Outdoors Amsterdam

 

Do venture to Vondelpark. Amsterdam’s answer to New York’s Central Park, is as much a part of the city as the coffee shops and canals. The park – a playground for people from all walks of life – is named after the poet and playwright Joost van del Vondel who died in 1679.

Regardless of whether you want to relax and read a book, rollerblade, fly kites or share a spliff with friends – you can do it all in this popular park.

Head for the Beach… no need to leave the city. Urban beaches are a new and rapidly growing phenomenon in Amsterdam. With some ten city beaches – including one atop the towering science centre NEMO overlooking the city – Amsterdam offers a refreshing twist on the traditional sun and sand experience during the summer, while maintaining all the perks of big city culture.
