Excellent photos!

Amsterdam is truly a one-of-a-kind place. The Netherlands is lucky to have such a jewel for its capital!

Zuidas is a new district in Amsterdam’ southern outskirts. It has the largest number of skyscrapers in Amsterdam. Many of them are brand new. There are about 7 highrise districts in Amsterdam, but this is by far the largest.


The skyline of Zuidas. It is located in the south outskirts of Amterdam, within less then an hour train ride to Schiphol and the Hague.








WTC Amsterdam.






Ito-toren.







Amsterdam Symphony Towers (105m tall), completed in 2009.

The Rock is the name of this highrise from 2009, because it resembles a rock.

It is really unusual to see pictures of high-rises in Amsterdam. Unexpected. Thanks.

A great range of images. Amsterdam is a city of contrasts it seems. It was nice to see some of the suburban residential areas.

The new municipal library. Inside the library:






The view from the library:









Sea Palace, a floating chinese restaurant that is a smaller copy of Jumbo in Hong Kong.



The Eye, a brand new film museum and the former headquarters of Shell. These 2 buildings are situated just opposite the central station, with ferry connections to the other side.
