Trees of Amsterdam Walk

(4.6 miles/ 7.5 kilometres)
Here's quite a leafy walk to acquaint you with some Amsterdam trees. There are too many interesting trees to include in one walk, but this will be a good intro. It's a substantial distance (4.6 miles/7.5 km) but you can cut it shorter if you've had enough.

You'll be able to admire some fine Amsterdam architecture along the way: the Rijksmuseum, canal houses, churches, Carré Theatre, Skinny Bridge, Hermitage Museum, Hortus Botanical Garden buildings, Portuguese Synagogue, University buildings… and lots more.

Begin wherever you like but the monumental plane trees near the Leidseplein (Leidse Bosje) might be a good spot. Continue in an anti-clockwise direction, towards the Rijksmuseum and follow the route from there. You'll encounter lots of plane trees, a huge poplar, Caucasian wingnut, elms, Chinese scholar tree, catalpa, copper beech and lots more.
