“Best place on Queen's Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

This was my favorite part of Queen's Day. The canals with boats and crowds are fun, but Vondelpark was beautiful and friendly. There were many different snacks to eat for very little money, lots of adorable Dutch children selling juice, fruits, or even manicures, grass to sit on and relax, and just amazing people watching.

“Great location to spend a hot summer day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The Netherlands do not have many hot summer days in a year, but when you are around in Amsterdam and it happens to be such a hot day this would be the place to spend at least a couple of hours in. Great for walking and relaxing. People just bring their towels along like on the beach, but then chill out in the grass. Great experience.

“great for a run when visiting the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

felt safe running as a single female, beware of the manic cyclists though! Lovely and flat and one loop of the park is about 5k.
