Amsterdam is my home and there’s no other city I’d rather live in (ok, for now!). Amsterdam is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world with a vibrant arts, culinary and cultural scene, and it’s all within a relatively small area. There are world-famous museums like the Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum, and the city’s equally famous nightlife and tolerant attitude. One of the best things I enjoy about Amsterdam is its UNESCO World Heritage canals and the beautiful houses and buildings which line them. If there’s one thing I’ll never tire of in this city, it’s a stroll along the canals at any time of the year or a leisurely cruise on a summer evening.
Photos of the Amsterdam canals
Scrolling through my many Instagram photos of Amsterdam, I realised that I take LOTS of photos of the canals – I can’t help it and I’m sure you understand why! I sifted through my photos and selected 16 of them, taken during my walks throughout the year. I hope you enjoy these scenes as much as I did! I’ve also included a city map below to show you where these photos were taken.
