Amsterdam is world-renowned as a place for adults, but in reality, it's actually a family oriented city with endless activities for children. There isn't a perfect time to visit Amsterdam with kids, but I highly recommend staying far away during the rainy months of December through March.

How many days should you spend in Amsterdam?

There’s no right answer, but you can get a real feel for the city if you allocate three full days. That will give you enough time to hit the big sights, see the canals, and explore your way through some neighborhoods.

Getting around town

Amsterdam is an easy city to navigate. While the public transport is first class, most visitors find that the city is compact enough to be 100% walkable, save for the train to-and-from Schiphol Airport. Plus, you can easily rent a bicycle when the weather's nice.

How expensive is Amsterdam?

While there are a couple big activities you will have to pay for (like the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum), Amsterdam is full of street markets and small independent galleries. And the city is so walkable that you won’t need to spend a lot on public transportation.
