  • There are no other words if not spectacular!! If you visit this park is just to see the bulb and flower species here are all in their most beautiful specimens, rari e particolari. The Park is kept there are several food outlets and free wifi. From Schiphol Airport can be reached by a bus. Logically also from Amsterdam! It pays to take tickets combo to avoid lines at the Park. Don't expect to find anything but flowers, flowers and beautiful flowers.

  • This garden is very nice to walk around, relax, picnic, relax and feel the peace in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the big city. We as a couple exploit it by bike, because it is really great! Also allows the tourists watch the habits of Dutch residents. On weekends it fills the local people who access to this garden to make large picnics and meetings between friends and at the same time soaking up the Sun (when there are, of course!).

  • A food air at the heart of the city. When it's hot, all Amsterdam is found in the Park. Ideal for a walk or a jog

  • 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!)
