“The central park of Amsterdam east. Amsterdammers come here to picnic, relax or workout. Two other parks in the area that are certainly worth a visit: the Flevopark (check also our tip Distilleerderij ’t Nieuwe Diep) and the somewhat smaller, quieter Frankendael park. ”

“Tussen eind mei en eind oktober kun je op de plukroute verschillende soorten fruit, snackgroenten en bloemen plukken. Leer tijdens het plukken hoe de gewassen groeien en bekijk de hommels en bijen die rondzoemen. Speciaal voor iedereen tussen de 2 en 10 jaar is er in de Zelfpluktuin het Kabouterpad. Na het zelfplukken is het tijd om te ontspannen in de Theetuin in onze overdekte kas of buiten op het terras. Hier kan je genieten van onze zelfgemaakte fruitige lekkernijen.”
