Went to Amsterdam in August and visited this sign. It’s definitely something everyone does when in Amsterdam. Good to have a photo in front of the sign. It’s just very busy as everyone is trying to take photos and climbing onto the letters.

This is a great tourist attraction, but it can be swamp with people. Thinking of the great photographs, think again, hardly any space to take pictures without someone interfering into your pictures

Very hard to get a photo but that isn’t the signs fault. If you are patient enough to get a good photo with all of the letters in you’re onto a good photo! Definitely worth a visit to get to iconic photo.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
