As Amsterdam's largest park, Amsterdamse Bos boasts thick swathes of trees, open meadows, and a wealth of opportunities for outdoor activities. Visit the forest and stop by the visitor center, where you can learn more about the local wildlife, vegetation, and ecology. To get a different view of the area, join an excursion on one of the many tour boats that ply the forest's canals and waterways. You can also hop aboard a bicycle to explore the extensive network of bike trails and footpaths. Then pay a visit to one of the cafes or restaurants throughout the park--don't miss the chance to try a famous Dutch pancake. Be sure to check the park's calendar to see what kinds of performances and events are in store during your visit. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Amsterdam trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
