Learn Dutch at the Vondelpark Paviljoen
Today, in our series about great spots for Flowently’s live sessions we take you to the beautiful Vondelpark Paviljoen in Amsterdam. Here you can learn Dutch with a great view of Amsterdammers on bikes – all sorts and ages- in a hurry to school or work, skaters, sporty joggers, dog lovers, picknickers, lots of tourists and – when the sun is out – sunbathers.
Entering Vondelpark from Van Baerlestraat, you almost can’t miss it; a beautiful renovated national monument in Italian Renaissance style with Ionic columns. Interesting fact, the Paviljoen is at the lowest spot of Amsterdam, the water level in the ponts in the park is 2,5 meters under sea level.
Until 2012 this was the ‘Filmmuseum’ where you could watch alternative, classic, arthouse movies. As you might know, Filmmuseum moved to Amsterdam North. The Vondelpark Paviljoen will soon house the documentary lab IDFA and let’s hope they will restart the Summer Open Aire Movie Theatre.
But let’s get to what’s really important: how’s the terrace? The terrace is part of the majestic building, so you can imagine how amazing it all looks, right? It’s one of the biggest terraces of Amsterdam’s city center and the fancy restaurant No Rules offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and delicious coffee. Get ready for a comfy, relaxed learning session. You can practice ordering in Dutch straight away with the friendly waiters!
