Vondelpark sits in the heart of Amsterdam and is a beautiful park. It isn't too big or overwhelming which I think is perfect for an easy afternoon stroll. Amsterdam is a pretty busy city so I highly recommend spending some quiet time in this park.

There are gradual slopes but no hills. It is easy to ride bikes, jog or walk on the paths. There are lots of people around for people watching.

Walked through this beautiful park, plenty of people playing with their dogs, riding bikes and running. Unfortunately it was very cold so we didn't spend too much time, but in the right weather it would be a nice diversion from shopping and museum hopping.

Found when walking around the city this is a clean an pleasant park. Given the time of year it was cold so some of the streams were part frozen. The park is a fair size so took ~1.5 hours to walk around.

A lovely place to get away from the busy streets of Amsterdam, take in the impressive gardens and have a nice stroll around. Ideal to take a paper or book and have a bite to eat. Always better on a nice day, needless to say.

Lovely cycle around Sunday afternoon, great way to get rid of a hangover. Better when the sun is out though

A beautiful park. An afternoon stroll through it must for any trip to Amsterdam. There are a few nice little restaurants to grab lunch and a beer as well.

Visited this park in Amsterdam in March. Nice to have somewhere that you can walk in a big city which reminds you of England. There is a lake in the middle and has paths for walkers and cyclists. There is also an area for people...More

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
