Amsterdam is a beautiful city and is always FULL of people taking the most extravagant and breathtaking photos. There are so many different places to explore and have a little photo shoot in, but sometimes having a little guidance in your exploration helps! Since I live in Amsterdam and take a lot of Instagram photos, I thought I would share the best places to capture the perfect photo. Feel free to go to all these locations, they will bring you on a very interesting tour of the whole city (and maybe bring you to some areas you never would have thought), or just go to a few and wander around from there.
Now lets get into it!

Instagram Spots Overview
If you click on the locations I’ve pinned, it will show the name and number of that place so you can easily follow along in my blog post to see which photos were taken where!
1. Upper Jordaan
This area is super cute and not busy at all! I really like taking photos in places that aren’t very busy so I can feel more relaxed.
2. Centrum Side Streets
If you are exploring the center of Amsterdam this is the perfect place for you. Right near the busy city, but on a little side street where you can get cool photos like the one above! Sitting and taking photos is my fav!
Another perfect, downtown location! But this one has both a beautiful few from the back and front. If you want to take advantage of one location this is the one. These two photos were taken on the same bench!
4. Leidseplein (2)
Can you tell I like red doors? This is a little street in the middle of Leidseplein. It was super quiet and a great place to get some cute photos!
5. De Pijp
I love having somewhere to sit while taking photos, it makes posing A LOT easier. That’s why this spot right in De Pijp is perfect! I was there at about 10am so it wasn’t super busy yet, but this location might start getting too busy for photos as the day goes on.
6. De Pijp (2)
De Pijp is one of my favourite areas in Amsterdam. There are so many little streets that are super cute and great for photos. This location is in an area that is also full of cute cafes! So you can get a nice treat afterwards.
7. Centrum (2)
A really cute spot thats not very busy in the heart of Amsterdam.
8. Centrum (3)
This spot gets you canals and beautiful buildings! The perfect Amsterdam combo.
I love this area of Amsterdam. It’s not very touristy and the buildings look amazing!
10. Oost (2)
This spot is a 3 min walk from the other one in Amsterdam Oost & is located in a very quiet little area which I love!
11. Dam Square
This spot gets you the perfect view of the Amsterdam buildings & is also a really nice place to sit and relax on a nice day.
12. Candy Shop
Amsterdam Centrum is full of candy shops that are perfect for a really cute photo that will stand out.
I think thats enough to keep you busy for a while! If you have any photo spots you love let me know!
