Day trips in Holland with kids

If you stay in greater Rotterdam with your family for a couple of days, a day trip to one of the attractions in the vicinity of Rotterdam is great fun for your kids. For most of these attractions you need a full day including travel. The attractions listed below are located within 30 to 60 minutes driving time from Rotterdam.


Theme parks in Holland for kids

Theme park Duinrell in The Hague offers fun attractions for families with kids until about the age of 12, including the ‘Tikibad’ swimming pool with many fast water slides. Theme park Efteling is one of Europe’s leading theme parks and the best family theme park in the Netherlands by far, comparable to Disneyland Paris! Every season a brand new roller coaster or attraction is launched at Efteling. If you and your kids like to take it easy and want to learn all about the Netherlands in a bird eye’s view, do visit the miniature city of Madurodam near The Hague.


Beaches near Rotterdam

Rotterdam Beach (called Hoek van Holland) has got a couple of great beach clubs and is increasingly popular among locals. Hoek van Holland is easily accessible by train and there's also free parking available! Scheveningen beach is located near The Hague and is much busier compared to Hoek van Holland. Scheveningen offers lots of beach clubs, shops, a large sandy beach and a very nice and brand new beach promenade.


Discover the Delta Works with kids

The impressive Delta Works protect the south of the Netherlands against flooding and it's a fun and educational attraction for kids as well. At theme park Neeltje Jans, you can join a boat tour, see some seals and your kids have a great time at the water playground. You don't want to drive that far? You don't have to leave Rotterdam for a fun day out with your kids: Rotterdam offers some fun museums and attractions for kids as well!
