Amusement Parks / Zoos

If your are traveling with a family you may want to take advantage of a European amusement park. Keeping both children and adults entertained may require visiting an amusement park that will appeal to  both young and old. Disneyland Park is just outside of Paris and other countries have major attractions for the family. The oldest amusement park in the world is Dyrehavsbakken, the Danes just call it Bakken and it is just outside of Copenhagen. However, everyone goes to the famous Tivoli Gardens, the second oldest amusement park, right in the center of Copenhagen. Denmark is also home to Lego’s and Legoland in Billund.
Smaller side attractions such as Mini-Europe in Brussels and individual ones like the London Eye will also provide children a form of entertainment to their liking. Many cities have large TV towers, like Berlin’s TV tower Fernsehturm Berliner, or structures, like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, that provide panoramic views and are also family fun. These will also not consume most of your day to do, leaving time for other activities.

Water parks have also become a popular part of the amusement scene. Of course the outdoor parks  are open only during the summer season, much as they do in the US. Large public spas and hot springs in many cities are also facilities with large pools that attractive for family activity. Go to our spa and wellness page for a list of popular sites.

Another great way for families to share in the European adventure is to visit a zoo or aquarium. Young children are not going to be interested in looking at fine art or relating to the historical significance of antiquities in a museum.

Creating time for them to do fun things like a zoo, aquarium, amusement or water park will make the trip easier on the adults.
