  • If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city go to this beautiful tranquil park. A lot of people sitting on the grass having a drink and a chat. There is a lake, a rose garden, a caffeteria...  more »
  • Very nice and cared for, definitely a very relaxing, between characteristic plants, large lawns and ponds, a great place to go to look for a bit of quiet or just to drink a beer or take a walk.

  • Its very nice to sit in the park and enjoy a drink or some snacks. Its big enough that even with so so so many tourists it never seems too full. Running or going for a nice walk is always possible!!
  • Visited this park twice during my stay in Amsterdam. Has a great balance of wild nature and maintained garden. The rose garden hidden in the central part of the park was beautiful, as well as fountains in the numerous ponds of the park. Stay alert of the birds in the garden though as they sense any food-related activity and will follow you from there on. :D Highly recommend to visit for a nice walk, running, bicycling or a picnic!
  • Awesome park to go spend an afternoon, pool for small kids, running, cycling. Will definitely get crowded on a sunny day, people will bring tents, do barbecues, wine and cups, even inflatable chairs. Has many entries and seems hidden, doesn't become immediately clear how big it is.
  • Amazing to cycle through and there's plenty of grass and benches to sit on. Also cycled through at midnight on a weekday and there were lots of people around. Very nice atmosphere, so much wildlife. Definitely a place to visit .
  • The best park in the world!! at night i advice people to take a little extra care in regards of safety, but overall its not that bad. On a warm summer day, you'll be amazed how crowded the park can be! absolute recommendation to visit the Vondelpark!
