With the half term approaching, we’ve put together the best cities in Europe for you to visit on your next motorhome holiday with your family this summer.
Europe is full of child-friendly restaurants, hotels and activities. Here are our favourites to visit this summer.
With playgrounds and glorious parks in every neighbourhood, London has plenty to entertain young visitors. Its vast range of museums and sporting venues make it a winner for teens, too. From the Tower of London to the Changing of the Guard, there’s much in London that will bring history to life.
If you want your trip to London to fun but educational then visit the London museums as they are free.
There is far more to Amsterdam than coffee shops and the red light district; in fact, it’s the ideal place for children. From canals to pancakes, there’s plenty to draw children in Amsterdam.
Start by touring the city by boat or bicycle. The Van Gogh museum is unmissable and for children of mid-primary school age and upwards, the Anne Frank House offers unforgettable insight into the horrors of war.
The food will please even the fussiest eaters as Amsterdam may be the most easy-going family city destination in Europe.
Disney’s sappy happy endings have no place in Copenhagen. Here, the fairy tales take a darker and altogether more fascinating turn. From the sad mermaid in the harbour to the magical Round Tower, with its equestrian staircase, there is plenty of food for thought.
Tivoli, Copenhagen’s amusement park, open since the days of Hans Christian Andersen, features a handful of adrenaline rides, but also flower gardens, funfair booths, a lake, good dining venues and a romantic air in the evenings.
Luckily, Copenhagen is so compact, that you can easily stroll with the children around town. It also has some spectacular castles are just half an hour’stravel in your motorhome.
When travelling as a family, all roads should lead to Rome. This capital of ancient history, fantastic cuisine, and stunning beauty will please even the grumpiest travellers.
Coordinate with the school curriculum, and trips to the Vatican or the Colosseum will seem like an investment in your child’s academic future. As a reward for good behaviour after, enjoy some pizza and gelato. With the fine dining across Rome, you and your family won’t struggle for a meal out. This is one location not to be spent eating tea in your motorhome.
If you travel with your family then you have come to the Bavarian capital to revel in handcrafted toys. Disney fans will want to visit Neuschwanstein Castle, the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s pad. After all that, you’ve probably earned yourself a few hours in one of Munich’s many beer gardens where, luckily, children are welcome.Depending on the age of your children if you are able to get a nice evening to yourself whilst your children relax in their motorhome then enjoy the very best of Oktoberfest. With some of the best-tasting beer and wine around you will be spending the following morning sleeping in your motorhome.

From fire-eaters on La Rambla to the ever-present Gaudi, Barcelona offers everything that is most charming about Mediterranean cities. The city is extremely relaxed and endures months of the sunshine which goes together well with its unbeatable food. Whenever you tire of urban life, you can always collapse on the city’s fine stretch of beach.
Sweden’s capital is bursting at the seams with things to lure children: from the World of Pippi Longstocking amusement park or a casual stroll right by the royal palace to the ever-present cinnamon and cardamom buns.
Spend a day island hopping and the whole family will be charmed by the irresistible allure of Stockholm’s island districts, which are bound together by bridges and ferries. To save on your trip, purchase a Stockholm Card.
Overlooking the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik, a Unesco World Heritage Site, is one of the planet’s most magnificent walled cities; it is the perfect family city break to combine history and activity. Why not climb the city walls in the morning, and take in the coastline from the comfort of your own kayak in the afternoon?
