It’s definitely a place that’s hidden from the Amsterdam tourists, even though it’s so close to the city: Amstelland.
If you follow the Amsterdam river – the Amstel – to the south, you suddenly find yourself surrounded by nature.
You hear the sound of birds, and even though it’s close to the city and the airport Schiphol, you can feel the quietness.
For the Province of North Holland I made this short video to give people an idea of the beauty of the countryside just a bit south from Amsterdam. It not a coincidence this area is called Mooi Amstelland, Dutch for beautiful Amstel land.
