This unusual sight is found at the bridge crossing of the Reguliersgracht with the Herengracht, on the side with odd numbers. Standing on this bridge with your back to the Thorbeckeplein, you will see six arched bridges in a row. To the left you will find six more over the Herengracht and on the right you will see the next two. The 15th is the bridge you are standing on. It is particularly worth coming here at night as the bridges are illuminated giving one of the most beautiful and romantic views in Amsterdam. « less

Located in one of the oldest streets of central Amsterdam and around the corner of the Red Light district. With its typical Amsterdam bell-gable, this house is a miniature version of the majestic canal-side houses Amsterdam is so famous for. The Smallest House in Amsterdam is built in 1738 (approx.) And is only 2.02 Meter (6 ft., 7.5 In.) Wide, 5 meters (16 ft. 4.0 In.) Deep and approximately 8 meters (26 ft. 2.5 In.) High. Some people even say it is the smallest house in Europe! What ever it may be, the fact is that this small house on Oude Hoogstraat 22, is one of the most remarkable and hidden landmarks of the historical city of Amsterdam. Nowadays you will find here a tasteful tea and ceramics boutique. With fine teas, ceramics and specialties from Holland. « less
