Hello lovely Steemians !

When I recently visited South-Holland I took the time and visited Amsterdam for a day and took a beautiful walk through this old fashioned capital city.

Als ich neulich in Südholland war, habe ich mir die Zeit genommen und Amsterdam für einen Tag besucht und einen schönen Spaziergang durch diese altmodische Hauptstadt unternommen.

As all cities in the Netherland I found a lot of beautiful alleys that were really enjoyable to walk through. Just look for yourself ^^

Wie in allen Städten in den Niederlanden habe ich viele schöne Gassen gefunden, durch die es sich wirklich angenehm spazieren lässt, aber überzeugen euch doch einfach selbst ^^

The canals can be found everywhere throughout the city that you might get the impression that Amsterdam consist just of many canals with some buildings inbetween. Therefore it is a common view to see boat tours everywhere.

Die Grachten sind überall in der Stadt zu finden, sodass man schnell den Eindruck bekommt, dass Amsterdam nur aus unzähligen Grachten mit einigen Gebäuden dazwischen besteht. Aus diesem Grund ist es auch normal überall Bootstouren zu sehen.

Believe me or not, I really wanted to avoid those stereotypical pictures that show something such as cheese, but I found this tasty yellow bits everywhere. They even filled out whole windows ;)

Ob Ihr es glaubt oder nicht, ich wollte wirklich vermeiden solch stereotype Bilder zu vermeiden die so etwas wie Käse zeigen, aber ich fand diese leckeren gelben Riesentaler wirklich überall. Sie haben sogar ganze Fenster ausgefüllt ;)

I know that there are fans of old historical building out there. Good news ! If you are looking for such things Amsterdam is the perfect place for you.

Ich weiß, dass es unter euch Fans von alten historischen Gebäuden gibt. Gute Nachrichten ! Wenn ihr nach genau solchen Dingen sucht, dann ist Amsterdam der perfekte Ort dafür.

You can find several Museum everywhere in the city, including the Dungeon of Amsterdam as well as a Madame Tussauds.

Überall in der Stadt gibt es mehrere Museen, darunter auch das Amsterdamer Verlies und ein Madame Tussauds.

There are some more nice things that I found here. First there are the ladies that are responsible for all the flowers that you can find in the dutch cities everywhere. Hehe, maybe not everywhere but it is so nice to see how the citizens actively care about there surroundings. The second thing is a bit funny. As there are so many bikes everywhere you have this "wrong parking" patrol that cut of all the bikes to remove them. I actually saw those patrols twice ^^

Es gibt noch ein paar weitere Dinge die ich hier gefunden habe. Zum einen sind es die Damen, die für all die schönen Blumen verantwortlich sind, die in den niederländischen Städten überall zu finden sind. Hehe, vielleicht nicht überall, aber es ist so schön zu sehen, wie sich die Bürger aktiv um ihre Umgebung kümmern. Das zweite ist ein bisschen lustiger. Da es überall so viele Fahrräder gibt, haben gibt es hier diese "Falsch-Park" Patrouille, die alle falsch geparkten Fahrräder abflext um sie zu entfernen. Ich habe diese Patrouillen tatsächlich zweimal gesehen ^^

I hope that you liked that travel tour through Amsterdam and I want to submit this for the #wednesdaywalk by @tattoodjay. I know it may be a bit longer than just five minutes but it is quite impossible as I wanted to show to you a rounded up picture of the city. By the way, they have amazing city lanterns and huge playground full of free toys if you need a rest with your children ^^

Ich hoffe, dass euch diese Tour durch Amsterdam gefallen hat und ich möchte sie für den #wednesdaywalk von @tattoodjay einreichen. Ich weiß, dass es vielleicht etwas länger als nur fünf Minuten gedauert hat, aber es war mir ziemlich unmöglich das einzuhalten, da ich euch ein zusammenfassendes Bild der Stadt zeigen wollte. Und übrigens, Amsterdam habe schicke Laternen in der ganzen Stadt und einen riesigen Spielplatz voller gratis Spielsachen, wenn Ihr euch mit euren Kindern etwas ausruhen möcht ^^

Last but not least I have an amazing travel tip for those who want to visit Amsterdam. As the city is totally crouded by tourist and quite expensive, better stay in South-Hollands capital Harlem, I postet about it a while ago, or at the beautiful city Zandvoort directly at the Atlantic Ocean. You can take a 20 min train ride from there for just 6 Euro ;)

Zu zuguterletzt habe ich einen mega Reisetipp für diejenigen, die Amsterdam besuchen möchten. Da die Stadt total von Touristen überlaufen und teuer ist, ist es besser in der südholländischen Hauptstadt Harlem zu übernachten, ich vor einiger Zeit darüber geschrieben, oder in der wunderschönen Stadt Zandvoort direkt am Atlantik. Ihr könnt von dort aus in 20 Minuten für nur 6 Euro die Bahn nehmen ;)

Hehe, if you get the chance Amsterdam would be a great place to start with. From there you can also easily travel many european cities with several international driving bus companies. I wish you the best luck with that ^^

A lovely city to explore, loaded with history, getting lost down the alley ways is part of the fun. Seeing how people live under quaint lamp lanterns and bicycle cops in town @adalger thanks for sharing.

It must be really great to live in this city, but on the other hand it might also create some problems if you are living directly in one of the biggest tourist spots in europe .. I really had some problems to find a place for a quick and "cheap" food and drink shopping .. this is a city you have to be able to pay to live in .. but if you have the money you are a lucky citizen ;) .. and you better are a frustration resistent driver, hehe ^^

When we traveled in the 1970's there were not so many people, not as many restrictions and definitely not so expensive.

On our currency today we would never be able to afford what we did then, I am glad we traveled when we were young and fit did a lot of walking around Amsterdam. Also visited the mother-in-laws village of Hilversum where she was born.

I love Amsterdam and their canals... The nicest part of the city is the inner districts where you can meet the locals and see their daily living. The inner ciy is also nice but due tó influx of tourists and those people in coffee shops, the street are so dirty especially in the red light district. I would still come back if I have the chance. It´s a groovy city.
