Photowalk in Amsterdam – Amsterdamse Bos!

It often comes as a surprise to people when they find out there is a big forest in Amsterdam. The Amsterdamse Bos is a landscape park right outside Amsterdam centrum. We visit the forest as often as we can, and our dog Fia just loves to go exploring and swimming here. There is even a little cafe that always are packed with dogs and their owners chilling after a nice walk.

The park was mainly built in the early 1930s, mostly by the unemployment relief. Because of World War II interrupting the building process, the last tree was not planted until the 1970s. Amsterdamse Bos is approximately three times the size of Central Park in New York City, and annually more than 4 million people visit the park.

Here are some of my favourite photos from Amsterdamse Bos!

During all seasons of the year you can find great landscape photo opportunities in Amsterdamse Bos. If you are into sports photography you can find people biking, ice skating, riding or even rowing in the world’s oldest artificial rowing course called the bosbaan (forest course).

If you want to just relax and chill it is even possible to have barbecues in the park. Within the park you can also find several ponds, a goat farm that sells local produce, an open air theatre in the summer, a day camping and much more. Amsterdamse Bos certainly has something for everyone!

  3. Beautiful, and your opening line was spot on—as the site opened I thought, “wow, didn’t think there would be trees in Amsterdam!” Silly thought, but it was interesting to see such beautiful foliage. Thanks.
