Amsterdam Street Scenes [part 2]

Hi there lovelies!                Hallo Mädels!

This is part two of my Amsterdam city trip. You can read up on part one if you missed it.
*
Hier kommt Teil Zwei meines Amsterdamer Stadtrundgangs. Den ersten Teil könnt Ihr hier nachlesen.


No visit to Amsterdam is complete without stopping by China Town!
The Buddhist Temple on the main street with its roof strangely swathed in yellow netting - don't ask me why.
*
Das urige China Town sollte man wenigstens einmal gesehen haben.
Der Buddhist Temple an der Hauptstrasse. Fragt mich nicht wieso das Dach mit einem gelben Netz eingehüllt war.


If my US readers ever visit Amsterdam and feel homesick.... ;-)

The historic Bijenkorf department store is located on the main square and not to be missed.
*
Das historische Bijenkorf Einkaufszentrum liegt zentral am Dam Platz. 





The best restaurants are usually tucked in narrow alleyways
*
Die besten Restaurants findet man in kleinen Gassen


The flower market sells an abundance of bulbs of all sorts
*
Der Blumenmarkt wo man die verschiedensten Blumenzwiebeln erwerben kann


Quaint museum showcasing spectacles
*


Love this red door!
*
Ich finde diese rote Tür ganz toll!


and also this red bike :)
*
ebenso dieses rote Fahrrad :)

 *

and so we've come to the end of the city tour. Thanks for reading along!
*
und dies ist das Ende des Rundgangs! Ich hoffe er hat Euch gefallen!

  2. Guten Morgen Duni,
    wundervolle Bilder aus einer sehr schönen Stadt. Ich war zuletzt als junge Frau in Amsterdam und habe damals die lockere Atmosphäre sehr genossen. Dein Moodboard vom Montag hat mir dieses Mal ganz besonders gut gefallen. Ich liebe ja Naturfarben und hab mich da sehr wiedergefunden. Nicht zuletzt auch wegen dem Kaffeebild :-))))

    Ganz liebe Grüße
    Birgit

  5. I love the red door and the sign of the museum for glasses, or is it a shop? Or both? We might go to Amsterdam this sunday.

  7. Wow! I can't even begin to pick a favorite! Great photos of a really cool place! Once again, I love all the colors, and that one flower bulb (I guess?) towards the back right of its photo looks like something from outer space! Too cool. My man and I are hoping to visit Europe in a couple of years. I've been several times/used to live in GB and France, but he never has. If I show him your photos, I know where he'll want to go! Especially if he sees there's a Chinatown (it's his favorite part of Honolulu).

  8. Love all your photos Duni especially the red door & bicycle .. You also make me want to go to Amsterdam now :) by the way you mentioned last time you grew up in Asia?

  9. an awesome tour. I would love to visit there some day. I guess New York Pizza is popular no matter where you go but another blogger who is from New York says that if it's not made in New York it's not the same....lol

  17. The store fronts are so charming! The yellow netting on the temple is a bit odd. Maybe there are doing some renovations? Pigeons love cities. They are so plump from all the goodies they get to eat. Thank you for the tour of this great city!

  28. I've only been to the Chinatown in Chicago, but I would love to visit Chinatown in other cities. The shot of the cafe tables is so great. I love how you captured so many little aspects of city life, like the pigeons.

  29. Traumhaft schöne Stadt. Da mag ich auch mal gerne hin :)

  30. Amsterdam is a must see place!!!! I love the fusion of different cultures and countries in this post. Though there are two things that captured my interest the most,

    the museum with spectacles and when you mentioned that the best restaurants are tucked in the narrow alleys..

    I will remember that Duni :)

    Great post! Enjoy the rest of the week

  31. More great photos! I remember a flea market in Amsterdam where all the US tourists were buying kits to grow their own marijuana!! LOL--I'm sure it never occurred to them they'd never get those kits through customs!

    ReplyDelete
  32. great photos! The buildings are so beautiful - I love looking at old buildings... Maybe the netting is to keep the birds off the outside of their building, and the droppings off the heads of their visitors! lol {:-D

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a magical set of photos! I almost felt like I was walking the streets with you :).

    ReplyDelete
  34. It was fun to vicariously travel with you! What strange bulbs! I wonder what the spidery ones are. I love the bicycles everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow Duni, what an amazing collection of photos. You really captured the city, it makes me want to take a trip soon.
