This hidden Gem of Amsterdam offers an incredible view of the Oudeschans canal, with the Montelbaanstoren tower in the background.

Photography Tips

This spot is not very touristic and there are not many people around, however, it offers a beautiful view and clear lights if you want to practice your Night Photography skills.
The canal is very wide so, I would suggest a wide-angle lens or to know how to merge multiple photos as a Panoramic shot (a technique used for the photo displayed).
The canal looks best during Nighttime, however, it might be interesting also for sunrise.
