Theatrical heritage

Amsterdam's Vondelpark is steeped in musical and theatrical history. The 'Vondelpark Parties' were organised in the park and the Music Pavilion and Vondelpark Stage both hosted music, operetta and dance performances over the years. The Vondelpark Open Air Theatre sprang into life in 1974, combining the 'Vondelpark Parties' and so-called 'Happenings' - the name given to the performances organised at the time.

Weekend entertainment

Head to the Open Air Theatre in the Vondelpark to catch a performance on Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer. Entry is free, although all voluntary donations are appreciated.
