little boy but have never ventured outside the city. I’d love to return and spend a bit longer exploring the rest of the region including the Kinderdijk Windmills and the tulip fields in Spring! Polly

    1. Thank you for commenting. Yes you should go back and explore. There is so much more to see and do 🙂 My favourite place was the Kinderdijk Windmills. Think I will be going on about them for a long time! Would love to see the tulip fields if we go back x

  2. You are the second person I have heard saying that Rotterdam Zoo is the best view they have ever visited. We will definitely go next time we go to Holland – my boys love a good zoo.

    1. Oh yes if you go back try get to Rotterdam Zoo. Your boys will love it. Such a good zoo and we didn’t even get to see it all! Thank you for commenting x
