The tower dates back to the 1600s. It is the highest church tower in all of Amsterdam. It is easy to find whether you're riding a canal boat or just walking. It is next to the Anne Frank house on Prinsengracht.

It is hard to miss the tower which is part of the Westerkerk and easily viewed from the canal if you are doing a boat tour or if you heading towards the Anne Frank house.

It's a short 30 minutes activity: you climb bunch of stairs, hear a bit about the history of the place and finally enjoy a great view. I think it was 8euro p.p. We had fun.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

Yes, it costs € 7,50 and it's from April to October. Guided tour is every 30 minutes. Almost no que. By the clear day, you'll see the city of amsterdam from above
