Top ways to experience Bloemgracht and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Probably nicer in spring and summer, however in winter rather damp, leaf leaden and slippery roads, and not as picturesque.

We visited in late July when it was quite dry so we did not see as many flowers as we had hoped. It was still a pretty street and canal to walk past.

Bloemgracht is one of the many canals surrounding the centre of Amsterdam. It is very picturesque round here and it is very pleasant to walk alongside. There are bridges crossing the canal and there are some tourist boats running around as well.

If you are walking beside the canal stick to the pavement or walk against the flow of traffic so you can see bicycles, cars and lorries coming towards you so you don't get caught out!

BLOEMgracht (FLOWER canal) is one of so many canals in Amsterdam. it's NOT the canal with flower market. There's not really special canal except the houses on Bloemgracht 87-91, "De Drie Hendricken", Tripple Stepped Gable houses with three different gable stones form 1642.

Dinky little bridges criss-cross a tree-lined canal with numerous houseboats. Quintessentially Dutch.

This is the quintessential Amsterdam canal. Tree lined and very beautiful. We saw it at night and it was all lit up.

Bloemgracht is a smaller canal which runs between Prinsengracht to Lijnbaansgracht in the Jordaan district. I really like this small canal as its quiet with limited boat and vehicular traffic, allowing for really nice photographs and quiet walks.

The canal is lined with attractive canal houses and is a nice area during the warmer months when the trees lining the canal are filled with green leaves. You'll find lovely small bridge crossings with bicycles and planted flower pots. It is a really beautiful setting if you want the classic Amsterdam canal experience.

This area in the district of Jordaan is definitely my favourite. Quaint, peaceful and so beautiful with the canals tree lined. Listen out for the local church bell ringing on the hour. Lots of things to see do and eat here too.
