Forget about dragging your family through one stodgy museum after another – Europe is full of vibrant sights, scenery, and attractions that will engage kids of all ages. And being completely immersed in a different culture can inspire a lifetime of wanderlust.

Logistically, there are a few things to consider. Depending on the ages of your children, it may be best to choose one destination as a base rather than shuttle between several different cities. Day trips are much easier when you don’t have to bring along all your baggage. That said, if your child is a train aficionado, taking advantage of the continent’s high-speed service could result in the trip of a lifetime.

Consider off-the-beaten-path destinations where you can enjoy unique experiences without the stress of making your way around a major metropolis. Renting an apartment or a private home can be a great way to cut costs while comfortably lodging your entire family. Cooking your family’s favorite meals in your own kitchen will make a new place feel like home.

Before setting out, get your kids interested in the destination. Learning a few phrases of the local language, becoming an expert on the royal family, or whipping up the national dish can be almost as much fun as the trip itself.

When you arrive at your destination, aim for piazzas and gardens to give your kids a chance to run around. Europe has a rich history, so consider taking a tour of a local castle or wandering through an archaeological site. Who knows, your children might even learn something!
