How to take pictures in Amsterdam


If you put something on your list you have to do it. That’s what happened with Amsterdam. So there we were taking pictures in Amsterdam. This is a little guide on how to take pictures in Amsterdam.

Must do: Rijksmuseum, wandering, watching flowers and houses and shop in all the hipster boutiques

In a crazy moment we decided to go to Amsterdam and it was a mind blowing experience. It’s was high season so we were expecting many tourists. I guess we were one of them. On our list where all the ‘typical’ spots of Amsterdam. But I’m not waiting hours to enter a museum. So the only museum we did was the ‘Rijksmuseum’. The entrance is around 18 euros and they have different collections.

Fascinated by nature that I am I loved the parks in Amsterdam. The vondelpark is located in the center and you can find the Amstelpark just five minutes outside the center. I liked the Amstelpark more. It is much more quite and a better place to shoot some pictures. After all that is why we went to Amsterdam. Oh, and they have a little café where they have delicious pancakes. Taking a stroll down a park or next to a canal that is what Amsterdam is all about.

Amsterdam Concert

We are a huge fan of the architecture in Amsterdam. Did you know that every house there has a hook? It’s because the houses there are very small. So when you have to move your furniture it isn’t that simple. So the hooks are used to pull your sofa up to your flour. Pretty clever those Dutchies.

We saved the two best things of this trip for last. The first one is the experience of having dinner in the dark. Ctaste isn’t like any ordinary restaurant. The dining in the dark experience will trigger all your senses. You arrive in a lounge area where there is still light. They will ask for any allergies and make sure that your experience is one that you’ll never forget. I have to say that the service is remarkable! I could eat with my hands and nobody looked weird at me. And drinking from the bottle is allowed! Make sure to book a table in advance.

Amsterdam canals

The last thing that is definitely worth going to Amsterdam for is this hotel. The ‘toren hotel’ is peacefully located at the prestigious Keizergracht. One of the most beautiful canals, which for obvious reasons, is placed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. It’s a charming four star boutique hotel in the center of Amsterdam. Do we have to say more? Let’s start by saying that we stayed in the special deluxe room with garden view features an in-room double Spa Whirlpool bath for a true romantic stay. There was breakfast in bed and champagne upon arrival. What can a girl ask more for?

On that note, Amsterdam I’ll be back for more pictures!

Do you know a place for non-traditional pictures in Amsterdam?
