AMR 2017: Best Day Out (Outdoors) For Families

The Amsterdam Mamas Recommend awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services in the city for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.

Presenting the winner of the category Best Day Out (Outdoors) For Families in or around Amsterdam:

Amsterdamse Bos

The Amsterdamse Bos is a vast, man-made, leafy park, a mere 20 minute bike ride from the Rijksmuseum. There is plenty to see and do in the Bos – walking, horse riding, visiting the goat farm, biking, picnicking, canoeing, swimming, taking a guided walking tour or a boat ride with a forester, and of course the Blossom Park is well worth a visit in April. Recently, the Amsterdamse Bos received its fifth certificate of excellence in a row from Tripadvisor, which puts its in their hall of fame. Entrance and parking are free of charge.


The Runners-up were:

ARTIS – Amsterdam Royal Zoo

Amsterdamse Bos – Geitenboerderij

Amersfoort Zoo


Look for the Mamas Recommend window sticker, certificate, or online logo around the city, and you’ll be sure that the business or service you are using is tried and trusted by the Amsterdam Mamas community!
