The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

I always look for a hotel near Vondelpark as it is a nice park to walk and run in. I also sometimes just walk through to get from one side of town to the other.

Some great establishments accompanied by some great quiet spots in the middle of the crowd. The open theater in the weekends is a nice thing to check out, with some musical talent on occasion!

Just steps from the bustling canal district, this oasis is truly a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. A stroll on a lovely summer weekend reveals the citizens of Amsterdam enjoying this lovely urban green space.

Vondelpark was a 5 minute walk from my hotel, so I went there a few times during my trip to Amsterdam. The second time I biked through it, after renting a bike from my hotel. It's a big long park, so I recommend biking it. To me the scenery was beautiful, but it wasn't that varied. It all kinda reminded me of Sheep Meadow in Central Park, with some fountains here and there. There aren't a lot of must see sights that jumped out at me, just a lot of pretty fields and greenery and lakes and trees. Which is great, too. It's a very clean and peaceful place, full of walkers, joggers, bikers, people doing outdoor classes of various types, etc. etc. Everyone seemed happy and calm, and unlike most of the major parks in the US where I'm from, I saw no sketchy people or anyone trying to make a buck somehow. Definitely worth a visit if you're nearby.
