Amsterdam is one of the prettiest cities in Europe with tilting houses, tiled rooftops and all. However, due to the city’s notoriously flat geography, it can be quite difficult to find a decent viewing point in Amsterdam. Fortunately, there are several spots that offer visitors incredibly stunning panoramic views when enjoying a good cup of coffee in this canal-filled city. Here are 5 best coffee-with-a-view spots in Amsterdam for an ‘ouranophile’!
- BLUE AMSTERDAM
Blue Amsterdam is a café and restaurant with an amazing 360-degree view of the city. Located in a futuristic glass tower in the middle of the city centre, Blue offers a view of Amsterdam you have never seen before. A lot of Amsterdam’s highlights can be seen from here: Rijksmuseum, Munttoren, Zuiderkerk, Westerkerk, Carré theatre, Central Station, Royal Palace and the flower market. Take the glass elevator to the third floor and have a look around. Every trip to Amsterdam should start at Blue!
- SKYLOUNGE AMSTERDAM
Each metropolis has a unique spot to discover the city from great height. Amsterdam has the SkyLounge Amsterdam, an award winning roof-top lounge bar overlooking this unique metropolis. This is the place where inhabitants of Amsterdam and global travelers meet each other. SkyLounge Amsterdam offers you a panoramic view of Europe’s most energetic capital, 365 days a year. It is the perfect spot for all your appointments, both business and private with a cup of Buscaglione coffee or a dish from the sophisticated lunch menu.
