I booked a small cabin for my friends and I over 4th of July weekend. It was fantastic. We rented bicycles and rode into town one day and had a blast. It was a short walk to the bus stop, and roughly a 30 minute ride to Centraal Station. The cabin was big enough to fit the 5 of us,... More

There is a bike hire shop just at the entrance with reasonable prices. The Bos is a huge, man made forest that had playgrounds, stables and a few bars dotted around. There are lots... More

The Amsterdamse Bos is especially nice for nature lovers and if you have a bike. Best time of the year to go here would be in summertime and to also visit the goat farm and to have their delicious ice cream.

This place is perfect to go for a run or bike ride. Will very often see large exercise groups & runners, dogs etc. Also a very nice place to relax in, as there is so much room its not like the other parks in Amsterdam that are always busy when the sun is out!

We visited in a mild (for December) day walking the dog. It's a stunning place. It's huge and open with loads of different paths and routes to take, a definite must to shake off those cobwebs. Lovely

There is a great free playground for kids. Sort of survival track / path on land and true / on water. So it could be an all day event and nice to go if you have a birthday
