You’ve likely already begun to plan your summer vacation, and we hope that your ideas are coming together nicely. Today Gaab Travel International would like to add a few more suggestions to your list. If you’re planning a vacation for your entire family, including younger children, you’ll want to be sure to keep the vacation interesting for them as well, and we’d like to suggest a few amazing family friendly European vacation destinations for the entire family to enjoy. 

Amsterdam may not be the first place that comes to your mind when thinking ‘family friendly’, but actually there is quite a lot to do there that your children will absolutely enjoy. You and your family can explore the many parks, bridges, and amazing architectural designs of the city by bike or by boat. Imagine how fun it would be to peddle or paddle around the city in exploration with your family. For entertainment, you have the Van Gogh museum, which has interactive and entertaining exhibits for all ages. You can also check out the Science museum. If you have older children, you’ll also want to be sure to go to the Anne Frank museum, which they should find educational, to say the least. From quaint B&B’s to more luxurious hotels, you won’t have any trouble finding a wonderful place to stay on any budget. 

Edinburgh might just be a dream come true for a child who loves castles, and green, hilly countryside. You can take tours of many of the old, historical pieces of architecture if you think your children would find that interesting. There are also several great kid focused locations in the area. You should consider both Dynamic Earth and The Museum of Childhood. Dynamic Earth has great, interactive presentations and videos for children, while the Museum of Childhood is four floors of fun, educational, games and interactive play for your kids. Taking them to locations like these might be a great bargaining chip if you’d like to take some time in the Museum of Scotland, which admittedly won’t be as entertaining for the young ones. 

Barcelona can be an excellent option for your family! Not only will you get to enjoy Spanish cuisine at its finest, you’ll also get to explore the old and glorious city with the ones you love. A definite recommendation for the young ones, is Parc Guell, where you’ll find several architectural designs by Gaudi. Its sculptures are colorful and fun, and your kids might very well feel as if they’re in a children’s book. Whether you’d like to hitch a ride to the beach or to an old castle on the hillside, be sure to take a cable car to check it out. Both destinations are kid friendly, and the cable car is always a treat. 

Now that you have a few great ideas of family friendly vacation destinations in Europe, you’ll have to evaluate which one works best for yours.
