Because of the plenty of hotspots to visit with the kids, Rotterdam is a fantastic city to visit during summer holiday. And you can make your visit to Rotterdam even more worthwhile by staying at PREMIER SUITES PLUS Rotterdam. We are close to Central Station and in the heart of the city.

Top 10 activities to do with kids in the Netherlands:

1. Plaswijckpark

Plaswijckpark is a really nice play and water park in Rotterdam. There is everything from zip wires to a fun car track to drive around. You can take small peddle boats out on to the lake or play inside at the large ball park.

2. De ontdekhoek

This interactive museum is for children aged 4 – 14 and has a large workshop area where you can experiment and join endless activities.

3. Kids Marina

This is a really cool activity to do with kids. Just outside the Maritime Museum there is a little harbour where children can jump on a variety of boats, from police boats to water taxis, and steer around. It’s a safe activity for all ages and gives a nice twenty minutes of fun.

4. Maritime Museum

The Maritime Museum has permanent exhibitions but also got its special events. You can get information about the history of the Netherlands, particularly the role of Rotterdam. The museum is located in a historic part of the city’s port and it’s a great place for kids to learn more about the country’s past. There’s also an amazing play area on the top floor.

5. Miniworld Rotterdam

Miniworld is an absolutely incredible place – you can see all the major sights of the Netherlands in miniature.

6. Rotterdam Zoo (Diergaarde Blijdorp)

Blijdorp is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful zoos in Europe, with plenty things to do. Blijdorp is a home to giraffes, gorillas, polar bears and many more animals, all of which have their own unique habitat. There is a spacious playground for the children and for the adults there is a nice restaurant to eat and relax.

7. Splash tour

The Splashtour bus is a great way to see the city – a bright yellow amphibian bus which drives around the main sights before splashing in to the River Maas and turning in to a boat. The 60 minute tour will be a big hit with all ages, you can even have lunch or afternoon tea on board.

8. Pancake Boat

What’s not to love about a pancake boat? Get on board and take a trip around the canals of Rotterdam while helping yourself to an endless supply of pancakes and toppings. We always recommend to make reservations. There are also nice packages to book.

9. Fun Forest

Fun Forest is a climbing park with 8 different courses set amongst the trees and ranging in difficulty. There’s a free play wood for under 8s.

10. Rotterdam Hop On Hop Off Buss

After a day full of these activities, it's time to fully explore the city. Take the Hop On and Hop off bus and relax. View the city and listen to all the information that is given. The children can rest a bit while you enjoy our beautiful city!

It is very easy to explore Rotterdam with children, because there is plenty to do! At the reception we can help you with making reservations or booking tickets.
