We walked around the whole park on a lovely crisp, sunny December day and it was beautiful. The pond had frozen over and children and adults alike were skimming broken ice across it. There are plenty of runners and cyclists amongst walkers alike. We stopped for a coffee at the MelkHuis which was a lovely place with sandwiches and cakes... More

This is a nice park but in the winter I found it much more fun to bike than walk. It's easily accessible near the museum quarter. I walked a bit one day but went back with a bike and really covered some ground. It's a good place to ride a bike in Amsterdam if you're hesitant to ride on the... More

My boyfriend and I visited Vondelpark on our final day in Amsterdam after a weekend of partying at Amsterdam Music Festival. It was a lovely autumn afternoon and the park was so breathtakingly beautiful. We ended up sitting on a bench for hours just reflecting and taking it all in. Would highly recommend as a great place to finish off... More

With various lakes and walkways, it resembles a smaller central park from New York. It is situated very close to the Museum Square, and as a result, can be easily reached via walking. It is a nice place to relax, especially in the summer months.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
