A very good place to visit for the family with children

A nice park to relax, enjoy seeing the beautiful goats and chickens freely roaming around the grounds. The park is very well managed. One could easily spend up to 2 hours there.

Stopped off here on the historic tram ride and was surprized to discover a forest park so close to the city of Amsterdam. Could have spent longer here exploring but had a toasted sandwich filled with something delicious from a secret recipe and watched the low flying planes departing from the airport then got back on the historic tram

We were in a camp right under the Amsterdamse Bos park, and the best part of the vacation was the half-hour ride through this park. I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT!

This is a planned landscaped forest and it is an ideal place for relaxing, sporting or playing around with the kids. Away from the busy city centre you will definitely find some rest. It's pretty stretched, so also ideal for longer runs. Other possible activities are swimming, climbing and canoeing. Eatery possibilities include pancaked (go to the end of the... More

We did a walking tour around the bosbaan. Worthwhile to experience Amsterdam in such a different way, Away from the crowds and back to (manmade) 'nature'. On Sundays it is a bit crowded with other city slickers going out for some fresh air.

Beautiful place that, due to it's size, always feels like your strolling around quite privately. With lots of things to do (adventure-park, restaurants, beaches) this is definitely a good place to visit when the weather is good.

What a great place to relax and sun bathe in summer! Great place to go on foot through the woods giving the feeling of walking in a real forest.

Probably not on the list if you visit for a weekend only, but definitely worthwhile if you stay for a bit longer. Kids would love the "great outdoors" here, and for adults there is fabulous hiking and running... even horseback riding. Nice!
