The rooftop is open from 10:00 AM, which is perfect for families with smaller children. You can come here during daytime when it’s a little bit less people and calmer atmosphere. Perfect for a long lunch or just some afternoon drinks. During the evening there’s a more vibrant party feeling that surrounds the whole terrace.

Conclusion

This guide will help you find some amazing rooftops suited for families with children.

When reserving a table for lunch, drinks or dinner – always let the bar/restaurant know that you’ll bring your children. In this way they can give you a more suitable table and also let you know which days and times it’s best to make the visit.

And remember, the best way is always to book a hotel with a rooftop bar or rooftop pool. This way you will always be welcome. Your kids will love to swim in a swimming pool located at a roof. And so will you!
