Whether traveling for business or pleasure, Vondelpark to the Olympisch Stadion in Amsterdam is an incredible route you’re sure to fall in love with on foot. It’s short enough in distance that you can walk it, and capable of being looped or added to, to create a nice middle-distance run. As Amsterdam is so compact, it’s likely you can access this route and one of the park’s several entrances from your hotel, Airbnb or VRBO.
In September 2016, two friends and I traveled to Europe, with Amsterdam as our first stop. Staying in the Oud-West area, we were able to access the park from our Airbnb, passing braided trees arching over cobbled streets, street vendors selling produce, and incredibly aromatic cafes.
