Family holidays in the Netherlands
Getting a family holiday right can be tricky, especially if you need to cater for children of various ages, but there are loads of family holidays in the Netherlands to choose from which are sure to keep both you and your little ones entertained.
Travelling with children on a cramped aeroplane can be strenuous, and keeping energetic teens upbeat while they are away from their friends is another matter entirely, but the Netherlands offers so many things to see and do that you won’t need to worry about stressful journeys or having to hear that dreaded phrase “I’m bored”.
Kaleidoscopic fields of flowers, old-fashioned windmills, cheese markets, wooden clogs, meandering canals, and millions of bicycles make a trip Holland a real treat for everyone. There are as many types of holidays as there are families, and the Netherlands offers both big city buzz and rural hideaways.
From the port of Rotterdam, you’re just a short drive away from iconic Amsterdam and The Hague, or you can choose to venture nearer to the German and Belgian borders to experience idyllic Dutch villages like Giethoorn and Broek.
Whatever escapade you’re looking for, here’s a snapshot of what you can expect from family holidays in the Netherlands. Travel to the Netherlands with options, choose from either our usual Hull to Rotterdam Ferry route, our Hull to Rotterdam mini-cruise route, or our Amsterdam mini-cruise breaks!
