Amsterdam, Netherlands

Vondelpark and Rembrandtpark

At 120 acres, Vondelpark is the largest park in Amsterdam, very popular and centrally located — less than 1km away from Museumplain (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum, and the concert hall). There are lovely paths and gardens, an open air theater, statue of the poet Vondel, the cast iron music dome, the Groot Melkhuis with playground for children, and the historical Pavilion with its restaurant Vertigo. A tour of the park’s outer paths is 2.5 miles.

A wonderful combination run is to add Rembrandtpark, which makes for a 5.5 mile loop. Rembrandtpark has lovely with ponds, playgrounds, walking and biking paths, the oldest petting zoo in Amsterdam…and some small hills! There’s a good connection in our map.

Nonetheless, because of what precisely I have witnessed, I basically hope when the opinions pile on that folks continue to be on issue and in no way start on a tirade regarding some other news du jour. Yet, thank you for this fantastic piece and while I do not necessarily go along with the idea in totality, I regard your viewpoint.
