09 Apr 2022EXPLOREBY SweetEscape

Tulips, windmills, and canals. These are the three things that come to most people's mind when The Netherlands is mentioned. But the Netherlands, especially Amsterdam, is also famous for bicycle commuting. In fact, Amsterdam is the most-bicycle-friendly city in the world! You can see literally hundreds of bikes around the city as it is one of the most preferred modes of transportation for locals, and tourists are welcomed to try too!

As you plan your visit to Amsterdam, riding your bike to photogenic spots might be something worth trying! Here are six photogenic places in and around Amsterdam that you can and should visit using your two-wheeled vehicle to make your #Escapeatlast in Amsterdam more memorable!

1. Vondelpark

by Dennis + Dewi for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

As the largest city park in Amsterdam, Vondelpark is the perfect destination for cyclists! Many attractions such as free concerts in its open-air theater, a rose garden, and many quirky street performers, makes Vondelpark a right place for you to visit while taking a break from the hustle and bustle. Capturing your moments there with a serene background is a must too!

2. Along The Amsterdam Waterfront

by Dennis + Dewi for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is famous for its canals and waterfront, and it is an interesting sight to see when exploring the city on a bike. While you're there, don't forget to take great photos at the old harbor and buildings made from what looks like lots of brightly-coloured shipping containers!

3. The Nieuwmarkt

by Danny for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

If you're into multicultural lifestyle, then you should visit The Nieuwmarkt district in Amsterdam with your bike. Not only is this place good for riding, but it also has an instagrammable, chic background along with the historical Waag building for your photos!

4. Waterland District

by Danny for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

Should you want a slightly longer route to cycle to, then head north to the beautiful Waterland district. Just a short ride away from Amsterdam and you'll be greeted by picturesque villages, and rolling green grass plains of Dutch countryside. If you’re looking for a calm destination to ride your bike while taking a picture of it, then Waterland District could be a perfect answer for you!

5. Westerpark

The vibrant, historic neighborhood of Westerpark makes it an interesting place for you to explore with your bike! Not only that, but there are also loads of unique experiences you can capture when you cycle here, starting from culinary to outdoor activities!

6. Kolkswaterkering

by Andy for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

Situated on one of the smaller canals of Amsterdam, Kolkswaterkering is a bridge that is a worthy spot to stop and have a rest while taking a photograph of you! Noticeable in the background is a tower belonging to the Oude Kerk ('Old Church') which makes this location even more photogenic! Do not forget to sip a drink to fill back your energy too!
