Amsterdam Forest

The Amsterdam Forest is the largest nature reserve close to Amsterdam.

There are several walks in the park ranging from 4 to over 20km. It is a great place to go for some time-out, and is relatively empty on weekdays. Children love the play areas, pools and child-farm, while nature-lovers will enjoy several opportunities for bird watching.

There are several 'official' walking routes through the park. I've created a few more either depending on time available or routes past interesting areas.

The map shows all walks and any places of interest in the park. Click an icon to see details. An alphabetical list of articles is shown below.
