Amsterdam Garden City

Enchanting Pavement Gardens

In the space that people use to stow the bins ‘at home’, Amsterdammers grow miniscule pavement gardens that'll have your eyes out on stalks!

You just need to venture outside the busy shopping areas which will take only a few minutes' walk - you'll feel all the better for doing so.

Leafy Walks in Amsterdam is a website of circular, round-trip walks in the centre and suburbs of Amsterdam. Our walks focus on the green areas of the city where it is quiet and leafy. The walks are aimed at young and old alike and intended for those who enjoy nature, trees, gardens, quietness, water, greenery and walking. There is no commercial agenda; our site is free to the user.

Scenic walks in the heart of Amsterdam, yet ‘far from the madding crowd’. Our green & leafy walks will take you to quiet districts, less than 5 or 10 minutes from Dam Square, the Leidseplein, Central Station, or the Rijksmuseum. We suggest friendly places for food and drinks. Longer walks farther out too.
