30 Days of Amsterdam Canal Houses – Day 30

August 30, 2017 3 comments

Well, this is the last of my little series of photos of canal houses in Amsterdam. What’s interesting about these canal houses is that one street away (not on a canal) are all sorts of other types of architecture. Such as a skinny street or a round building.

What should I share next about life in Amsterdam?

Some people take advantage of being on the canal, and others just build to the edge to maximize the size of their home.

Flowers.

Yes, even if your house is next to a McDonald’s, you can still make it look nice with flowers.

Museums.

Next door to your home on the canals might be a museum. I haven’t gone to the canal museum (the plaque I have pictured here), but it’s on my to-do list.

Skinny houses.

As if you haven’t figured it out yet, most of the houses on the canals are very skinny, because people were taxed on the width of their home.
