The enchanted heemparks of Amstelveen

A walk through the heemparks De Braak, Dr. Koos Landwehrpark and Dr. Jac. P. Thijssepark

Amstelveen’s heemparks are islands of peace and wonder, where plants and herbs that are indigenous to the Netherlands are shown in enchanting compositions. Wander in a typical Dutch polder landscape with pollard willows and reed lands in De Braak; repose in the romantic ‘garden rooms’ in the Dr. Jac P. Thijssepark, where rare varieties such as Marsh St. John’s Wort, Cranberry and Dwarf Cornel once again exhibit their fragile beauty; and make the most of your opportunity to admire the very rare Molinia meadows in the Dr. Koos Landwehrpark that were part of the eastern farmlands in days gone by. Experience the beauty of Dutch flora in any season during your stroll in these delightful parks.
