When arriving at Amsterdam's main train station eg from the airport then talk a brief walk in the direction of the harbour (ie out the railway station's back door) instead of straight into Amsterdam central, and look out into the harbour, watch the variety of boat traffic travelling past.
Id missed this harbour view not even aware it was just there the previous two visits to Amsterdam.

Particularly nice on a sunny warm day or when you are in need of a cool breeze.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

    I remember sitting here with a good friend of mine, enjoying a bottle of wine and watching the harbour lights at night.
