I liked riding the bike in this park. Like all Amsterdam, it is very civilized. Didn't like it took less than 10 minutes to go around. But to be fair, i am comparing it with parks in Bucharest which stretch on tens of thousands square...More

We stayed in the Vondelpark hostel. The park looked beautiful and extremely pleasant to walk through. Very central with good tram and bus connections, as well as right next to the canal! Beautiful location and very picturesque

On one of our walks around the city our group stumbled upon this park. It was very relaxing to walk around, the park was very clean and well taken care of. A hidden city gem for sure

We lived in a hotel around the corner and enjoyed the quietness of the park at least once a day, also the neighbourhood is worth visiting (small shops, cafes, etc)

A beautiful park to bike round for a few laps, lovely to see so many people out and about walking their dogs etc. A range of Fitness classes were going on and it was lovely to see so many active people.

Vondelpark is a lovely park and well worth a walk through, even if only for a short while, as a way of getting out of the bustle of the city. The park is huge so unless you're on bike (which I would thoroughly recommend -...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
