  • One of the interesting things to see at Vondelpark is the large monument to 17th-century Dutch playwright Joost van den Vondel. This monument is the work of Dutch sculptor Louis Royer (1867) who also created the Rembrandt statue at Rembrandt Square. Here you find a bronze statue of a middle-aged Vondel, seated with a book in one hand and a pen in the other. The statue is atop a decorative plinth that was created by important 19th-century Dutch architect, Pierre Cuypers and includes gold engravings and four angels. There is a large circular base that is surrounded by flower beds. The monument is a nice depiction of Vondel for whom the park was later named and is worth making time to see if you plan to visit the northeast area of Vondelpark.
