This large, green oasis was created in the second half of the 19th Century and named after the poet Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679), a statue of whom was unveiled here in 1867. Today, Vondelpark is one of the most-visited spots in the city and is a restful haven for citizens away from the city's chaos. Come here for inline skating, let your children play in the large playground or have a cup of coffee on one of the four terraces.
I visited the park during my stay , it was nice , but nothing special. Possible if I lived there I enjoy more, but being a tourist and having so many other things to see I would not encourage anyone to feel bad if they don't have the time to visit the park.
It was nice on a rare sunny day to walk through the park but that was about it. After all, a park really is just a park. Don't get me wrong I like parks but I didn't spend much time there and wouldn't recommend spending a lot of time there. It seemed relatively safe to walk through.
strange park. after i had eaten some stale mushrooms at lunch things started to look strange. i dont know if it was the park or what but everything was growing and moving! it was the weirdest park ive ever been to!
Well maintained park, with a nice pond. Excellent for walking and relaxing. Very close to downtown, right across from Hard Rock Cafe. Public transportation right outside. Nice for a bike tour, as well.
i really enjoyed the park, it gave me a chance to wind down after all the activities in the centrum. am planning another trip in a year or so with some friends, can't wait the athmosphere is awesome along with the people.
The park is really huge, so it is a great place to go for a walk, but when we were there there were a few people who were stoned, including one young man who was going around intimidating tourists. Far more fun to go on the Hop On Hop Off Canal Cruises.
