Amsterdam Webcams - Best Real-Time Peeks Into Amsterdam
Do you want to get a live, real time look at Amsterdam? Want to see if it's sunny or raining, busy or deserted? Just log on to one of these Amsterdam webcams and you can view the city exactly as it is at this very moment.
The best of the Amsterdam webcams online at the moment, the Koningsplein live webcam has a full frame feed with sound looking over one of Amsterdam's most central spots. While the image is not positioned perfectly to view Amsterdam's scenery, the Amsterdam Flower Market lies just out of shot to the right and the framing is great for waving to your friends and family back home.
The Amsterdam RAI exhibition and conference centre has a number of webcams situated around the facility. The website allows you to view a number of Amsterdam webcams located here and at other locations. All have live images with a rather poor frame rate.
Nes Café Pool Cam
While a lot less scenic than the other Amsterdam webcams, the webcam in the Nes Café (not affiliated with the instant coffee people in any way) offers a view into one of the city's popular cafés. It's only active during their opening hours, though. The webcam overlooks the pool table, so you can text your friends back home to see your perfect break.
The Overtoom, one of Amsterdam's longest and busiest streets, has series of three webcams set up along its length. These webcams take still images that are refreshed regularly on the website. The link below takes you to the java enabled webcam link, for those with older systems, a non-java link can be found from the home page of the website.
The website webcams.travel has a webcam overlooking Central Station and the river behind it. Like many Amsterdam webcams, this is a still image that updates regularly, while the page also contains up to date information on the weather in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam Cruise Ship Terminal
This webcam, with regularly updated still images shows a view of the Amsterdam cruise ship terminal for all those ship spotters out there or for those who just wish to get a look at where their cruise ship will be docking in the city. The page allows you to pan left and right using your mouse in order to get a proper look at the full length of some of the huge cruise ships that dock here.
The personal website if Canadian born Amsterdam resident Scott Owen provides a webcam looking out over Panamalaan in the eastern part of Amsterdam. The view mostly shows a car park but also shows a little of one of the canals as well as an up to date weather and temperature report.
The Hotel Pulitzer's room with a View offers a still image over Prinsengracht that is refreshed every two minutes. The webcam shows a one of Amsterdam's most picturesque canals complete with narrow houses and moored boats, and is a great way to see exactly what the view from your hotel rooms will be.
