As anyone who has ever set one clogged foot on to the soil of the Dutch capital will tell you, it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Bloggers, Vloggers and Instagram’s finest are all looking for the most “instagrammable” canals, views, restaurants, café’s and street food in Amsterdam. Well lucky for you, you have hit the JACKPOT with this guide. 1. Polaberry The incredible Instagrammer @Polabur who takes some of the most stunning shots of Amsterdam, also runs the gorgeous Polaberry store and you won’t be surprised that their chocolate-dipped strawberries and miniature bars are literally made for a photoshoot. Grab yourself something sweet and pose.
Although I’m not a fan of touristy Damrak, it does offer some incredible Amsterdam views. Try a night-time shot or see if you can get a magical Amsterdam reflection in the canal. Just be patient, as many people go to take photos there you will have to wait patiently for a clearing.
Named the best fries in Holland. Dash with your cone of piping hot lovelies down to the canal before the sauce runs down your arm. We were ambitious and got the large size, and it was bigger than my head.
4. Bridges at Leidsegracht and Keizersgracht Intersections
Probably my favorite spot in Amsterdam to take photographs is the bridges where Leidsegracht and Keizersgracht meet. It makes for a great spot to capture light trails of boats going past, such as seen below and in the first photograph above. The bridges also have a ring of lights around them which looks great at night.
The Rijksmuseum is the Netherlands’ largest art museum and is home to work by masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, Frans Hals, and Rembrandt van Rijn. This iconic museum is a classic spot and in the winter you’ll find a skating rink, perfect for capturing wintery images. If there’s no wind you may also get perfect reflections in the water feature.
6. Rijksmuseum Library
The Library has three floors of walls covered with books which give a feeling that you just entered a dusty old school library. You can almost smell the books
Brighten up your day, cause who doesn’t love flowers. The flower market of Amsterdam is an amazingly colourful place in the city. The only floating flower market in the world, the flower stalls are set up on houseboats along the canal. 8. Wake Me Up When I’m Famous Sign One of the well known artsy spots to go for a fun photo is the ‘Wake me up when I’m Famous’ wall art on Frans Hallstraat 64. It’s time to nap on a bench while your friend snaps a picture of you. Rinse and repeat till you’re famous
