Located southwest of the city center, Vondelpark is the favorite leafy retreat of just about everyone. Most recent travelers said they enjoyed people-watching and picnicking at the park, but other reviewers recommend avoiding a late-night visit as the park can be a little frightening once the sun sets. During the day, though, the park is filled with couples, families and friends, and is definitely worth a visit.
Ponds, fields and playgrounds are connected by winding paths, which also run by an open-air theater, a rollerblade rental, several cafes and a range of statues and sculptures. Open dawn to dusk, you can take a number of trams, including 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10 or 12, to get there.
