Car: not necessary
The Vondelparkhouse is located in Amsterdam west. Though its located in a peaceful and quiet area you are just minutes away of the dynamic centre of Amsterdam.
As the name of the apartment already reveals you are very close to the famous Vondelpark named after the famous Dutch writer Joost van den Vondel.
In this beautiful park you can have a peaceful walk and drink a coffee in the many cute coffeehouses and café’s that are located in the park.
The Vondelpark is loved by Amsterdammers as well as by tourists, and is full of people - enjoying a sunny day, dog-walking, jogging, roller-skating, listening to music, people-watching, or just lazing about in grass. Free concerts are given at the open-air theater or in the summer at the park's bandstand.
A short walk takes you to the street named the Overtoom, which runs to the city center, where you can find a lot of nice little restaurants serving food from different parts of the world. Here you can also find reasonably priced cafes and shops.
Also the entertainment area Leidse Square is just around the block where you can find the most famous Nightclubs of Amsterdam (The Melkweg or the Paradiso) and the big theatres and live music café’s of Amsterdam.
Visiting other famous areas in and around the centre of Amsterdam should not be too much of a problem. Due to the city’s compact nature spots like the Museum, Rembrandt or Dam square, are just a twenty minute walk away.
