The best picnic places in Amsterdam
Sunny days in combination with greenery, romantic canals, and idyllic streets, make Amsterdam one of the most enchanting cities. Do we need any more reasons to go out for a picnic in this city? We listed a few top places to go, just to help you out a little.
In the middle of all the buzz you find Sarphatipark. A smaller yet beautiful park in De Pijp offering plenty of greenery, a lake, a fountain, a playground and even a corner to do some sports. And since it is located in the middle of De Pijp, you are surrounded with bakeries, coffee-to-go options, takeaway lunch possibilities and the Albert Cuypmarkt for some fresh fruit juices and famous stroopwafels. In short: a picnic with possibilities.
A beautiful park for wanderers, couples, friends, families and sport fanatics. A large open space – it seems – made for picnic blankets accompanied by neat walking paths, lots of greenery and a beautiful fountain for some background music. Besides that, Oosterpark offers a tennis court and a playground.
Aan het IJ
Head to Amsterdam Central Station and take the ferry to Amsterdam North, and there you go. From here you get to enjoy a beautiful view, some fresh air and lots of sun.
Aan de Amstel
An Amsterdam experience cannot be called one without seeing the Amstel river. Besides that, it is a blissful place when taking a seat on one of the benches and just enjoy the traffic on the river.
