The woods and lake of Kralingen (Kralingse Bos, Kralingse Plas) is a big recreational area on the east outskirts of Rotterdam, accessible by public transport (station ‘Kralingse Zoom’).

The lake is reasonably large, you try out some rowing or small boat sailing. The boats are for hire.

Beautiful and peacefull park in the heart of Rotterdam. Excellent for jogging and other sports. Where you can have a nice meal in nature with friends and family. To relax and enjoy the sunset.

Had a wonderful time riding around the park on a bicycle. There's multiple spots for outdoor sports activities, a beach and several restaurants. The park has good infrastructure for sports as well as for leisure. There's a small zoo on the northern side.
