We thought Vondelpar,k was very ordinary. Best feature was the tulip display in the centre near the (small) pond. The whole place was full of young people lying around in the sun smoking ??? . We visited on a Thursday so one could assume that many of those lying around were unemployed. No wonder our hotel was full of other young people from outside Holland who had found it easy to get jobs. Vondelpark seemed to be a meeting place for rappers playing very loud music, or am I just an old fart?

Vondelpark is the ideal place to ride a bike in Amsterdam. It's quite big, so by foot you won't probably be able to see everything. It's a great place for picnics or even just to lay down on the grass and relax. I trully recommend it!

What a clean and very large park. Easy to walk around in but I would suggest renting a bike. Tons of bikers, walkers and joggers.

One of the best tours we were ever on. Highly recommended. Pavilions were very well done. Especially the Orange pavilion with the emphasis on Van Gough.
