The Islands (De Eilanden)
Westelijke Eilanden are three islands in the Centrum district of Amsterdam: Bickerseiland, Prinseneiland and Realeneiland. They are located to the south of the IJ and the Zeeheldenbuurt, to the north of the railway line between Central Station and Amsterdam-Sloterdijk, to the west of the Westerdok and to the east of the Planciusbuurt on the Westerkanaal. The Westelijke Eilanden form the core of the Golden Reael area, which also includes the adjacent Westerdok island, the Haarlemmerbuurt and the Planciusbuurt.

The Westelijke Eilanden form a small world apart from the city. They are suitable for walks, which Joannes Antonides van der Goes recommended in a poem, Ystroom, as early as 1671. They are often used for filming. There have always been warehouses and shipyards on the Westelijke Eilanden. They formed an important part of the atmosphere on the islands, a combination of working and living. The islands are sometimes called the "Mokum Archipelago".

Amsterdam, Posthoornkerk (Onze Lieve Vrouwe Onbevlekt Ontvangen)
The architect of the Posthoornkerk was P.J.H. Cuypers, who designed the building in 1860. The church replaced the hidden church De Posthoorn on the Prinsengracht, from which the name was taken over, and was established in two phases; The choir, transept, crossing tower and nave were built between 1860 and 1863, while the church was completed with a two-tower front from 1887 to 1889. Because the church could not be built free-standing, it was made extra high. To make optimal use of the limited space, the church was provided with galleries above the side aisles on the inside. While the exterior is in neo-Gothic style, the late Romanesque Munsterkerk in Roermond was the model for the interior.
