Amsterdamse Bos

on
In case you have been living in a cave
king winter is leaving us to clear the way
for my favorite time of the year: Spring.
When the whole world goes crazy and stops hibernating.

Now in order to  get in shape wake up from the dark dreams
it is a good time to have some fun and short on cash does
make it a bit more challenging.

Yet I know just the place you can visit year round however right
now is one of the best times as the world and nature are slowly coming
back to life.

Het amsterdamse bos.


Ok so it is a city forest however it is one big ass city forest
with loads of things to discover.

The Amsterdamse Bos spans almost 1000 hectars (about 2 by 5 kilometers).
It is owned by the city of Amsterdam and situated within the local authorities of Amsterdam,
Amstelveen and Aalsmeer.


It is still the very same city woodland the designers of the original Boschplan had in mind in the 1920’s.
Under the motto ‘Five years work for a thousand men and tree planting in the Amsterdamse Bos began in 1934,
a task which provided work for 20.000 unemployed people during the crisis years.

The last tree of this forestation project wasn’t planted until 1967.
With its 137 km of footpaths, 51 km of cycle paths and 50 bridges,
the Amsterdamse Bos is one of the largest city parks of Europe.

It contains 150 indigenous species of trees and over 200 species of birds.
