Many people out enjoying their days. Big open fields, lots of water, boat rentals, bike rentals. Not sure what else to write about. For this... More

Away from the crowd it gives one enough space to feel that one is in a quiet location. Near the paddling pool and the snack places it is obviously more crowded, but with good weather that is to be expected

Stayed there to attend Electronic Family Festival. The place was very comfortable and the man at the frontdesk was really helpful. Everything was ok for me. Place is very quiet. I rented a cabin and it was enough for my staying.

Amsterdamse Bos is the largest green area in the Amsterdam metropolitan area (although most of the park is located in Amstelveen): 3x larger than New York's Central Park and comparable in its size to Bois de Boulogne in Paris. It is totally artificially created, on unused turf lands and wetlands just out of the city. As some of the trees... More

For those who are too scared to ride the bicycle inside the city - take a lovely day off to visit the Amsterdamse Bos. In the entrance to the Bos you will find an information centre where you could get a map and rent bikes. The scenery is astonishing and the bicycle lanes are wide and easy to ride on.... More

The Amsterdamse Bos is a great place to be outdoor in contact with the nature. We took a ride with our bikes with my wife amd we enjoyed a lot the beautiful forest and the quietness of the place. Its 5' from the city but you feel kilometers away. Very nice!
