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.

  • 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!

  • 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
