Cute tower located next to flower market, you'll see it even by accident just walking around looking at the sights in and around city centre and markets. It does make for a nice photo backdrop amongst the flower market. Like other towers this is another...More

Munttoren is an old but beautiful clock tower next to flower market in Amsterdam. There are many souvenir shops around and many visitors come to view the stone tower when they pass by the flower market.

Why is it a favorite with the stoners? There is a clock and sign below marking the year 1620 when the steeple was added. On a 24 hour clock 1620 marks 4:20 PM which represents when they get off work, so the stoners take selfies...More

This is a very nice attraction in Amsterdam just because it is a landmark. You can’t really do anything there other than take a picture but seeing something that is on postcards is sure memorable.

One of my favorite landmarks of old Amsterdam, always catches my eye. Love looking at it, and I use it as a way to figure out where I am.

Was part of Amsterdam’s fortified city wall,built with an eight-sided top half and elegant open spire featuring a clock with four clock faces and a carillon of bells. Also known as the Mint Tower as this was where coins were minted during the 17th century

This is a beautiful tower - at the bottom of bloemmarket. Pity you cannot go up to get a nice view of Amsterdam.

At the end of the Kalverstraat, the big high street, is this tower, Not very special, onderneath this tower is a souvenirshop (too expensive). But to hear a clock is always nice.

I have come across Munt Tower before in my visit to Amsterdam. It is a striking eight sided clock tower. You will find it in Muntplein square, near the flower market, where the Amstel river and the Singel canal meet.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
