Harbor / Marina
“Industrial area with old shipyard converted into an​ artistic beehive​​. Also hosts the biggest flea market (IJ-hallen) in Europe once every month. It is definitely worth it to take a stroll around if you are into this kind of thing. How to get there: take the free ferry behind Central Station to NDSM (leaves every 20 minutes) ”

Monument / Landmark
“The Homomonument is located on the bank of the Keizersgracht canal near Westerkerk church.As the name might suggest, the Homomonument, located in the center of Amsterdam, pays homage to the struggles of gay men and women fighting for equity and freedom. The memorial, which includes three large pink granite triangles, was opened in 1987 and is the first in the world to honor gays and lesbians who lost their lives at the hands of Nazis. In 2011, another such monument was erected in Barcelona that was modeled after the famous Homomonument. Travelers looking to explore the history and culture of Amsterdam may want to include a visit to this iconic destination en route to the Anne Frank museum”

“With hot weather: If you like to have a nice swim very nearby you can jump (a few meters) down into the river IJ at ’het stenen hoofd’ (the head of stone’), lots op people do. And you can climb out (or in…) with steps. Jump where other people do and you’ll be safe, we go there a lot. You can bring your drinks and food or buy something at the small café. Its 4 minutes walk. It's also a nice place just to hang around, have a picknick. Adres: opposite of ‘Westerdoksdijk 715’ ”

“National Monument Standing high in the center of Amsterdam’s Dam Square, the National Monument is the Netherlands’ most important World War II memorial. In 1945, shortly after the end of the war, a liberty pole was erected in Dam Square; it evolved into the present-day 72-feet tall monument, which was unveiled on May 4 1956 by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Every May 4 since then, the Dutch royal family and local residents participate in National Remembrance Day and pay their respects to fallen soldiers from both WWII and subsequent armed conflicts involving the Netherlands. Dutch architect J.J.P. Oud created the travertine stone monument, while John Rädecker and his sons designed.”
