The Montelbaanstoren is a tower on bank of the canal Oudeschans in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The original tower was built in 1516 as part of the Walls of Amsterdam for the purpose of defending the city and the harbour. The top half, designed by Hendrick de Keyser, was extended to its current, decorative form in 1606. Since then the tower is 48m high.Add Montelbaanstoren to your Amsterdam travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Amsterdam journey builder website .

阿姆斯特丹有幾座塔樓。令我對這座塔感興趣的是它位於運河岸邊。我從普林斯路上，拍下了運河和塔的照片。照片是：運河上有船隻，右側有的塔樓，遠處運河有橋樑。這是攝影的最佳地點！ more »There are a few towers in Amsterdam. What makes me interested in this tower is that it is located on the banks of the river. I took pictures of the river and the tower from Prince Road. The photo is: There is a boat on the river, the right side of the tower, far away the river has Bridge Liang. This is the best point for photography!
il modo migliore di vederla è passarci con il battello, comunque non è possibile visitarla quindi meglio vederla da lontano e apprezzarne la vista more »The best way to see it is to pass with the boat, however it is not possible to visit it so better to see it from afar and appreciate the view
Bike city, too many people, can't really drive, pretty impossible to. People also either take trams or walk a lot. People are friendly when you ask questions. Good eating spots around the tower. I went and did canal tour around the city, pretty interesting. Amsterdam is beautiful. And lastly check out the red light district.
I love historical buildings surrounded by wifi
