From there we will have a lovely and easy Sunday walk towards the Goat Farm, of course, we will take small paths and discover this and that on our trip to the organic Goatfarm Ridammerhoeve, which is situated in the middle of the Amsterdam Forest.

A 1.25 x 3.1-mile city-owned park, the Amsterdamse Bos unfurls before its visitors a panoply of sweeping forests and wooded areas, 85 miles of walking paths, 32 miles of bike trails, 50 bridges, and one manmade mountain, called De Heuvel, for winter snow fun.

The "woodsy" of the Amsterdamse Bos was a calculated undertaking originally spearheaded in the Protected content . Architects of the park's Boschplan envisioned thousands of trees covering its grounds, enhancing the beauty of surrounding Amsterdam, Amstelveen, and Aalsmeer, and allowing citizens a nearby escape from daily urban life. In Protected content , tree planting proposals both moved from paper to soil and gave 20,000 unemployed Dutch work during a period of economic crisis for the country. The project spanned 23 years, with the last tree taking root in Protected content . Today, Protected content species of trees and over Protected content of birds call the Amsterdamse Bos home.
