VondelparkVondelpark - The Vondelpark, named after the 17th century poët Joost van den Vondel, is one of the oldest, largest and most popular public urban parks in Amsterdam. The park opened in 1865 and was originally named the New Park. However the public quickly started calling the park Vondelpark after the statue of the famous writer was placed and eventually the name was adopted officially.

In summer it is the place to relax, play games, make music, roll a joint or a have picnic with friends or family. In winter the Vondelpark is a romantic spot for a stroll. Het Blauwe Thee Huis (The Blue Tea House) in Vondelpark is not just for sitting down and ordering a refreshing drink or having a small snack: multiple film festivals are presented here each year.

In the middle of the park you will find the Vondelpark Openluchttheater, an open air theatre with shows from June until August. There are performances of classical music, pop music, world music, dance, musical theatre and cabaret. The theatre receives a subsidy from the city government. And although all performances have free entrance, visitors are asked for a voluntary donation.
