There haven’t been any photos from Amsterdam for a long time, even though I’ve been there several times in the last few years. So here are some summery photos from the Dutch capital 🙂 From a photographic point of view, I find the setting sun shining through the canal houses particularly attractive. You should also take advantage of the many opportunities to see the city from above.
Amsterdam is known for its rich history and many attractions. One of the city’s most famous museums is the Rijksmuseum, where you can discover the history of the Netherlands and the works of famous painters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. Another highlight is the canal-side Old Town, which is a real experience with its narrow streets and Dutch-style buildings.
One of the most popular activities for tourists in Amsterdam is to take one of the many canal boats through the city. The canals are the heart of the old city and offer a unique view of the picturesque houses and buildings along the water. During the trip you can also discover many of the famous bridges, such as the Magere Brug or the Blauwbrug.
Here on the blog I show Amsterdam in summer when the parks and gardens are in full bloom and you can sit outside and enjoy the city. I particularly recommend the Vondelpark, the city’s largest park and a popular place for walks and picnics.
Amsterdam’s history dates back to the 12th century and has seen many changes and developments over the centuries. Some of the historic buildings and places to visit are the Koninklijk Paleis, the former Royal Palace, the Nieuwe Kerk, a 15th century Gothic church, and of course the Anne Frank House, where you can learn more about the life of the Jewish Frank family and the history of the Second World War.
