Amsterdam's most famous park was designed and built in 1850 and today is a popular place for tourists and residents who can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, jogging and picnicking.
Went in September when the weather was nice so sat in the park to eat our lunch. It was full of people also sitting on the grass so had a nice atmosphere. There was a slight problem with a drunk homeless man in the park...More
Well, to start with, I am not sure why Vondelpark has been rated this high in TripAdvisor. It is just an ordinary park - yes, a huge one but still ordinary. There isn't any attractive (or planned) landscaping or flower arrangements to attract tourists. I...More
Not the best of weather to wander through a park when I was there but I would imagine this lovely place would be even lovelier in sunshine. People walking, running and cycling in every direction, you do need your wits about you but the buildings...More
The park is gorgeous!! Highly recommend just walking around and seeing the water, trees, flowers, etc.
a lot of people having picnics and enjoying the views as well. There is a children’s playground as well.
We actually stumbled upon it while exploring the city but well worth a visit.
It’s nice to take an hour or two to just step back from all the business of Amsterdam and just take a wonder through the park.
I would definitely recommend stopping...More
We spent a lovely afternoon wandering slowly through the park on a grey and cold day. The grand homes sitting around the edge of the park are worth studying. We wandered out of the park into some side streets which eventually bought us into a...More
We didn't have time to walk the entire park so found somewhere to sit as soon as we entered through the gates and just absorbed a little of the atmosphere. Very well maintained park, great for a stroll!
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
destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.

Hi, on Google maps it gives buses 347 and 357 every 5 mins from Centraal Station or, trams 1, 2 & 5. Be careful when walking along the paths in the park, as you'll be bombarded by bike riders, skate boarders and... More
Hi, on Google maps it gives buses 347 and 357 every 5 mins from Centraal Station or, trams 1, 2 & 5. Be careful when walking along the paths in the park, as you'll be bombarded by bike riders, skate boarders and joggers-they take no prisoners! We were there 2 Saturday's ago so it's probably busier at the weekend. Good luck!
