Similarly, the city’s favorite park will captivate you. Take some time to walk around the park, enjoy the greenery or even have a picnic on a sunny day. It is a great combination of art and nature and the perfect place to relax.

Hortus Botanicus 

This botanical garden is one of the oldest in Europe, dating back to 1638. If different kinds of plants are a thing for you, grab your camera and visit the Hortus Botanicus, downtown. This Instagrammable place in Amsterdam will add some green, peaceful moments to your photo collection.

#3 City Perspectives

A’dam Lookout

Do you feel brave enough? Then A’dam Lookout is a fit for you! If swinging at a height of 100 meters above Amsterdam is on your bucket list, this is your chance to cross it out. For the rest of us, the 360º Sky Deck provides a breathtaking view of the city and some great Instagram shots!

The Boat Perspective

Can you think of a better way of seeing Amsterdam city than going on a boat tour? During summer or on a sunny day, choose the boats with no glass around, that will allow you to take better photos unhindered by ceilings. You can try a totally alternative boat tour with Plastic Whale. An environmentally-friendly tour, lasting for 2 hours where you both enjoy picturesque locations but also your own fishing net to remove any piece of plastic. Pretty fun and different experience right?

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

Maybe not what you actually expected, but you will find a treasure inside Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Except for the wax exhibits, there is a big round window that overlooks Dam’s Square and can guarantee an amazing shot!

A must-visit for all cat lovers.

Food is always Instagrammable, especially when it comes to street food. Amsterdam has exactly what you need to use the #foodporn and make your followers drooling over your account.

Trust me your inspiration and taste will go wild with these!

#6 Street art

NDSM Wharf

NDSM Wharf used to be an industrial shipyard that has now been converted into a cultural hub. Here except for the hipster atmosphere, events and food stalls you can also find a huge graffiti of Anna Frank.

The Belle’s statue

Last but not least, the statues located around the city are art exhibits and totally worth to take a shot of them. Belle’s statue is located in front of De Oude Kerk, in the heart of Red Light District. Belle asks all passersby to ‘’Respect sex workers from all over the world’’.

#7 Amsterdam’s bridges, canals and alleys

During your long walks around Amsterdam, there are some hidden streets, beautiful bridges, canals and neighborhoods that you should not miss.

Do you wish for eternal love? Then you should definitely visit the Staalmeestersburg love lock bridge over the Groenburgwal canal. All you need is love, your significant other and a padlock.

As the sun sets the Skinny Bridge or Magere Brug light up and gets so beautiful that you don’t want to miss it.

#8 Oude Kerk

Oude Kerk is the oldest building of Amsterdam and it actually means Old Church. However, what is really Instagrammable about this place is that nowadays it is an art installation, although you can enjoy some religious art, too.
