When you think of Amsterdam you probably have an image in mind. There is one street that you will keep seeing in tourist guides and on blogs. When your fave instagrammer visits the Dutch capital chances are they end up shooting a picture here. And I myself have shot tons of pictures here as well.Can you blame me? These cute gingerbread houses are so easy and pretty to photograph. Plus they make for a pretty clean shot in my Instagram feed 😉 Whenever I post this place I get a lot of questions about where it is, so here goes! Bookmark this page if you want to save it for your next trip.
This street is called the Damrak and it’s very easy to find: it’s right between the Central Station and my fave department store: De Bijenkorf.
It’s one of the few spots in Amsterdam where you’ll be able to get a clean shot without people in the backdrop. And if you do come from the Central Station you can shoot here straight away and take that famous insta shot off your checklist!
If you want me to share more posts like this let me know, I’m planning on making a comeback on this very blog 😉
