Heading to Amsterdam this Spring? Then make sure you bring your camera, as the city is a haven for those memorable Instagram moments.

1. De Poezenboot

In English – the cat boat. Yes. Cats. On a boat. Founded in 1966, this is a floating sanctuary for our abandoned fluffy friends.

A stones’ throw from the Amsterdam Centraal station, this stunning building opened as a hotel in 1890, the first to have electric lighting in the Netherlands.

6. Zaanse Schans

Hop on the train at Amsterdam Centraal, and hop off at Koog-Zaandijk. Here you will discover a traditional seventeenth century Dutch windmill park. #windmillheaven

7. Keukenhof

At the unique Keukenhof gardens your eyes will pop at the stunning beds of tulips. #tulipsforever

8. Canals

You can’t visit Amsterdam and not saturate Instagram with scenic canal views. Try the spot where the Leidsegracht and Keizergracht canals meet. #canals4ever

9. De Kas

A restaurant in a greenhouse in a park? Better see it and snap it to believe it. #keentobegreen

10. The Little Woodcutter

If you look carefully in popular square, Vondelspark, you will spot a tiny sculpture of a man sawing into a branch. #sightforsaweyes
