The Vondelpark is one of my favourite parks in Amsterdam. From the city center you can access the park near Leidseplein. It’s a nice green break from the busy city center to enjoy the green site of Amsterdam and walk all the way to Amstelveenseweg.
During the summer this is the backyard of the Amsterdammers, but we also love the park for a walk during winter time. A few places that are nice to go for a drink afterwards are The Vondeltuin or Vondelpark3. Good to know: it’s not allowed to bbq in the Vondelpark, but of course a picnic is also nice for warm summer evenings. My favourite part of the park is the rose garden where you usually only find locals. All year round there are events going on in the park, but during summer months the Vondelpark Openluchttheater is a place not to miss during the weekends.
