South of the Amsterdam RAI convention centre lies the vast Amstelpark. The park is a paradise for kids, with a petting zoo, minigolf and a playground. In summer a miniature train chugs its way around the park. Other attractions include rose and rhododendron gardens; art exhibitions are held in the Glazen Huis (Glass House), the Orangerie and the Papillon Gallery.

Just outside the park's south edge, on the west side of the Amstel river, you'll see a 1636 windmill called the Riekermolen . In a field southwest of the mill, you'll find a statue of a sitting Rembrandt, who made sketches here along the riverbank.
