Although Malta is a separate country in Europe, it is quite small and very accessible. With beautiful cities and beaches, Malta is particularly good to visit in summer. It has grown in popularity, especially with families, in recent years. You can take a rental car and visit different places on the island or just enjoy a relaxing family vacation on a beach - either way the island will make you relaxed and happy.

3. Turkey

In recent years, Turkey has become a less attractive holiday destination for tourists due to political reasons, but the land itself and especially the sea is as beautiful as ever. The staff makes every effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. With high summer temperatures and the refreshing sea, you can relax perfectly and every child will have fun. In addition, the Turkish cuisine convinces with the best food.

4. Balearic Islands

If you are making vacation plans in Europe, the Balearic Islands are one of the most popular places, too, and especially, for families. With Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera you always make a good choice. While Ibiza tends to appeal to teenagers and young people, Mallorca is interesting for all age groups. In addition to the party areas, there are also very quiet and peaceful beaches where you can relax wonderfully. Away from the centers, you can spend the night very comfortably.

If you want to visit different beaches, find such picturesque bays, then primarily on the larger islands it makes sense to rent a car and follow small roads. Any of the Balearic Islands is a good place to visit!

8. London

If you haven't thought about going on a city break with your kids, now is the time! In London there are many interesting events for minors as well as adults to explore. Examples are "Harry Potter's World" or the almost obligatory visit to Buckingham Palace with the Royals. Everyone will be fascinated by this gigantic city with its beautiful architecture and interesting sights on seemingly every corner. Ride the London Eye, see Big Ben and Tower Bridge, take a stroll in Hyde Park before grabbing a coffee in Covent Garden - and when you've seen enough of London there are plenty of day trips to choose from, for example to Oxford or Cambridge.

9. Paris

This is not only suitable for couples, but with its unique character and beautiful cityscape, Paris is also one of the best family destinations. Every child knows the Eiffel Tower and is likely to get pretty excited when they see the other quality attractions in the French capital. Since everything takes a little longer with kids, you can easily stay a week in Paris exploring the different areas this amazing destination has to offer. You can take the metro to reach most points in the city in style.

10. Switzerland

Lastly, Switzerland is the right place for those who want to be close to their family and nature. With its famous mountains, lakes and forests, the country is a perfect place to relax in beautiful scenery, whether staying in extravagant hotels or renting a simple cabin in the woods. You can enjoy the fresh air and the silence everywhere, or explore the valleys and mountains on the hiking trails that are well developed for tourism. Is there more beautiful photo opportunities than a lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains in the Swiss Alps?
