A photographer's dream. Colours, building designs, bridges, old boats all there to be photographed. Combine the Docklands with Azartplein and see the wide selection of little bridges over tiny canals. Bus 48 from Central station takes you there.

We joined our APT cruise ship here and noticed the many modern buildings across the water. It's a fine example of modern architecture but to be honest I think that the older buildings in Amsterdam are far more beautiful.

Surrounded by modern architecture but to the north of real Amsterdam. Other than the modern buildings it's pretty bland. You can get on and off your canal cruise at this point

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
