There are plenty of beautiful European cities to choose from, but when you’re travelling with children, the choice is much harder. Here are some European kid-friendly cities that will be perfect for your family!

London

Not only did London make the list as a world city, it’s actually one of the best kid-friendly cities in Europe! Among the family-friendly activities, a visit to the Harry Potter Film Studio stands out. Located 35km from London, the studio is where the Harry Potter films were made and a large entertainment centre has been built on top of it. Everything related to the film can be seen here. Little ones love Lego. For them, Legoland is a must! The amusement park has lots of large Lego figures. Although it’s not directly in London, the nearly one-hour bus ride is well worth it! There are plenty of free museums in London. The Natural History Museum is a great one for kids. They’ll be especially fascinated by the huge 105-metre-long dinosaur skeleton! But there’s plenty of other good stuff too: the Aquarium, Diana Memorial Playground, the London Eye, and for the older ones, the infamous London Dungeon.

Paris

What else is the French city famous for but the biggest theme park for kids, Disneyland! Disneyland is divided into two parts, so that younger and older children can find the right entertainment for them all in one place. You can see many of the characters from Disney fairytales and have your photo taken with your favourite characters! But this park is not just for kids! The Parc Asterix theme park is based on the famous comic strip, with several attractions especially for older children. I would also recommend a museum. The City of Arts and Sciences is a great place for all ages, with a wide range of themes to explore interactively.
If you still want to play, the Jardin d’Acclimatation amusement park has nearly 50 attractions. They will also enjoy the Eiffel Tower. The view from the huge structure is sure to impress everyone!

Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the best cities for children with lots of exciting things to do and see. The CosmoCaixa, the Palace of Wonders, offers an interactive approach to many topics, such as the ecosystem of the Amazon rainforest, the evolution of the Earth’s geological diversity and the development of evolution. Gaudí’s city has many unique buildings. Young people will also love the Güell Park! The park is a little “fairytale world” with a wonderful view of the city. Ever been in a labyrinth made of hedges? If not, you can try it at Parc del Laberint d’Horta!
But there’s also an aquarium, an amusement park and a zoo!

Amsterdam

Many people think of the Dutch capital as ‘grown-up’, but kids will have a great time too! The best kid-friendly programme is the NEMO Science Museum. The boat-shaped museum makes science exciting with interactive exhibitions and spectacular experiments. The Dutch Maritime Museum presents the period of the great maritime powers. What the kids will love is the old ship moored outside the museum. The ship’s crew, dressed in period costume, depict the life of the sailors. The city is full of canals, part of Amsterdam’s public transport system. Take a trip on the water at least once, the kids are sure to enjoy it. If you want to visit a park with kids, Amstelpark is a winner. The tidy park has a playground with lots of toys and a ride on a miniature train.
