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

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 cut through this park several times during the course of our stay. We also had a little picnic one day and enjoyed every bit of it -the scenery and the food-.

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!

A very peaceful place to walk and enjoy the joyous musicals of nature. It is not big , but serves as a break from the city life.

The park is much larger than you think and than it looks on a city map. You can wander for hours and keep finding peaceful and quiet spots. Recommended.

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

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
