A Park full of movement and history. You can do sports out there, sit down on the nice grass and enjoying a nice piece of wafels, or you can visit some nice museums out there around this nice and peaceful Park.

One can spend hours just walking around in the park and enjoying it. But it is also very popular for joggers. It is a very impressive park!

It's a large park with plenty of green space to lounge around on a hot summer day. It's big enough to escape away from the city noises if you find the right spot.
