Vondeltuin

Vondeltuin

The Vondeltuin is a lovely café/restaurant with a huge terrace and playground situated in the most southwestern end of the beautiful Vondelpark. It is the perfect place to come with children on a summery day, but even when the weather is less forgiving there is an indoor restaurant area with a cosy little wood fire to warm up in.

The restaurant and bar is very casual – you can enjoy a meal and relax on the beautiful outdoor terrace, or simply grab a coffee or drink and some snacks from the bar and have them at one of the benches in the playground (or join the rest of the parents sitting at the edge of the sandpit with a drink in hand playing with their little ones!).

The playground seems so simple, yet effectively keeps children of all ages occupied for hours! There is a giant sandpit that gets filled with toys for all to enjoy over the hot Summer months, as well as two big slides, and climbing structures that challenge all different age ranges.

Vondeltuin cafe closes over the Winter, but the playground remains accessible all year round.
