Information in English – Het Amsterdamse Bostheater - stralend middelpunt van de zomer

Summer program of the Bostheater

During the summer, the Bostheater in the Amsterdamse Bos offers a variety of theatre plays, live concerts and children’s theatre plays. Every year, the Bostheater and a renowned Dutch theatre company produce a new theatre play, based on a well-known classical story or play. These are transformed and exclusively performed on the big stage of the Bostheater. This season, we present The Three Musketeers, in co-production with theatre company De Warme Winkel.

This open air theatre is a great escape from the busy city centre and just a 15-minute bike ride from Station Amsterdam Zuid. You will find yourself in the middle of a beautiful forest, where you can enjoy performances, live music and cultural events. Our concerts are accessible for a non-Dutch speaking audience. The theatre shows are in Dutch, but on Thursdays English subtitles are available.

The theatre has its own bar and restaurant, and you can dine at the restaurant prior to the show. It is also possible to order a picnic basket for two persons, and it is allowed to bring your own consumptions to the theatre performances. Note that this is not allowed during concert nights, but on these evenings there are several food trucks and the bar will be open. It is also possible to order a picnic basket.

The address of the Bostheater is: De Duizendmeterweg 7, 1182 DC Amstelveen.
It is easy accessibly by car (free parking) and bike. Unfortunately the public transport connection to the theatre is inadequate (it’s a 40 minute walk from the nearest busstop).


  • When you want to buy a ticket and it says ‘uitverkocht’ this means that it is sold out.
  • In case of very bad weather performances will be canceled, you will receive an email with a code that allows you to make a reservation for another evening. Concerts will go on in most cases, as well as kids theatre plays, for the latter we usually find another location in the theatre with a roof.
  • It’s possible that during the concerts and performances photo’s, film and audio recordings are being made, and it is also possible that audience will be filmed or recorded. If you are present during a performance or concert, you automatically agree to this. Images, film and other recordings can be published or used in campaigns.
