Kids go free, so what to do with the savings?
We have come up with some ideas:
Go on a canal cruise of Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s canals make up a huge part of its charm, and this year they celebrate their 400th anniversary. When your kids go free, your savings will cover a canal cruise that allows you to observe the citys gracious 17th century gabled merchants’ houses, the numorus baroque churches, and the enchanting bridges from Amsterdam’s most beautiful canal belt, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Dutch are renowned campers abroad, but mostly camp in their own country. This is why Holland boasts a great selection of campsites, both along the coast and in the wooded provinces. Depending on what you want, you can camp at so-called ‘non-designated campsites’, which are appointed by the Dutch Forestry Commission and offer limited facilities, or a family campsite with a swimming pool, play ground and many children’s activities.
