Suburban • Green space • Art museums
Amstelveen offers all the charm of a small town just a short train or pleasant bike ride from downtown Amsterdam. Ramble around Amsterdamse Bos Park to enjoy the local fauna and flora, or savor contemporary art exhibits at the two resident modern art museums. Lots of green space provides a country feel, but this area is not the known for its nightlife or entertainment. Combat boredom with a boat ride or shopping at the suburb's large mall.
