What travellers are saying
- Very friendly family run farm, highly recommend a visit to see how clogs and cheese are made. The tour was really interesting even for my teenagers! The cheese tasting was the best bit, absolutely amazing. After the tour we was allowed to meet the cows and chickens. A really great experience.Written 15 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A must visit when wandering around the Bos, where the kids can wander freely amongst the goats, pigs and chickens, feeding them and brushing the goats. Also a good play area and maze to run around. Fab restaurant to enjoy local produce.Written 16 February 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very picturesque estate, well taken care of. Discovered it while biking to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel and was fascinated by the nature of the garden and its surroundings.

- Last month I took my granddaughter and her friends to Elsenhove which is very near to amstelveen. It's a great petting farm where children can see and play with farm animals. They can enter the enclosure of goats and play with them . There is donkey,the cows with calves, they can also see the huge pigs and the piglets . As you walk round the path, you come across the rabits . Children are very happy to see their activities.Chickens are there i n their enclosures . There are varieties of them. Some of them are really beautiful.
If gou are tired you can take your refreshments in the restaurant inside.
Children can enjoy snack .
There are some water bodies along the sides of the farm where plenty of waterbirds are swimming or preying. Just outside saw a grey heron meditating on the waterside.
2 yrs back when I went there we saw pea cocks. But may be they are hiding somewhere in that big farm . We could not see them . Ducks were honking. On the whole it was a pleasant experience.
If you can wait children can also feed the animals in the afternoon
This is educative and pleasant for both children and adult.Written 9 April 2019
- It’s a really nice part of Amsterdam with nice greenery and gardens and full of amazing infrastructures and shops. You can ride on bicycle and we had an amazing weather when visiting. It’s also not so expensive as other parts of town and the people around are really nice.Written 25 April 2019
- A good bike trip from Amsterdam (you can stop at the Kalfje for lunch, smoked eel!).
Mysterious, seemingly neglected, large and swampy which causes some coffins to sink over the centuries, with fascinating tours available.Written 19 September 2019
- Cycling along the Amstel river is always nice thing to do. We visited Oudekerk aan de Amstel on saturday afternoon. Unfortunately the church was not open, not sure because of the pandemic or other reason. But the chapel was open and a lady told us that the chapel is always open for the public.Written 9 March 2021
- The Amstelkerk is a Protestant church in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. The church is located on the west side of Ouderkerk, on the river Amstel. Usually a protestant church is open only on sundays so we only took some pictures and cycled further. By the way, it was nice to sit for a while at the back side of the church on the bench along the riverWritten 9 March 2021
- It is normal that a protestant church not open if there is no service. Everytime I passed this church, never saw it was open. I was really curious to know about all the small windows, how would it look like when you're inside. Sometimes I stopped and sit on the bench at the green square behind the park. In the fall, you will see clearly how many windows on the church wall except the front side. Well, maybe I should come on sundaysWritten 5 August 2019
- The "Nationaal Dachau-monument" consists of a sixty meter long road of Belgian bluestone; 2.35 meters wide, with a high row of trees on the left and right, 3.5 meters high tightly clipped yew hedge. The names of 500 concentration camps and satellite camps are carved in the street. So walking along the blue pavement one reads the names of the terrible places that are remembered here. It is simple but impressive.Written 4 July 2021
- Statuette in bronze by Dirk Stins (1914-1984). It is unknown (to me) what the author intended, or who commissioned the work, however the statuette is pretty in its execution and detail. Lovely little object to behold.Written 3 December 2019
- The Brandstapel is the work of Karel Appel from 1992 when he was in Tuscany. It was cast in bronze and placed it at the front of the Cobra Museum in 2001. The fountain is also part the artwork. It's typical CoBrA, quirkyWritten 30 August 2019
