There are so many unforgettable activities in Europe for families to enjoy together! Whether you and the kids are looking for a sporty or more relaxed trip away, choosing to visit great European cities such as London, Brussels and Barcelona will mean you have an incredible time. We’re sure that kids, adults and teenagers alike will be kept entertained by these 5 activities we’ve chosen!
See some culture in Edinburgh… The Edinburgh Festival
The largest arts festival in the world, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe takes place for three weeks every August. If you pay the festival a visit with your family, you’ll see both big names and unknown artists performing a variety of music, theatre and dance. There’ll be lots of other events and exhibitions too, including activities to enjoy as a family. Kids can participate in the children’s comedy and storytelling events and there are even play activities for the even younger ones, so your family won’t be getting bored on your August Edinburgh trip!
A great family activity in London… The London Eye
We know your kids would love a ride on the London Eye! Who wouldn’t? When visibility is clear you can see as far as Windsor Castle (or up to 25 miles/40KM away), and you’ll be on the Eye for 30 minutes as it slowly rotates. During this bucket-list activity in Europe you’ll see iconic sights in London such as the Gherkin, Westminster and the Houses of Parliament… the London Eye is a must-do for you and your family!
For a family trip to Berlin… Zoologischer Garten & Aquarium
Did you know that the Zoologischer Garten & Aquarium is the most popular zoo in Europe? What about the fact that it’s the oldest zoo in Germany? Knowing that the zoo has around 14,000 creatures makes it even more impressive, particularly as some are rare and endangered.
There’s also a wonderful aquarium with a great shark exhibit for your kids to marvel at, as well as a few crocodiles. The adults of the family need not worry about it being entirely for kids though; the design of the zoo and the beautifully landscaped gardens are bound to impress. If you pass through Berlin, this is one of the best ideas for a family activity in Europe!
A thrilling evening activity in Barcelona… The Magic Fountain
The Magic Fountain display, located in Montjuïc where the 1992 Barcelona Olympics were held, provides a spectacular mix of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics, and we’re sure that you’ll enjoy it as much as your kids do! The Magic Fountain display doesn’t run on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays though, so be organised or you may miss out.
An unforgettable activity in Brussels… The Belgian Comic Strip Centre
More than 4.200m² of exhibitions dedicated to the world of comics can be found in The Belgian Comic Strip Center, located in the centre of Brussels. How great does this sound? Also, the building is a stunning example of Art Nouveau design, so visitors who aren’t mad about comics will still find lots to appreciate during this family activity in Europe!
