Picture Perfect Amsterdam in Autumn

The air is becoming crisp, the leaves are starting to change, and the heavy jackets are emerging once again. It must be autumn in Amsterdam!

 

The city of canals and stunning canal houses has a gift for those who visit after the high season and a treat for those who live here and have to live through the winter. The Elm trees that line the canals in the center of the city start turning the recognizable shades of red, orange, and yellow that you expect to see in autumn.

Though the Elm tree is the most common along the main canals in Amsterdam, there are many more varieties of trees all around the city. It’s a very green place in the spring and summer!

Amsterdam is my favorite city for so many reasons. It’s a major European capital that only has about 800,000 residents and feels like a village. And then autumn comes…

Stunning. Inspiring. Calming. Instagram-worthy.

So many more words could describe Amsterdam in autumn. But they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s get to the good stuff.

For your viewing pleasure, I hope these make you yearn to visit my city!
