This is an amazing park. The first night we arrived in Amsterdam, we took a night-time stroll through Vondelpark, and felt very safe, even in the dark. There is a film museum, which we unfortunately did not have chance to visit, and tea houses/bars in the park.

We rented bicycles on one day of our holiday, and cycled for about an hour in this park alone - it's huge, beautiful, and there are sculptures all over to attract your gaze. We also noticed there is a BBQ area, that joggers and cyclists flock here to exercise, and the occasional smell of weed suggests a very relaxed atmosphere in general (much like the rest of this amazing city). It is an oasis of calm, not far from the hustle and bustle of life. Now easily one of my favourite spots in the world

A lovely park, away from the main tourist area so get a bike and cycle here. It's worth a cycle around and a picnic too. Some really nice lakes, houses and great for people watching.

Spent around 1-2 hours exploring Vondelpark by foot. A nice setting to set down a blanket and enjoy a picnic; especially by the water, and also to find a bench and simply sit and watch the world go by.
Dog friendly too so quite a few dogs roaming around. Would recommend renting a bike if tight on time.

Need a break from the museums, the coffeshops, the Red Light nuttiness? Take a break from your vacation and wander through the Vondelpark. It's urban park bliss. And if you want to go window shopping, or enjoy overheating your credit card, visit the luxe shops a block or two away from the park entrance.

Vondelpark has a relaxing, laid back atmosphere with all age groups seeming to enjoy different aspects of it. I spent around two hours walking around looking at the odd sculptures and simply enjoying being in a natural environment.
