Named after a dutch poet.
Lovely place to wonder around when it's warm and you want to get away from the noise of the street and sit down somewhere to have a cup of tea, coffee or something else.
Can get crowded in the summer especially on Sunday
Great place to meet people.
The park has an open-air theater. Famous Dutch artists have performed here.
You can skate, ride a bike, walk, play guitar, or just lie down and listen and watch.
Relax is the key-word.
The Vondelpark is Amsterdam's most famous park. It was designed and built around the year 1850.
The park is very popular with tourists who can enjoy the quit in the city, for people with little children (many playgrounds and animals), joggers, cyclists and skeelers.
On the Overtoom side one can find the Film museum, where you can watch 'the other' movies and can enjoy a nice breakfast in summer, outside.
In the high season the Music Theater gives many performances of local and international artists, free of charge! This gives the park it's special atmosphere. The well known Concertgebouworkest gives every year an 'open air' concert in the park, which attracts hundreds of people.
Oh, if you visit the park, don't be surprised by the many tropical birds -like grasshoppers and parrots- who live freely in the park!!
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”.

The Vondelpark is a great place to be! Especially in the summer. Every sunday afternoon there is a concert.(only in the summer time) Free entrance and always a good atmosphere. There is the Film museum where they show great old movies and the restaurant/cafe is very popular by Amsterdam people. It is always busy there.
I have seen groups of meditationers, and other exercisers in the Vondelpark at all hours of the day----check by and see if you can join a group or just do your own routine-----
A very nice English-style parc in the heart of the city. Ideal to go for a saunter in a natural environment.
You will see trees & parks ewverywehre in Holland. Thet is the only way to preserve a city, village or town. Parks where to sit & walk.
If you are in Amsterdam try and make a visit to Vondelpark.
There are a lot of nice flowers, statues and ponds. It is a nice place to visit to get away from all that city life.
