“The Garden Which is the Nearest to God” is the title of the temporary platform installed by artist Taturo Atzu on the roof of the Oudekerk, in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. It is gone now, but the tower of the church provides a similar view every year from April to September.

NDSM Werf is an area in Amsterdam Noord that used to be a derelict shipyard but has been converted into a space for underground culture and events. It is on the other side of the IJ river from the center of Amsterdam but there are frequent (and free) ferries to go there.

After my meeting, I had a bit of time left in Frankfurt before taking the train back to Amsterdam. I walked to the Römerberg in the Old Town then looped back to the banking district along the Main River.

The Main Tower is a 200m skyscraper in the banking district of Frankfurt, in Germany. Its roof is an outdoor observation deck with a great view on  the city.
