The Zuiderkerk ("southern church") is an early 17th-century Protestant church in the Nieuwmarkt area, the city's first church built specifically for Protestant services. It is one of my favourite areas of the city, and the church is a jewel in the crown. The design of...More

I could only admire this church from the exterior, a sign on the door states that tours are now closed for the church. It's a pleasant location tucked away where there are fewer tourists. Great for some photos and a pleasant stroll around the perimeter.

This church is beautiful and I guarantee it is the most prettiest place to take a picture in Amsterdam! The towers is precisely in the middle of the canal, making the picture looks like a postcard. Highly recommended!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
