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.

  • This park is between Amsterdam and the Airport. It is nice to cycle or walk around, but if you really like nature, it is beter to go to the dunes along the coast or the Veluwe.  more »

  • Sensational place! Blessed with finest of natural beauty. Amazing in the summer for a dive. You can BBQ here. Definitely visit for a good dive.
  • Beautiful place to bike ride on your own or with a group of loved ones. The trails are endless and the scenic route is awesome. Also a great place to grab a picnic basket and enjoy lunch with your friends.
  • What place.. A proper format right at the outskirts of the city and so much to do. Only been a few times yet, and looking forward to the next visit
  • Very nice place ( boys, bring your girlfriend here now!) there is a romantic atmosphere and nice place to ride a bike. There is also a mini water park for children to play and for football lovers, there a lot of football pitches, I highly recommend it.
  • Great place to spend your weekend. There is also a lake where you can swim in the summer, and a goat farm, playgrounds, and of course bike paths for many kilometers in the shade of trees. If you are tired of the bustling city center - here you are!
