Map of Amsterdam


Map of Amsterdam, larger view

Many of the articles in Dutch Amsterdam include links to — or have embedded — Google maps customized for each entry.

That way we can provide you with relatively uncluttered maps.

The map you see above is also powered by Google. As with all Google Maps, you can zoom in and move the map around with the options at the top left, or select a different view with the buttons at the top right. The markers shown are linked to pages within the Dutch Amsterdam website. We’ll be adding more markers as we go along.

This map is presented as part of our Amsterdam Guide, which provides basic tourist information.
