Website: Buurtboerderij Ons Genoegen

This magical place near the center of Amsterdam is perfect for the nature lover and city dweller in one.

Neighborhood farm Ons Genoegen was built in 1880. The construction of the railway to Haarlem (1972) kept the farm isolated from the city of Amsterdam and was somewhat forgotten.

The venue was revitalized many years ago and this beautiful farm now hosts weddings and other events.

Years ago I photographed one of my first weddings here. I look back on this wedding location with great pleasure.
