Amsterdam is a fine, fine city. One of beautiful canals, cobbled streets and narrow houses. It’s a city that blooms with tulips every spring, draws in the crowds throughout the year and is more often than not labelled as one of the best cities in Europe to visit.
With many of us socially isolating at home, and others unable to visit tourist hotspots due to them being on lockdown, it's easy to feel disconnected from the outside world. Luckily, there's still a way to explore the travel destinations you wish to visit and create the best itinerary for your future trip there.
This time, we are taking you to the capital of Netherlands so you can imagine yourself right at the Dam Square or wondering around in Vondelpark!. So go ahead - check out our Instagram Tour of Amsterdam and take a look at where you could be going very soon.
This one it's a must include to your itinerary! Previously known as a working-class area of Amsterdam, it has been changing in recent years to become an upcoming area of the city. Art galleries, cool cafes, courtyards and open markets are popping up all over the place and it’s worth spending an afternoon soaking up the atmosphere of this hip Amsterdam district.
While Jordaan is a great place to see the canals, anywhere you go in Amsterdam, you’re bound to cross a bridge over at least one. The city is also famous for boathouses and for the best views you should definitely take a boat tour to see the city from a whole new angle and will have some amazing opportunities to shoot your next viral photo!
Another of Amsterdam’s icons are the tulips that bloom every spring. You’ll see bunches of them dotted around the city or venture to Bloemenmarkt, the world’s only floating flower market that offers gorgeous scenery and very cute floral backdrops!
The Iamsterdam sign is probably one of the most photographed sights around the city. This 23 metre long sign stands in Museumplein, just behind the Rijksmuseum, and is adored by both visitors and residents who love clambering on the letter and snapping a photo.
There’s plenty of space in Amsterdam and one of the largest green spaces in the city. Go here for a chill out, a relax, a jog, a bit of a stroll… Whatever you want to do here, it’s a beautiful place to spend some time and in one of the most beautiful parts of the city.
1 of only 6 remaining windmills in Amsterdam, Windmill de Gooyer attracts those looking to enjoy a beer in the sun under one of the Netherlands most iconic structures. If you want a table though, arrive here early as this place get busy pretty quickly on those summer days…
