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.

  • My wife did a Park Run here while we were on holiday. Easy to get to by bus from Amsterdam and then a really short walk. Lots to see and just relax. Nice community cafe by the entrance.

  • We live nearby and love the fresh air and excellent walking trails. Amsterdam bos is great for everyone wanting to get out and you can either walk or cycle.

  • Massive park with large amount of wooded areas. It is much more rustic and quiet compared to other Amsterdam area parks. Extensive amount of trails and a few cafes. Also interesting there is a massive rowing complex located in the park. There is a bike trail that runs alongside it.
  • Nice massive park just at the edge of the capital. Sometimes you wonder how such a massive green space could located just near to a big city. Plenty of walking and cycling trails through forest. And canoeing also available in the lake in middle. Separate kids pool also there. A big playground also available if you are in the mood to sweat a little.
  • It is lovely here during this time of the year. During the weekend it does tend to become a bit busy but the forest is so spacious that it doesn't become an issue! I definitely recommend coming here at some point during the warmer months to enjoy the sunshine to the fullest.
  • Amsterdam Forest (Bos) is an incredible artificial forest with lake and trail. Near the lake you can rent boat and eat icecream etc. You can enjoy the forest with dedicated horse, cycling and pedestrian track. I enjoyed sitting and enjoying in this beautiful and peaceful place.
  • Perfect place to go with bikes or to take a walk but prefered with bike as it is huge! The trails are well done and you've indications during the whole way. There are toilets and places to have some lunch or drinks. Full of nice flora and fauna, with lakes and places to rent kayaks or canoes. I love it!
