Camp surrounded by the fields, lakes and forests of a landscaped park on the outskirts of Amsterdam. A holiday at Citycamping Het Amsterdamse Bos is a unique opportunity to pair a city break in a vibrant capital with an escape to the serenity of nature.
Three times the size of New York’s Central Park, The Amsterdam Forest (Amsterdamse Bos) is one of the biggest urban parks in Europe. This huge expanse of manicured wilderness is full of secrets and surprises. Explore, and you’ll find a rowing course, a manmade hill, swimming ponds and streams, a goat farm, an open-air theatre and roaming herds of shaggy highland cattle. Visitors are spoilt for choice by its wonderful selection of walking and cycling trails.
Travel a short distance and you’ll find yourself a world away in the bustling heart of Amsterdam. The two best ways to get there are by metro – the closest station is within walking distance of the campsite – and by bike. The cycle path that leads into the city can be joined directly from the campsite. A ride along it is a wonderful way to experience the sights, scents and sounds of the forest and the city.
Amsterdam is a capital of picturesque canals and tall gabled buildings. The city’s elegance and its grand spires and facades are a legacy of the wealth that flowed into its port during the 17th century Dutch Golden Age. Today, Amsterdam is world-renowned for its museums, galleries, and nightlife.
Accommodation at Citycamping Het Amsterdamse Bos ranges from chalets and holiday caravans to log cabins and glamping pods. Tents and tourers are welcome too.
Onsite, your everyday needs are provided for by a shop, a laundrette, well-maintained wash facilities and free wifi. Kids can burn off steam at the playground. Bikes can be rented from the reception.
And don’t worry if you can't speak Dutch – English is one of Citycamping Het Amsterdamse Bos’s spoken languages.
