When travelling with kids, you want to choose places that are not only safe for them but will also offer tons of fun and experiences that will make positive impacts in their lives. You certainly want your kids to have wonderful childhood memories that will become their ‘bonfire stories’ when they become adults, stories they will also share with their own children someday. With this in mind, Europe is definitely among your top choices as this continent houses some of the best cities that are family-friendly. And don’t worry about your transportation because many companies are specialised in luxury car hire in Europe like Primerent for example that offer high-end cars for short and medium term rentals. They guarantee excellent cars for families wanting to travel in comfort and style.
So, without further ado, here are five of the best family-friendly European cities:

1. Amsterdam
There’s more to Amsterdam than Heineken tours and the red light district. Its laid back culture is perfect for families, along with abundant kid-friendly food and activities like pancakes and biking around town, respectively. It also boasts several amazing museums such as the NEMO Science Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Ann Frank Museum, Tropenmuseum, and so much more. And, you will surely enjoy the Canal Tour that does not only offer a break for the weary feet but impressive sights, as well.

2. Dublin
There are tons of stuff for you and your kids in this city. Some of the must-see places include the Dublin Zoo, National Museum of Ireland – Natural History, Phoenix Park, and the Ark, a children’s cultural center in Templar Bar. Also, feed countless of ducks at Stephen’s Green, ride the Viking Splash Tour, visit the aquarium, hike up to Bray Head or just take a family stroll by the sea. If you are fascinated by history, you will also be thrilled to visit Glendalough and Kilmainham Gaol.

3. Copenhagen
If your kids are into fairy tales and castles, they will surely love Copenhagen where you can also all have a thrilling ride at the Tivoli Gardens amusement park. With beautiful landscapes, colourful buildings, wonderful culture, and the capital’s safest streets, you and your kids will surely have the best vacation. Don’t miss the famed Little Mermaid statue and the largest aquarium in Northern Europe.

4. Rome
For kids fascinated with gladiators and ancient battles, Rome is the city that blends history and modernity. A trip to the Colosseum and Ostia Antica, a splash in the Trevi Fountain, and a visit to the Vatican should all be on your list. Who knows, you might even be lucky enough to meet the Pope. And while pizza is plentiful, you will better appreciate Rome’s love for great food through the Elizabeth Minchilli’s food tours.

5. Paris
This is the most visited city in all of Europe and for many reasons. Your kids will surely be delighted with all the street performances in every turn and abundant food on every corner – crepes, baguettes and croissants! Everything in this beautiful city will leave you bedazzled. The Louvre, the Notre Dame, the Luxembourg Gardens and the Eiffel Tower - all these will absolutely mark your memories with nothing but greatness!
