  • This park is beautiful and open. Great for a morning walk or to walk off the lunch. Highly recommend it to everyone traveling to Amsterdam.
  • It is a busy park with all walks and cycles of life passing by. Favourite thing was being with my partner and people watching. Including the woman who was kitted out entirely in knitting and crochet, and the bike with the dog carrier.
  • Nice park but pretty much full of people! If you don't mind much going on you can find a nice spot on the grass in this park - otherwise just go further outside of Amsterdam where no tourists are :)
  • Take a short stroll around the park. Either cycling by or walking through the this amazing park makes you relaxed. During the summer time, take your food and go to Vondelpark for picnic
  • Beautiful park in the centre of Amsterdam. Beautiful houses all around it, and lovely ponds, grass and lots of trees. Very busy in the summer, but a great place to have a walk around, enjoy the sun, watching people, picnic and more activities.
