Het Twiske in Amsterdam
Het Twiske is a fantastic place to spend a day, or even two, with friends, family, or that special someone in your life. The park has a very large recreation area, and boasts some stellar outdoor entertainment possibilities. It is accessible via foot, bicycle, and car, with parking at a price of €4 per day, or €1 per hour. If you are new to the park, you should stop by the visitor’s center for advice about what activities are offered that day.
Het Twiske has several winding bike paths, as well as more than a few small lakes for fishing and boating. The beautiful landscapes alone are reason enough to visit, as there are numerous photo opportunities, including a number of aged, yet well-preserved windmills.
If you take a stroll through the fields, you will pass by animals including cows, sheep, and goats. Horseback riding is a common activity at Het Twiske, and if you like, you may rent a boat from the local harbor and catch fish in one of the lakes. Afterward, you might also want to relax and have a barbeque on one of the small beaches the park has to offer. It is hard to imagine having any worries during a day at Het Twiske!
