Amsterdamse Bos - Amstelveen
Although on the outskirts of Amsterdam, the largest part of Amsterdamse Bos lies on Amstelveen territory. We owe the park to nature loving Jac. P. Thijsse. He worried about the lack of green space in Amsterdam and urged that the Nieuwe Meer area should be developed into a large park area. From the outset, Amsterdamse Bos was a real puller, and has remained so in the course of time. Amsterdamse Bos allows for a great range of activities: you can row on the Bosbaan lake, play, clamber and climb to your heart’s desire, or just bring your picnic basket and find a quiet spot.
