“Relax and walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

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 and have lessons. There are many picnic areas and all so many music festivals in the summer. You can do many water sports here like swimming, water bike riding, rowing. At the edge of the park is many hockey fields. it is the headquarters for national rowing tournaments. One of my favourite spots to visit as our family live close to this area.

“awesome place to take a break from the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Best place to spend a sunny day in Amsterdam if you are done with the busy life of the city. Best way to enjoy it is by bike with your pick-nick bag...

“Hide and Seek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Just relaxing. We could escape from the crowdy centre! And the Amsterdamse Bos got a lot to offer. You even have a Spa & Welness centre located over there. We watched the rowing at the 'Bosbaan'!
