It’s a cycle through Vondelpark on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It’s a boat tour through the canals marvelling at 17th-century architecture. It’s a ferry ride to the industrial north to explore its hidden gems.
An original Picasso in the Vondelpark
It’s easy to walk right past this concrete sculpture at the southern end of the Vondelpark without realising that it is, in fact, by Picasso himself. Created in 1965 as part of an outdoor sculpture exhibition to mark the 100th anniversary of the Vondelpark, the 'Figure découpée l’Oiseau' (‘The Bird’) was donated to Amsterdam by Picasso after the exhibition and has remained in the same spot ever since.
