Built in 1864, a group of Amsterdam citizens raised money to build this public park that’s now known as Vondelpark. The sprawling urban oasis is perfect for the entire family. You can rollerblade, listen to the live entertainment, or play with your kids on the wooden planks. During the summer, the park puts on free concerts in the open-air theater, and every Friday at 8:30 p.m., skateboarders from all over meet up to show off their tricks in front of the crowd.
