    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.

    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.

    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. Would definitely go back in spring

    Expanding with new stores. more outdoor restaurant seating as the lovely weather is promoting a visit on the patio. the parking is still a great plus as it is available from multiple directions.

    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.

    in addition to books, reading tables and a nice wash room, there is a cafe and a place to top up the snel card which is necessary to use the public transit.

    Start with a cup of coffee or tea in the Bakery Out near the little bridge in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. Did you know that Ouderkerk is the founding place of Amsterdam?
    After the stop go left over the bridge. First part till you pass the highway A9, aprox. 2 km, you enter the world of the oldest Polder in NL.
    Enjoy the ride!

    A nice park to have a picnic. I bicycled from Amsterdam to Ouderkerk. This was a great place to stop for a moment, have a picnic and eat something.

    The cream tea was good with a nice variety of sweet and savoury. We sat in the garden and it was very relaxing.
    We had booked a bouquet arranging workshop. We picked our own flowers. That was fine. But the workshop was not really instructive. Better to pick your own and take them home to arrange. Much cheaper.

    Stadstuinen Amstelveen are situated next to the main shopping mall of Amstelveen and are designed in a modern style with straight clean lines.There are some borders featuring perrenial plands and scrubs and a large lawn overlooked by low blocks of appartments and condominiums.Despite the central location few visitors mear peace and reflexion are possible.An avenue of Japanese cherry trees is usually in bloom in April;Rhododendrons flower early may.

    The farmer explained us, with a wide sense of humor, the tradional processes of the cheese making and clogs producing. He demostrated manufacturing of clog from a raw piece of wood. Very interesting
