Having lived close to the Amsterdamse Bos for about 3-4 years, I can confidently say this is one of the most calm and peaceful area in and around Amsterdam. Great for long walks, you can take a different route each day and still have lots...More

Very nice place for photo opportunities, and has a nice, raised exploration/play area as well. I liked the serene atmosphere and seeing joggers pass by, and it was cool to happen upon the free geitenboerderij (goat farm) in the middle!

You can find lots of greenery here and couple of lakes. Plan to come here on sunny day to spend entire day. Don't miss the goat milk ice-cream at Geitenboerderij Ridammerhoeve.

A perfect hideout from Amsterdam. You can rent canoës and explore this beautiful place at the small rivers running through it

It is called bos (forest) but it is more of a very big park. Lots of water (streams and lakes). Narrow winding paths and big grassy meadows. Nice place to walk and relax
