AMR Awards 2018: Best Children's Party Location

The Amsterdam Mamas Recommends Awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services, for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.

Presenting the winner of the category Best Children’s Party Location in Amsterdam:

Amsterdamse Bos    

The Amsterdamse Bos has won the Amsterdam Mamas ‘Best Of’ award four times and recently has been included in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame. A beautiful haven for some leafy green to break up the urban edge, the Amsterdamse Bos is a great destination for children’s parties any time of year.  There are many party options within the Bos, including treasure hunts and nature excursions. You can check out the goat farm, Geitenboerderij Ridammerhoeve, and have traditional pancakes at Pannenkoekenboerderij Meerzicht. The Fun Forest climbing park and Mini Captain boat trips offer diverse opportunities to celebrate the perfect birthday parties.
