Houseboat with four bicycles and a free parking place on perhaps the best location in Amsterdam
In the Amstel river you can find a houseboat. From this trusty ship you have an amazing view over the Amstel. Nearby a classic Dutch mill. Close to the mill is also a nice statue of the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt.
Within a 15 minute bicycle ride along the Amstel, you are already in the heart of Amsterdam. If you love to take a walk, you explore the green fields or take a walk down the river.
You could say this location has the best of both worlds. In the midst of nature but still in walking distance of Amsterdam. The modern and luxurious mall “Groot Gelderland plein” is 1500 metres (almost 1 mile) away from the boat, which is traversable by foot, bicycle or the bus 62. About 700 metres (1/2 mile) away you can find a supermarket (“Jumbo”). As said earlier there is a close by called “Amstelpark”, where you can take a walk and enjoy the various gardens. If you’re a fan of golf, you can find a golf course within 3 minutes of walking which is free to use. If you love horseback riding, there are some stables nearby. For the cheese lovers there is an authentic cheese farm in the area, where you can see how cheese is made and they sell all kinds of cheese which would make tasty souvenir. If you don’t feel like cooking there is the restaurant “Kalfje” 50 metres away from the boat, where you can sit outside by the water with a lovely view, and the food is also quite good. If you cycle 15 minutes to the south you can also find more restaurants by the water in the picturesque town called “Ouderkerk aan de Amstel”.
