A great place to relax and have a picnic is in Rembrandt Park in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This park was named after one of Holland’s most famous artists, Rembrandt van Rijn. The Postjesweg divides the park in two and there are many lakes and fields to enjoy. Visitors to the park can enjoy sculptures, the oldest petting zoo in the city and a great playground for children.
Here you’ll find The Uylenberg which originated in 1973. It is a petting zoo with peacocks, horses, pigs and other animals.
