We walked one afternoon and it was lovely! Saw the ducks and ponds and people enjoying the lovely flower gardens. Nice to relax and spend some time enjoying the outdoors after spending time visiting museums.

One of the nicest parks I’ve been to! Lovely on a summers day and great place to relax! It’s easy to get to from the Rijksmuseum/ Van Gogh museum. Highly recommended

On a sunny day in Amsterdam, everyone is here in Vondel Park. It is great to join the locals and wander the lanes, sit on the lawn, and have a drink in the cafe.

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
