NS De Bretten
The 10 km long NS De Bretten trail connects Halfweg-Zwanenburg with Amsterdam Sloterdijk. The route has many activities that are nice for older children.
The NS De Bretten walk is a nature walk close to Amsterdam. Beginning in Halfweg -Zwanenburg, it makes its way around the south-east edge of Park Spaarnwoude. The path passes lakes, canals and ponds, before going under the motorway and looping around the Garden Park Groote Braak. At the south-western corner of that park is a pont that kids will like. They can also climb the rock-face under the motorway. It follows the rail tracks before it winds through Spieringhorn park. The last stretch follows a narrow band of bush along the Haarlemmerweg before entering commercial areas and reaching Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station.
