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.

  • Great shopping values. The downtown next to the central train station is closed for traffic and houses thousands of high level shopping stores with great restaurants and play area for the kids. Almere is a short train ride from Amsterdam worth the trip!
  • Great Place to visit! We've been here the second time and I love it! There is really nothing to do, but the Montelbaanstoren is worth a visit merely for it's beauty.
