As Amsterdam's largest park, Amsterdamse Bos boasts thick swathes of trees, open meadows, and a wealth of opportunities for outdoor activities. Visit the forest and stop by the visitor center, where you can learn more about the local wildlife, vegetation, and ecology. To get a different view of the area, join an excursion on one of the many tour boats that ply the forest's canals and waterways. You can also hop aboard a bicycle to explore the extensive network of bike trails and footpaths. Then pay a visit to one of the cafes or restaurants throughout the park--don't miss the chance to try a famous Dutch pancake. Be sure to check the park's calendar to see what kinds of performances and events are in store during your visit. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Amsterdam trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

    Wonderful to through the forest to open. You have several places you can go bv the goat farm, the pancake shop, spa pure, children's zwembadjes and so there are also other things to do.

    About 35 minutes by bicycle from Amsterdam Centre (for example: Leidseplein) a park really huge and beautiful. Meadows, forests and lakes from cycling and kayaking. On foot you are likely to see very little because it's really big. Inside the Park you can visit a farm with animals and you can feed and to drink milk with bottle in delicious goats running free. Ideal for those with young children to let him live a great experience.
