    Wester Amstel is a Golden Age country estate on the outskirts of Amsterdam. It was established in 1662 by Nicolaas Pancras, mayor of Amsterdam, as the perfect country getaway.

    Great place worth visiting as a small 1-2 hour activity just outside the busy center of Amsterdam. You can get there easily by car, bicycle or public transport (with a little walk along the peaceful Amstel river)
