Holiday destinations for the May holidays
Are you already thinking about the beach? Or are you already thinking about those beautiful sights in that one beautiful city? Don’t worry, we have selected a number of places for you and your family.
A fun city trip to the capital of Hungary with the kids? Budapest is a city with many qualities and also one of the cheaper cities in Europe. The flight tickets and the stay in a hotel, airbnb or hostel are often very affordable and family-friendly.
You might not immediately think of this city for a holiday with the kids, but did you know that there are plenty of child-friendly activities, such as enjoying culture in the many museums, cycling tours through the city, relaxing in the bathhouses, playing on Margaret Island and taste local snacks at the Karavan.
A good tip when you visit the city is to purchase the Budapest Card. This allows you to travel for free on public transport and gives you free entry to certain museums and the thermal bath Lukács.
2. North Macedonia
This country is located in Eastern Europe and is not yet known among many people as a tourist destination, but that is certainly coming. Around Lake Ohrid you will find plenty of picturesque villages with child-friendly hotels and apartments.
The children can enjoy swimming and fishing. Macedonia has a beautiful nature, so you can certainly make a nice hike. You can also take a donkey ride through the mountains where you will pass several medieval villages.
Are your kids still small? Then May is the right month for you. It is not yet very hot, but the temperatures are certainly pleasant.
3. Ardennes, Belgium
Are you going away for the first time with your baby, toddler or toddler during the May holidays? Then the Ardennes is a very suitable choice for you. Stay close to home, but still have the feeling of vacation. The Ardennes not only have a beautiful environment, but are also very affordable.
For us as Dutch people you are there in no time. In the Ardennes you will find many campsites and holiday homes, where there is enough space for the whole family. Maybe grandpa and grandma will also come along or save a spot in the back for the dog.

Do you want to sniff a little more culture? Which can. There are several experience museums, nature parks and castles in this area.
Cyprus is one of the sunniest destinations in Europe. On this island you can enjoy a relaxed beach day, but there is also a lot to do on the island. For the children there are several water parks, swimming at Nissi Beach or spotting animals at Pafos Zoo.
The cities of Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaka and Pafos are the most popular destinations on the island. The cities each have their own charm and history.

The month of May is still under the dry season!
