Today I would like to recommend and amazing event which will take place this weekend! This Saturday the 6th edition of the Open Tower Day in Amsterdam will take place! Between 10 am and 4 pm, over twenty Amsterdam towers will open for the public. This is an unique opportunity to check out the view from some historic, but also contemporary towers Amsterdam houses.
Some of my favorite towers will open their doors. For example; the Westertoren, Posthoornkerk and Beurs van Berlage. But also the Ramada hotel and the Fletcher hotel, which are located a bit outside the city centre. This event is a perfect opportunity to set a nice route, wander around town and discover some amazing new views.

As I have visited quite a few city centre, or Jordaan towers, I think I will use this day to go out to the ‘Zuidas’. This is a fairly new area, with some of Amsterdam’s highest skyscrapers. Definitely curious about those views!
Fun fact: there will also be a photography contest, as you can upload/send your best, most unique pictures of your view on Facebook! The submissions will be judged by professional photographers.

On most locations admission is free, but there are some exceptions! Some also have a maximum number of visitors. So you better make sure to check all guidelines at the website, before planning your route! Also the overview of all the locations is super helpful.
