“An Oasis just outside the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

beautiful, extensive park with areas for picnicking, walking, running, bike riding, rowing and camping. while I wouldn't recommend for anyone only in town for a short time, for someone visiting long-term or living here, you would be remiss not to visit.

“Must do in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Amsterdamse Bos is a huge park located in the very south and has part of it in Amstelveen. Fantastic place for summer afternoons with children. The best way to explore it is by bike, as it is huge. Tip: rent a boat and row through the internal lakes and canals !

Originally this park was built for the olympic games before ww2 , now it's a very relaxing place to be especially during weekdays when it's quiet. A great place tojust stroll along.
