Canal Ride 7 of 8

THE WESTERTOREN was built in the Renaissance style and designed by the Dutch architect Hendrick de Keyser. It is the highest church tower in Amsterdam and serves as landmark structure for this city. Built in 1637, this was the tower Anne Frank was able to see from her room in the 'Achterhuis', and the chiming of the clock was a source of comfort to her as mentioned in her diary.

An incredibly tall & impressive building SAVO. I wonder if they ever found out who betrayed A F - and if they didn't I wonder how that person slept for the rest of their wretched life
SAVO: A secret that has gone to the grave perhaps...
Very famous, the tower that Anne Frank saw while hidden in Het Achterhuis
SAVO: Yup smile
Fascinating place for images, Amsterdam - must get back there again!
