Situated south of the city center, Vondelpark is one of Amsterdam's classic running destinations. It is flat, beautiful and big enough for a decent running loop — very popular for lunch runs on sunny days.

What Others Are Saying
The most popular running spot in Amsterdam by far is the Vondelpark. On sunny days it's actually crowded with runners and for bikers it's hard to dodge them ;). A whole round around the park on the main path is about 3,3 km so for the long distance runners it can get boring. But for people who just want a short moderate exercise it is perfect. Also it is located next to the city centre so really easy to get to.
It’s next to the city center and it's a meeting point for a lot of runners. I consider the Strava segments in this park as being the most prestigious ones. And the other runners in the park are perfect motivation for beating your own PRs.
