The Best Places to Take Photos in Amsterdam

Headed to the Venice of the North? Amsterdam is known for its picturesque canals and homes, so hop on a bicycle and meander to our favourite spots for taking photos in Amsterdam.


Jordaan is the place to be for wandering down narrow lanes and window shopping. Explore the many cafes, art galleries and shops that line the streets of Jordaan. Stop by the Noordermarkt flea market to have a look at the interesting antiques for sale. On Saturdays, an organic farmers’ market pops up in the same spot!


Stroll along the Reguliersgracht canal for picturesque classic Amsterdam views. Pay close attention to the houses that line this canal - many have interesting details you won’t want to miss! Stop at the intersection of Reguliersgracht and Herengracht for an excellent view of the many arched bridges that cross the canals.


Amsterdam’s largest city park is perfect for people watching and with its many sculptures, a good place to head with camera in tow. Be sure to see Pablo Picasso’s work “Fish” before wandering the grounds and getting lost in the rose garden.


You know those vast, seemingly endless tulip fields you grew up equating with Holland? They’re in Haarlem. If you really want to slow down and enjoy the view, rent a bike and ride to Keukenhof to see the entire Bulb Region.

De Negen Straatjes

De Negen Straatjes, which translates to “the nine streets,” are a group of nine picture-perfect shopping streets in Amsterdam’s canal belt ideal for browsing quirky shops, admiring architecture and finding a hidden spot for lunch.
