Het Groot Melkhuis

Cafe in Vondelpark & the South

This rambling Swiss-chalet-style timber house has a gingerbread look about it, at the edge of the Vondelpark forest. It's a regular cafe with coffees, beers, wine and light snacks. It's the go-to hang-out for families with kids, as it encompasses a playground with sandpits, diggers and so on, but there's deck seating by a swan-gliding pool as well.

In summer kids can do craft activities here in the afternoon (€5).
