We got to see this whilst taking a canal cruise but you can walk to it. It's has a good story about it if you take a tour boat.

This Tower has quite a history, first a main gate of Amsterdam in 1480 then a guard house in 1618 when a severe fire occurred, then rebuilt and used to mint coins in 1700. It does stand out when you're in the area and there...More

This is a very busy intersection, but traffic lights make it safe to navigate. The tower is impressive upon approach, looks well maintained, and is art of the scenic appeal of walking around Amsterdam

The Munt Tower stood out to be the landmark in Amstel canal areas. It was a traditional guard tower in the past. Currently it was just a landmark in the flower market and easy for identification by the tourists to search for directions.

One of Amsterdam's old time entrance points, the tower and guard house stand at what used to be called Sheeps Square. Lovingly maintained, very photogenic. Very busy intersection. Watch out for traffic and pickpockets.

The guide said this tower is part of the original city gates and is very old. It has 4 clicks that he says all have different times and when the bells go off it anyone's guess. It did look pretty cool and the quirky history...More

Very cool old tower. You can see it from a distance all around Amsterdam. It is very close to the flower market. We didn't go in. I don't even know if that was an option. It is also under some renovation right now.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
