Amsterdam is one of the most unique European cities, famous for its winding canals and narrow houses, giving it the nickname “Venice of the North.”

While most people associate Amsterdam with the Red Light District, windmills and tulips, there is in fact plenty of things to do in Amsterdam for any visitor, including families with kids.
