This is an amazing animation from the Amsterdam City Archives showing the growth of Amsterdam during the Golden Age from 1600 until 1700.
It’s the time when the Grachtengordel – the canal belt – was formed. Watch how the city took its actual shape.
Thanks for sharing. This was fascinating. Amazing what can be done today with technology. (Suzanne)
Amsterdam was one of my favorite places in Europe. I hope to get back there someday.
What a fascinating video – thanks for sharing it!
