If the weather is good and you feel like stretching your legs or go cycling for a few hours, this is the best place in Amsterdam. There is a very good pancake farmhouse in the park and they serve all the pancakes you can image. You can rent small peddle boats , do horse riding, or spoil your kids with... More

In the middle of this busy town there is a park where you can relax, where people play instruments, dance or juggle for entertainment, while you picknick

It's a wonderful piece of nature where you can relax and enjoy the sun, run around or ride a horse, even take a swim. Seek for the rast-cows (a strange kind of cows with very long heirs..), they are amazing! And it's even a good location for airplane-watching: imagine laying in the grass looking at 747 or Airbus380 passing just... More

We had only one day to spend here. We rented bicycles at the Fietsverhuur Amsterdamse Bos de Boshalte. The owners were wonderfully helpfulness they are just across the street from the information center. The park is free to enter and has an interesting history as to how it was built, so check out the web site before you visit. We... More

Love the variety of things to do, the obstacle course is a great distraction for 10 to adult adventurers. We visited the goat farm too which was fun. Hire a bike and spend a day exploring. Lots of cafés, and swimming places if you get lucky with the weather.

... At least for us Germans that have tons of wood in real dark forests, this doesn't apeal to us like a real forest and more like a park without seatbanks. Strange experience, as you see it did not grow manually.

Went here the day that we were going to fly out of Schiphol (and we were at a hotel in the area), so it seemed like a more convenient thing to do rather than go back into the city. Though accessible by public transportation, and we were quite close, it actually was a slow trip, including some walking, and would... More
