comment 1

(Updated January 2019) Have you ever wondered where that one Instagrammer made that beautiful picture? Today I will take you on a tour of Amsterdam and tell you where you can find the best Instagram spots in Amsterdam at the moment!

Blue Amsterdam

Blue needs to be in the list because of its view. And Instagrammers from all over the world know their way to this restaurant. Have you been here yet?

Moco Museum

If you’ve not been to the Moco Museum, you haven’t been in Amsterdam. No, just kidding. But this Museum really asks to be grammed. So go there and do you thing.

Never Fade Away

In De Pijp on the Govert Flinckstraat you will find this “Do not Ever Fade Away”, street art by On The Hill.


The polkadot square in Amsterdam West

You probably have to travel a bit, because this square is outside the city center at the Sloterplas in Amsterdam West! Many Instagrammers came here on this Instagram Spot with a suitcase full of outfits and props already shoots.

EYE Museum

A beautiful white wall with black grid on the IJ in Amsterdam Noord, for the minimalists among us.

Since the opening of the mega Instagram-proof hotel; Kimpton De Witt we see this neon sign everywhere! This is perhaps the most up-to-date Instagram spot of Amsterdam in this list.

Wake me up when I’m famous

This Instagram spot, wall including a bench can be found in De Pijp, to be precise in the Frans Halsstraat.


This is an Instagram spot that I’m not sure if it’s still there. You can find it in the UVA at the Turfmarkt, the drawings are part of the Hansje van Manen exhibition. A beautiful background if you ask me.

Hortus Botanicus

A nice Instagram spot between the cacti of the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam. A terra-colored wall for a nice tropical vibe on your Instagram feed and the whole hortus is of course an Instagram-proof spot for all your outfit posts ;)!

Dit zijn de 5 groenste hotspots van Amsterdam




Right behind the Haarlemmermeerstation you’re find a bit urban part of Amsterdam. With an old tram depot, a lot of crazy sheds. Great for a streetsyle shoot.


The urban jungle in the ZOKU entrance on the Weesperstraat is a nice place to hang out. On sunny days the plants provide beautiful shadows and you have a beautiful view of the city from the roof terraces.


Let’s round up this list of best Instagram spots in Amsterdam in style. The Old Time Classic, you do not count as an Instagrammer in Amsterdam if you have not previously shot this row of canal houses on the Dam.

Moody reflections and classic city views that just never get old…🖤 Also, I’ve just realized I haven’t posted a picture of these Damrak houses in ages😳 ….probably because of the construction crane that was in front of one these houses since what it seemed like forever! So you can imagine my happy face when I finally saw that it had been removed!😄 Happy Saturday friends!✨ . . . . #damrak #facadelovers #moodyphotography #gingerbreadhouses #facadesofbuildings #topeuropephoto #amsterdamworld #iamsterdam #seemycity #visitamsterdam #moodygram #topeuropephoto #topamsterdamphoto #culturetrip #theprettycities #iamatraveler #gglocalgems #amsterdamcanals #allhailsymmetry #bestcitybreaks #wheretofindme #passionpassport #topamsterdamphoto #tasteintravel #postcardsfromtheworld #travellingthroughtheworld #living_europe #mytinyatlas #beautifuldestinations #super_holland

Hotel Droog

Hotel Droog is the perfect Instagram-proof hot spot in the centre of Amsterdam. Also perfect for coffee and lunch by the way! The property is full of Instagram-proof corners. And this is only one of them! (Thanks for the tip Karlijn!)
