Great combination of water and swamp-like nature.

On the website of the nearby Thijssepark (see below) a 1.5-2 h walk though the Thijssepark, De Braak and the Landwehrpark is described in Dutch. However, you can also find a map there that might useful.

Some more info, in Dutch, can be found here: http://www.ivn-amstelveen.nl/

There are several entrances to the park:

Close to Amsterdamseweg 220, between the houses Amsterdamseweg 252-244 and through the Prinsesselaan.

The park can be reached with bus 166 (stop "Oude/Nieuwe Karselaan from direction Amstelveen and stop "Prins Bernhardlaan" from direction Amsterdam).

Close to the park "De Braak" one of the four intact banning poles ("banpalen" in Dutch) of Amsterdam can be found. See my tip on that if you are interested.
