Amsterdam after dark, canal

Amsterdam is undeniably one of Europe’s most alluring and attractive cities. Slender canal houses intimately press against one another, leaning in close over the canals, their window frames painted with white lipstick and roofs decorated with fine, ornate gables. As the sun sinks lower and the light begins to fade, the warm, orange glow of the street lamps that flicker on reflect in the water below and the fairy lights that snake their glimmering bodies into the trees wink down from above. Yes. Amsterdam becomes even more seductive after dark. No visit to the Red Light District needed.
