  • If you have too much time in Amsterdam or you're just cycling, then you could visit this park. Otherwise, I wouldn't waste my time on it. It's just another park, like any other park. And it's Amsterda...  more »

  • Its very nice to sit in the park and enjoy a drink or some snacks. Its big enough that even with so so so many tourists it never seems too full. Running or going for a nice walk is always possible!!
  • Visited this park twice during my stay in Amsterdam. Has a great balance of wild nature and maintained garden. The rose garden hidden in the central part of the park was beautiful, as well as fountains in the numerous ponds of the park. Stay alert of the birds in the garden though as they sense any food-related activity and will follow you from there on. :D Highly recommend to visit for a nice walk, running, bicycling or a picnic!
  • Awesome park to go spend an afternoon, pool for small kids, running, cycling. Will definitely get crowded on a sunny day, people will bring tents, do barbecues, wine and cups, even inflatable chairs. Has many entries and seems hidden, doesn't become immediately clear how big it is.
  • Amazing to cycle through and there's plenty of grass and benches to sit on. Also cycled through at midnight on a weekday and there were lots of people around. Very nice atmosphere, so much wildlife. Definitely a place to visit .
  • The best park in the world!! at night i advice people to take a little extra care in regards of safety, but overall its not that bad. On a warm summer day, you'll be amazed how crowded the park can be! absolute recommendation to visit the Vondelpark!
