Amsterdam's most famous park. You can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, jogging and picnicking.There is a self-service coffee house were you can eat and drink by the pond. If you are lucky you may watch a concert in the theatre.

Hire bicycles- go for the hand break option, unless you have Dutch blood and can operate the pedal break! This is a wonderful place to relax and become proficient on this essential mode of transport. You cannot possibly leave the Netherlands without cycling around most...More

We went to Amsterdam for a weekend with my husband and 2.5 year old son and we visited Vondelpark on our first day. It's a great place to get away from the busy streets while still saying central. It has great cafes (one of them...More

Loved the greenery and everything about it. You'll see joggers and other people doing all kind of activity. Buy a map for two euro to support the park!

I visited and it wasn't as I expected. The park is nice but not as big as I thought it would be. It's nice to go and relax a bit. I rented a bike as well which I highly reccomend.

We stayed in an apartment very close to Vondelpark and planned to go for a run and do a workout in the park one day. We were surprised by the sheer amount of people that were hanging out in the park early on a Friday...More

Pretty park ideal for cycling if you don't want to try your luck cycling in the city! Portable toilets spread throughout the park. Information desk was useful.

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

No worries about finding coffee, but the crowds could be a problem. Outside the park there are other places that might work for you.
