Berlin or Munich both fab - loads to see and for for all ages and plenty of history as well.

I just came back from Madrid! I am going to Bruges during October half term 😊

I’d second Amsterdam - lovely city, with great parks, museums, boat trips that the kids would enjoy. We walked a lot as we enjoy looking at things as we wander, but transport is easy around the city to save little legs. Or you could hire bikes , that was a lot of fun! You can get kids tandems/trailers if they’re too young to ride themselves.

Alicante! Fabulous old town. Beach and harbour and tram to other seaside towns. Castle for the culture with amazing views

DD and I went to Rome one October half term. It was brilliant, but involved a lot of walking, so maybe save that until your DC are older.

DH, DS(8) and I are going to Wrocław in Poland this Oct half term.

My friend is originally from there, and she recommended it. Lots of museums and a very good zoo. Picturesque town square. Lots of good quality chain hotels. We are staying in a Novotel.

It's a university town, so there's plenty of cheap eats, hipster coffee hangouts and craft beer (which we are into!). Way cheaper than Krakow.

I can't wait!

We're booked to go to Munich for half term.
Last year age nearly 4 DS loved the science museum and the flight museum.
It's a great city.

Amsterdam. I'm an Amsterdam blogger specialising in a family friendly approach to the city. Take a look at and let me know if I can help with anything

Copenhagen. We really enjoyed it. You could spend a day at the Viking long ship place just outside (I can't recall what it is called but accessible by train and bus), nice little Hans Christian Anderson museum and of course Tivoli gardens.

I'm looking for a city break for October half term. 3 -4 nights, but we are flexible. Open to any destinations. We like exploring and into history, (although not essential) however, my kids are 6 and 4 and ideally would like to find somewhere that is suitable for us all. May be somewhere we can appreciate the history of the destination, but on one of the days something fun for the kids to enjoy. Looking for any ideas. Thanks.
