Amsterdam isn’t lacking in stunning scenery, but some of its most beautiful lies along the historic western canal belt. This tranquil area of the city is packed with both world-famous and lesser-known attractions, and you can see them from the comfort of your couch on a virtual tour with a local Dutch host.
See plenty of places you wouldn’t expect, from an artisanal chocolate bonbon shop to Die Bierkoning – a beer emporium that’s been in business since 1985 – and explore some of the city’s more famous sights. You’ll stroll through Dam Square, the heart of Amsterdam’s historic district lined with important buildings, and see the renowned Anne Frank House and Westerkerk, a 17th-century Renaissance-style church.
Head to another iconic structure, Church of Our Lady, located in The 9 Streets, a picturesque micro-neighborhood, and end your virtual visit at De Kaaskamer, a Dutch deli selling specialty cheeses, drinks, and snacks.
