The Schinkelbos is part of the area named Groene AS, an important ecological connecting route. The Schinkelbos has its own atmosphere with unique plants and animals. Very special animals even, such as the green woodpecker, the grass snake, and the Scottish highlander.


You can park your car in the parking lot near the Renaissance Hotel, on the southern edge of Amsterdamse Bos. Then walk straight through the forest to the beautiful windmill De Zwarte Ruiter and the Oosterbad. After this, you turn around, back towards the parking lot. This walking route is about 6 kilometers.
