Even on a sunny day Bos is big enough to accomodate crowds so you dont feel like people take over nature. Great to cycle, so serene and natural. Make sure to visit the goat farm.

If you feel like escaping to the nature but you can't travel too far, Amsterdamse Bos is the place to go! Kids will find a lot of activities there, dogs will be running free happily and you can just enjoy the beauty of this place!
