Climbing up to a pirate’s nest, sailing in a pedal boat or hitting the ball at the midget golf track. You can do all this and more at Linnaeushof, Europe’s biggest playground.
- Europe's biggest playground.
- There is a special toddler and preschooler playground for the smalllest children.
- Bad weather? Don't worry. There is plenty to do in the indoor playground, too.
Europe's biggest playground
Linnaeushof does not have long queues or rollercoasters. Europe’s biggest playground lets children play ‘for real’. Being active and using your imagination are the main things. Your children will have the time of their lives on the climbing gear, pedal boats, trampolines and slides. The disabled and wheelchair users are equally welcome, since some of the playground equipment has been modified especially for them.
Great in sunshine and rain
From May through September the water playground is open if the weather is good, so children can play around with water. But there is plenty to do when it rains, too, since there is an indoor playground with air carts, mini cars and a playground street
For the very smallest
Linnaeushof is a great place for the smallest ones, too. There is a separate playground for toddlers and preschoolers where they won’t get run down by bigger children. Dreumesland is a safe place for little ones.
Linnaeushof is about a twenty minute drive from Haarlem, Noordwijk and Zandvoort. If you prefer public transport, you can take bus 50 from Haarlem or Leiden station. The stop: Linnaeushof.
Other great places for children
Do your children dream to be astronauts? They will learn all about space exploration at Space Expo. During the weekends and holidays, the Space Train will allow you to look in on ESTEC, the European Space Research and Technology Centre.
Linnaeushof is just a fifteen minute drive from the Keukenhof. This way, in spring you can organize a great outing in the flower-bulb region and find a table on a terrace in nearby Haarlem at the end of the day. Here, you will find countless restaurants and cafés.
