Views from the rooftop bars in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a very low-built city, so even though the rooftop bars are often not sky-high, they are high enough to create a stunning view over Amsterdam and its surroundings.

The view you get from the rooftop bars in Amsterdam is usually the city's rooftops and over the canals.
