The beautiful Vondelpark is one of the oldest and largest public parks of Amsterdam. In summer this is the favorite places of locals to enjoy the sun. The Vondelpark offers a great opportunity for riding bicycle. Situated north of the park is Oud-West, a very relaxed part of town with lots of restaurants, cafés and bars. And just a few minutes away by bicycle you can find the best museums of the Netherlands.
You can find all the top museums of the Netherlands; het Rijksmuseum (the national museum), het Stedelijk Museum (the museum of modern arts), and the Van Gogh museum, just a couple of minutes away by bicycle from the Vondelpark, at Museumplein.
Alternatively you can explore Oud-West, a very relaxed part of town with lots of options for shopping, eating and drinking. A new highlight here is De Hallen, a renovated tram depot which now houses a food market, library, cinema, shops and a hotel.
