  • Vondelpark is a great place to visit if you love doing long walks along the nature, apart from being a really beautiful park! 
  • Laidback and good atmosphere, a lot of people hanging out in the sun drinking beer, smoking and having picnics. 
  • Perfect for walking and if sit down take a little ray of sunshine between two stages of the day :)

  • Absolute paradise in the Summer. Very well maintained with nice fountains and many modern sculptures dotted around. There are a couple of nice places to eat also and the open air theater in the centre has a lot of interesting things going on for free as well as a bar. There's also a nice little play park for families with a paddling pool.
  • Fantastic place to visit, a must see in Amsterdam. Plenty of room to cycle, walk, run, exercise or picnic. Enjoy one of the many summer time concerts and shows that are there or enjoy a drink at one of the cafes and bars. Have a peek at the lost and found peg area near the info centre at the upper city end of the park. There are always interesting things to be seen!
  • Big and clean park. Great if you wanna see the locals chill or just chill yourself. There are a few small diners but they are expensive as hell, so you better bring your own food.
  • Beautiful park with cafes that service nice refreshments. On a sunny day it is like heaven on earth. A must visit for any Amsterdam visitor and lots of nice shops around the area.
  • So many lovely paths to bike and grassy places to sit. Bring a blanket and park yourself wherever, people-watch, and forget for a while that you're in the middle of a city. During the summer, they have a a free open-air theater that hosts a variety of music and theater events. (Also, generally teeming with Pokemon!)
