Children's scavenger hunt Jordaan and canals

A scavenger hunt for children through northern part of the Jordaan area and canals, full of statues, courtyards, special buildings and lots of fun facts for small scavenger hunters. Fun for children and parents. Suitable for children aged 6 to 12 and also fun for a school trip to Amsterdam.

Route of the scavenger hunt

The walking route runs along the Noordermarkt, along a part of the canals, the Westermarkt and back into the Jordaan via the Tuinstraat, Westerstraat and Lindengracht and back to the Noordermarkt. The questions are educational and suitable for children. The route runs in a circle; where you start you also end. That is why you can decide where you want to start on the route yourself. A perfect activity in Amsterdam during your holiday or a birthday party. We also offer the scavenger hunt in Dutch.

Scavenger hunt package

The scavenger hunt consists of a steady folder, 14 stop points with text and colour photos and an answer form. The laminated map shows the walking route and the stopping points. You will also receive a pen and the correct answers in a closed envelope so that you can check your answers afterwards. You can do the scavenger hunts when it suits you and you can keep all the material afterwards. A scavenger hunt package costs € 25,00.
