Accounts snapping the beauty of Amsterdam

1. @gosse_bouma

City photographer Gosse Bouma definitely knows how to catch the most magical moments. He also has a very special sense of light which makes his works powerful and well recognizable. Just look at this photo he made on Rozengracht at 5:25 AM!

2. @noramaria.nl

Nora Maria is one the best in showing the Amsterdam we all know and enjoy: iconic architecture and city views shot on the wide-angle lens. Here is a great example of Groenburgwal pictured in all seasons (swipe to enjoy! 👉)

The account that is just for laughs

7. @tourists_vs_bikes

The name of this one says it all! Random sketches of ridiculous collisions between Amsterdammers and tourists on cycle lanes. Even though it hasn’t been updated since 2019 (please tell us that you will return!), it’s still a very funny and educative resource to see the cyclist’s side of the story:
