Westerkerk is a church located next to Anne Frank House, which is definitely a place worth spending a lengthy session on photography alone. There are a number of beautiful features you can find and capture images of.
This is a church located right in the middle of the Red light district. You may feel its placement is a bit odd, but as it turns out, this church is 800 years old. The medieval architecture, the designs, and the ceiling are all features which would make for a well-composed photo.
Reguliersgracht has 7 bridges placed in a line over it, and all are clearly visible from a single vantage. This makes one of the most beautiful sights you can admire while in the city, and an ideal one for photography. Besides, it is well accessible as it is situated close to Rembrandtplein.
