Vondel Park is a wonderful park in the centre of amsterdam. I have been many times but never been here, until I heard the bar was now brouwerij t'ij. Enjoyed a couple of beers in the glorious sun on a wonderful day in amsterdam.

What I like best is this place as a meeting place. Sometimes the queues are so long and no clean tables. But maybe that is the charm about this place. I like the barmen and women. And the cappuccino.

The Theehuis was an okay place to stop given that we were already at the park. I don't recommend making this the reason to visit the park.

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
