Think there's nowhere to go with kids in Amsterdam? Think again:

1. Artis
Expansive grounds that house vast number of exotic animals, towering trees and blooming flowers not only appeal to people of all ages but somehow sightseeing at such a place never saps you of all your energy.

Where is it: Plantage Kerklaan 38-40 1018 CZ Amsterdam

Open 9 - 5pm. Entrance fee: Adult Euro 17.70, senior citizens (65+) Euro 16.50 and children (3-9 years) Euro14.50. Note: these are the prices for 2008.

2. Molen Van Sloten ( The Sloten Windmill )
Located on the fringes of the bustling city, itís nowhere near the trendy urban spots.

Dating back to the 19th century, this windmill is one of the few that is still open to public (in fact according to the website this might be the only one accessible for public viewing).

Where is it: Molen van Sloten - Akersluis 10, 1066 EZ, Amsterdam-Sloten

Open from 10 am - 4 pm.

3 & 4- Het KinderKook Kafe & Vondelpark
Firstly, Vondelpark. This is a huge sprawling park filled with great towering trees, colorful flowers as well as the occasional artistic monument. Itís like a green haven within such a high paced city.

And now for KinderKook Kafe.

The little ones will conjure up a super duper meal (under the supervision of adults) for patrons.

Cheerful colors, fun cooking lessons for the kids and of course, a yummy meal at the end of the day.

Where is it: Vondelpark 6b, 1071 AA Amsterdam

5. TunFun
Suitable for children of up to 12 years, this indoor playground offers slides, ball pools, trampolines, soccer ground and so many other exciting activities.

Where is it: Mr. Visserplein 7, 1011 RD AMSTERDAM

Opening hours: 10am - 6pm

Children (1-12 years) Euro 17.50. Free entrance for adults over 18 and children under 1.
