The Vondelpark is the largest park of the city, situated close to the Leidseplein and the big museums.
The park is always alive with skaters, joggers and all sorts of street performers.
In the summer there are concerts and festivals.
There are several bars in the park, all with their own outside terrace.
All in all a very pleasant place to spend a lazy sunny afternoon.
At the Vondelpark, designed and lay out in 1850, you will find a magnificent piece of nature in the middle of the inner part of the town. The park reaches out from “het Leidseplein” till the “Amstelveenseweg”.
It is a beautiful place for a picnic, but also for a trip on your skeelers. During the summer there is always something going on, on stage ….
The main entrance is at “de Stadhouderskade”.

Here it is, as if you really need a map to wander around a nice relaxing park. But just incase you do, this is it.
The Vondelpark lies to the South West of the city. Here you can enjoy a relaxing walk or jog. It is named after Dutch playwright Joost van den Vondel.
If you make your way to the Museum quarter, make an effort to take a stroll through the Vondelpark. This provided us with a lovely escape from the crowds and the atmosphere was very romantic.
