“Rent a bike & go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

This place is wonderful. Its so peaceful. We started to walk around the park at the beginning but then we decided a bike would be the best option - it was amazing. Just riding along being able to take in all the surroundings was fantastic. Would recommend an hour or so here :) A picnic on a good day would be ideal also

“Get a bike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

It's a wonderful, large park! Rent a bike and ride around, or go jogging. Too large for just a walk.

“Great for an afternoon stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

My buddies and I stayed just a few blocks from here for a couple of days. We took a nice stroll through, settled down and threw the Frisbee around and hung out for a couple of hours. It was really temperate with plenty of small ponds, trail off-shoots, animals, etc. We even had a couple of folks promoting their band by cycling around in a push-cart type setup handing out cards which was nice. I'd highly recommend spending an afternoon enjoying your friends, the environment and Amsterdam in this park.

“So Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

When you enter the Vondelpark, you may feel like it is an ordinary park at the beginning. But after you spend a couple of hours there, you will see people reading, sunbathing, or just chilling around. You can make a bike tour, and have a rest after. Highly recommended to spend daytime in Amsterdam.

“Great ride through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Rent a bicycle for a ride around town and go through this park. Bring bread for the birds, maybe a blanket to sit on... Even just riding through is a real joy. Practicing your riding skills here is a good idea
