I have not really travelled much, I have only been to France twice, Malta and Majorca. So when I was offered an article of some great holiday ideas I thought why not. Now just to save up and go! Are these the places you would recommend or do you have other ideas?


Europe is a beautiful continent, with so many amazing destinations to explore. With loads of history, amazing cuisines, and world-famous tourist attractions, any European city has something for every explorer. Plus, with such a huge range to visit, there is something to suit everyone, from solo travellers to growing families. So, if you are planning your next European family holiday, here are my top cities to visit.


Although famous for its red-light district, Amsterdam has so much more and is an incredible place for families. As a flat city, it is perfect for exploring on bike, so if you choose Amsterdam, make sure you hire some to enjoy peaceful family days out. But more than this, you can explore the city via canal, visit huge city parks like Vondelpark, take a trip to Natura Artis Magistra (Amsterdam’s zoo), or the Efteling theme park which is mythically themed featuring fairy tales and legends. There are also a massive selection of museums and galleries, including the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank Museum and Madame Tussauds.


If your family love food and history, then Rome is bound to be a hit. You can follow in the footsteps of gladiators at the Colosseum, make a wish at the Trevi Fountain, enjoy the greenery and have a picnic at the Villa Borghese park. For older or more adventurous families, there is also the underground catacombs, or you could hire bikes and explore the Appian Way. Whether you stay in the city, or just outside in a Eurocamp holiday parc, make sure you choose self-catering accommodation, as you will want to try the pizzerias and taste delicious gelato you find along the way.


When thinking about European family getaways, Germany is not always top of the list. This is a shame because it is a stunning country with lots to offer. Take Munich, where you will find so many family-friendly attractions. This includes a toy museum, Hellabrunn Zoo, and Bavaria Filmstadt – these are the biggest movie studios in Europe and families can try green screen. There is also Neuschwanstein Castle, which was the inspiration for Disney’s fairy-tale castle in Sleeping Beauty. Plus, the whole family can enjoy trying traditional German foods, like pretzels, apfelstrudel, and flammkuchen.

Although Europe is popular with backpackers, solo travellers and couples, it offers so much for a family holiday. Consider one of these European cities for your next family adventure. Or, if none of these strike your fancy, you could also visit Stockholm, Prague, or Reykjavik – the possibilities are endless.

    We have been to Geneva, Ljubliana and absolutely loved them both! Also Bruges, Brussels and Munich! Loved Bruges and Munich but Brussels was a bit too busy for me! Oh, musn’t forget Budapest, a city of two halves with Pest being a typical European city and Buda across the bridge being a quieter, more countrified area, perfect for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city!
