Boerenwandeling Amsterdamse Bos

Boerenwandeling

The 4.5 km Boerenwandeling is walking route no. 3 in the Amsterdam Forest. The loop-walk passes the Meerzicht farm and Ridammerhoeve goat farm.

Beginning and ending at the Boerderij Meerzicht Pancake Restaurant and farm, this loop walk proceeds south along the Ringvart Dike and canal, passing the Vogeleiland (a recommended detour) before reaching the Geitenboerderij Ridammerhoeve Goat Farm. It then returns northwards past the Doolhof maze and Groot Kinderbad (large kids pool). Great for kids. Part of the Amsterdam Forest walks.

Personal Notes

Walking track starts at the Pancake Restaurant Boerderij Meerzicht. It heads south along the Ringvaart van de Haarlemmermeerpolder, which was used to drain the Haarlemmermeer in the mid 1800s. Quite a feat. The walking route bends to the left at the Pumping Station which is used to keep the Amsterdam Forest dry. A little further on I always deviate from the main walking track and visit the Vogeleiland (Bird Island). This is a great place to have lunch. You eventually reach the Goat Farm which is very popular with children. A little further north is the Maze, also fun with children. The track continues through forest before reaching the Grote Speelweide (Big Play Meadow) where there's also a children's swimming pool. It then proceeds north through forest until you return to the start.
