Amsterdam's most famous park. You can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, jogging and picnicking.There is a self-service coffee house were you can eat and drink by the pond. If you are lucky you may watch a concert in the theatre.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

No worries about finding coffee, but the crowds could be a problem. Outside the park there are other places that might work for you.
