“Nice park but not an attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This is definitely a very nice place to take a walk or just to sit outside, though I wouldn't call it a "must see" in Amsterdam. There isn't too much to see.

“Rent a bike and ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We absolutely love this park. It's a big, beautiful, bohemian gem in the heart of the city. We had our bikes and rode though the park, stopping to relax, people watch and just take in the local atmosphere. Here you will see people of all ages playing sports, jogging, roller skating, having picnics and just relaxing and enjoying the simple things in life. There is a lake as well as cafes scattered throughout the park. This is a must see/must do during a trip to Amsterdam.

“A beautiful park near the Museum District”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

A good central park to get away from it all. There was a nice little bar/cafe to enjoy a glass of wine or tea close to the entrance.

“Koningsdag Crush”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

I had the pleasure of spending an hour or so on Vondelpark during King's Day; this is probably one of the vastest and impeccably kept public spaces I've visit.

The Park was crammed with visitors and locals (selling pretty much all of their unwanted junk), as well as Musicians and other vendors, which i guess sort of kills the point of visiting Vondelpark to take on all it has to offerz
