The Amsterdamse Bos attracts millions of visitors every year. As long as everyone is respectful to nature and other people, the Bos has plenty of space for everyone. However, as a visitor to the Amsterdamse Bos you are asked to follow certain rules. Our foresters ensure that these rules are upheld. For your convenience, we have listed them below:
- Events with more than 30 people must be reported in advance.
- Waste must be deposited into the bins.
- Dog owners must obey the signs with off-leash and on-leash regulations.
- Open fires, including charcoal fires, are prohibited. A charcoal barbecue is allowed, provided that it is not in direct contact with trees or bushes (at least five meters distance) and placed on a stand higher than 50 cm to avoid damage to the grass.
- Do not feed the Scottish Highlanders.
- Cars are not allowed, except on the main roads.
- Camping outside of the campground is forbidden.
- Nudism is not allowed.
