By Brett Harding

On this scenic tour, I’ll be showing you all the magical spots inside Amsterdam’s largest, most famous and most popular park, with over 10 million visitors a year. Loved by Amsterdammers as well as tourists, Vondelpark is always full of people enjoying a sunny day, dog-walking, jogging, roller-skating, listening to music, people-watching or just lazing about in grass. My 30-minute tour’s designed for walking, but if you’re short of time you can listen to it on a bike, too! Simply head for the Mac Bike Shop, who charge around €11 for 3 hours plus a little more for insurance.

Beautiful park in central Amsterdam, a nice stroll through nature and a deserved break from the city rush. The hidden Picasso pieces make it a must to take the tour. Watch out for the bikes!
