Vondelpark is like New York City's Central Park - only cleaner and bigger. My friends and I went tanning by a pond on a sunny day, followed by dinner at a nice restaurant and a leisurely bike ride around the paths. There are many, many things you can do here!

Nice family area that attracts many different people from young to old. Lots of places to be alone or with others. Restaurants in area were nice but expensive.

Lovely, large park with ponds, trees, stuff and things, plus room to kip under a tree to get your breath back if needed. Safe and great atmosphere. Go chill

Vondelpark on a beautiful day is.....beautiful! Definitely devote the time to take a leisurely stroll through the park to see the beauty of an inner city park that attracts the people, bikers, dogs, geese, ducks, etc.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood 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.
