The area
Neighbourhood: 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 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.

We walked the length of the park around 7:00 am and were amazed at how many walkers and flying bicyclists were about. I was a little shocked at the amount of trash lying about towards the mid/south end of the park. We picked up a little.

We rented bikes nearby and went for a leisurely ride around Vondelpark on a sunny afternoon. Lots of people out and about enjoying the nice weather. Lovely, large park with plenty of biking and walking paths, places for picnics and relaxing, some little restaurants and more.

Lovely park for a stroll and just relaxing. We visited on a very hot day and to be able to escape to the park was a life saver!

I always look for a hotel near Vondelpark as it is a nice park to walk and run in. I also sometimes just walk through to get from one side of town to the other.

Some great establishments accompanied by some great quiet spots in the middle of the crowd. The open theater in the weekends is a nice thing to check out, with some musical talent on occasion!

Just steps from the bustling canal district, this oasis is truly a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. A stroll on a lovely summer weekend reveals the citizens of Amsterdam enjoying this lovely urban green space.
