Bicycles Bicycles Bicycles

Bikes rule in Amsterdam's streets. It's obvious having a pile of parked bikes on the sidewalk takes up so much less space than a bunch of cars. They could have, at least, arranged them. :D

Munt Torren

The Munttorren (Munt Tower) stands on the busy Muntplein square, near the flower market and the start of the Kalverstraat shopping street, where the Amstel river and the Singel canal meet.

The tower was originally part of the Regulierspoort, one of the main gates in Amsterdam's medieval city wall. The gate, built in the years 1480-1487, consisted of two towers and a guard house.

After the gate went up in flames in a 1618 fire, only the guard house and part of the western tower remained standing. The tower was then rebuilt in Amsterdam Renaissance style in 1619-1620, with an eight-sided top half and elegant open spire designed by Hendrick de Keyser, featuring a clockwork with four clockfaces and a carillon of bells.

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands.
