  1. Things To Do In Amsterdam

    Cycle around Vondelpark

    Amsterdam's most popular park is a beautiful leafy space close to the main ring canals, Old West, Old South and Museumplein. Hire a bike for the day, buy some sandwiches from Dutch supermarket institution Albert Heijn and enjoy the park on a sunny day.

    Look out for modern art sculptures and free evening open air theatre during the summer.
