Gingerbread houses on Damrak

As soon as we started our second day, we headed to the famous gingerbread houses of Amsterdam. One of the most Instagrammable locations of the city. To reach there just head towards the Amsterdam Central Station – near the boat parking on the Damrak.

Canal views

The canals in Amsterdam have a great cultural value and it is impossible to miss these canals. My favourites were the one around de negen strategies – The nine streets.

Dam Square

Dam Square, the main town square in Amsterdam. With the royal palace on one side, national monument, Neiuwe Kerk this square is really a great place to chill.
