While the Vondelpark is bigger in size and reputation, this tranquil English-style park delivers an equally potent shot of pastoral summertime relaxation, with far fewer crowds. Named after Samuel Sarphati (1813–66), a Jewish doctor, businessman and urban innovator, the grounds are a mix of ponds, gently rolling meadows and wooded fringes.
In the centre you'll see the Sarphati memorial from 1886, a bombastic temple with a fountain, gargoyles and a bust of the great man himself.
