At least two times a week riding my bike passing this monument. It is second oldest monument in Amsterdam after the Rembrandt monument on Rembrandt square. It's quite a beautiful artwork of Louis Royer from 1867. The statue of Joost van den Vondel was on a high square base with four muses sitting on each corner of the base. What strikking about this monument is the flowers that surrounded the monument. Each season has its seasonal flowers. In the spring it would be filled with tulips. At this moment is lack of flowers because of the heat wave the last couple weeks and in august will be filled with other summer flowers.

One of the interesting things to see at Vondelpark is the large monument to 17th-century Dutch playwright Joost van den Vondel.

This monument is the work of Dutch sculptor Louis Royer (1867) who also created the Rembrandt statue at Rembrandt Square. Here you find a bronze statue of a middle-aged Vondel, seated with a book in one hand and a pen in the other.

The statue is atop a decorative plinth that was created by important 19th-century Dutch architect, Pierre Cuypers and includes gold engravings and four angels. There is a large circular base that is surrounded by flower beds.

The monument is a nice depiction of Vondel for whom the park was later named and is worth making time to see if you plan to visit the northeast area of Vondelpark.
