SAIL Amsterdam 2015

SAIL Amsterdam is a maritime event taking place every 5 years in Amsterdam, where boats from all over the world come to the Amsterdam harbour for a few days. Some of the ships can then be visited.

REM Eiland

REM Eiland is a platform that used to broadcast pirate TV and radio from the North Sea but that now sits near the IJ river in Houthaven, in Amsterdam West. The roof can be accessed freely and also has a restaurant. I was there during SAIL Amsterdam 2015, hence all the boats on the IJ.

Frankfurt: Old Town, Main River

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.
