Lovely place to spend a day with children - we spent the day cycling round the park with our kids on the cycle paths. There are a number of playgrounds with paddling pools and an adventure playground above water! Near the main entrance there is ample parking(this can be used to park for a trip into amsterdam) which is free.... More

Amsterdamse Bos is very close to the home we are staying at. We hop on our bikes and head into the park in any direction to discover something new. One day we found a small farm/petting zoo. The next we found a massive lawn area where we parked the bikes, lay down a blanket, took in some rays and swam... More

Huge park at city outskirts, great to spend a day with kids, rent a bike it is far too large for just walking, check out the kids farm and especially the canoe lake, make a paddling tour and feel in a real jungle just silence and ducks, hang out and picnic on the grass next to lake and go for...

We went there becaue we generally love parks, but this one is really not worth going to, if you donot have much time. There are many other much more beautiful oarks in Amsterdam, perhaps not as big and perhaps not as central!

Taking a walk in the Amsterdamse Bos is always a pleasure. There is enough space for everybody! This time we saw one or two benches painted in the Dutch national colours! Real fun. One can get there easily by public transport. There's also a little cute tramway. Eating a pancake at the "Boerderij Meerzicht" is a real must. http://www.amsterdamsebos.nl/algemene_onderdelen/english/ Warmly... More

Amsterdamse bos in my opinion is the most beautiful part of Amsterdam area. Huge forest with plenty of walking and biking path. Full of stunning canels and lakes. Sunset by a lake will top up your day. The pancake house in the middle of the forest (http://www.boerderijmeerzicht.nl/en) is a most go on a sunny day, where you can enjoy Dutch... More

Lovely place to relax and walk. There are many entrances and parking areas. Many people go jogging and walking here especially a lot of dog walkers. Keep to the walking paths as there is path ways for bikes separate to walkers. There is a little farm to visit with animals for children to visit. You can also go horse riding... More
