  • Great place for hiking all year round. Beautiful paths, ponds and trails to walk. Just a wonderful forest.

  • The Amsterdamse Bos is ideal for a walk or bike ride on beautiful days. It is very vast and different parts have their own atmosphere. Too bad so many people come by car, on sunny days, it is therefore quite crowded around to parking spaces. On the bicycle it is much more pleasant.

  • There was going to be a world for me when I discovered the Amsterdam forest. Hiking, biking, swimming, festivals, rowing, play, climb, everything is possible here. There is also a crazy goat farm. Without jokes, the Amsterdamse bos has the feeling of a forest and park in a. Nice, especially in the spring, summer and autumn. Did you know that the Amsterdam forest of the city of Amsterdam is?
