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

Summer program of the Bostheater

The Amsterdamse Bostheater is open from July 1st to September 6th. During the summer, we present live theatre performances, modern dance and spoken word by renowned Dutch companies and impressive artists. The open air theatre is a great escape from the busy Amsterdam city centre and just a 15-minute bike ride from Station Amsterdam Zuid. We have variety of shows that are also interesting for our non-Dutch speaking audience.

Every summer, we also present a great variety of theatre plays for children. Kids are encouraged to use their imagination and they don’t need many words to feel the excitement. We present well-known stories, like the fairy-tales Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.



It is not permitted to bring your own food and beverages. In previous years, our audience could bring their own drinks and foods, but we had to change our policy due to the outbreak of the covid-19. You can still order a picknickbox online and we serve also snacks at the bar.



The address of the Bostheater is: De Duizendmeterweg 7, 1182 DC Amstelveen.

The Bostheater is easy accessibly by car (free parking). Unfortunately, the public transport connection to the theatre is inadequate (it’s a 40 minute walk from the nearest bus stop).

Although the Bostheater seems a bit far away from the habited world (we don’t even have phone or internet reception), it’s actually quite close to the city. It will take you only 15 minutes to get to the open air theatre from Amsterdam Zuid. The Amsterdam city centre (Leidseplein) is around 25 minutes away. If you don’t have bike, rent an OV-fiets from the National Railway at Station Amsterdam Zuid.
