famous Dutch Photography Festival near Amsterdam


Photo Festival Naarden

FotoFestival Naarden (FFN) is the oldest photo festival in The Netherlands and one of the largest, focussing on Dutch photography by new talents as well as established artists.

The theme of the festival this year is:
Don’t stay here – Dutch photography on the move
The festival wants to show the vision of Dutch photographers on the world.

The festival is located on several locations in the old centre of Naarden, which is an old  walled city in the shape of a star surrounded by water (see the map). The centre is very authentic, with small streets with beautiful houses and some nice restaurants. The fortress walls are beautifully restored, they form an interesting park around the centre of Naarden and are worth a visit in itself.
