Enjoy a mix of indoor and outdoor culture on an urban route that is fun for the whole family.

I would suggest doing this tour by bicycle. The GPS location at the start of the tour is just outside the MacBike rental shop at Central Station. Depending on the age of your kids you can rent bikes with kids seats on them, bikes that the kids can ride themselves (I would only recommend this if they are at least 10 years old and good cyclists) or a bakfiets (a long bicycle with a box on the front where the children can sit). This MacBike location is open daily 9am-5:45pm. See pricing at You also can walk this tour, but walking will take much of the day so you will want to have strollers for the younger kids. If you do walk I recommend taking Tram No. 1 from the last point of interest back to Central Station. Finally, I suggest packing layers for the kids no matter what the weather looks like. The weather in Amsterdam can change from sunny to windy to wet in no time. Enjoy!
