Prinsengracht & Brouwersgracht corner, Amsterdam


This is a photo of one of my favourite view in Amsterdam, here on the corner of Prinsengracht and Brouwersgracht (one of most photographed corners in Amsterdam) . At this angle there is also a brown café called Papeneiland (it 'hides' in her cellar an old escaperoute for Roman Catholics -Papen), definitely in competition for the smallest pub and Amsterdam's oldest pub (1641) contests.
On Saturday, the area is really busy and joyful, with the Lindengracht Market, (900 metres starting from this corner, 232 market stands), probably the best food market in Amsterdam.

Nice to see this. I walk by this pub nearly every Sunday and occasionally drop in. A wonderful place. I have three photos of it in my Amsterdam folder:
