Had great fun in this central park. It had snowed as well which made it scenic. Found a playground which the kids loved and also one of the restaurants halfway down (Vondelpark3?). Lovely food.

Thinking of taking a break from all of the wonderful museums that Amsterdam has to offer? Ideally located in an area surrounded by some of the most noteworthy and revered museums in the world is Vondelpark. You can spend an entire day here if you love being outdoors and have the appreciation of gorgeous parks that exist in the middle... More

Work off some of that cheese and cookies here, strolling the paths, dodging the bikes and the rain drops.

Was a nice walk. Fun too see many locals out with their dogs, and the ponds and trees gave it a nice atmosphere. Flower displays were a bit barren in the winter for obvious reasons.

We had a lovely stroll through here on a rainy February day. The park is popular with walkers and cyclists and is very lovely indeed - I would love to come back during the summer months to see it in bloom and have a picnic in the sunshine.

I had the opportunity to cross the park from Anne Frank's house to my hotel and during this walk I could see wonderful scenarios, such as beautiful lagoons reflections. It is a very nice place to walk and take some time to contemplation.

We had already seen the city centre and were in need of a quieter pace. We walked to Voldelpark, late afternoon. The sun was just setting as we arrived and the resident parakeets were roosting. I was not expecting to see parakeets let alone the amount there are there. It was a great experience and we were able to get... More

We hired some bicycles and were able to ride round the park, into the city and back again on a very sunny February day.

As the beating green heart of the city, Vondelpark is a must-do for a leisurely weekend stroll through the park. Better still, hire a bicycle and do a few laps!

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood 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.
