One of the can’t miss canals in Amsterdam. If you’re wandering, it’s unlikely that you will miss it, but make sure and walk along regardless.

I loved the neigbourhood, the boathouses were so beautiful you can spend hours walking along the canal and taking photos. Some very nice bars and restaurants can heal you hunger or thirst during the walk.....

Sometimes we need to stay near the water and feeling better...A gracht could become the most interesting place for your eye, heart, and soul...

A group of us took a nice walk around. Spent time just watching the people and the boats on the canal. A couple of friends decided on the boat tour. City center was nice and clean, people are proud of their business and it shows.

De Duif is a church on the Prinsengracht area built in 1858 and used for events such as concerts and choirs. The area can be visited by canal boat where you can view the typical Amsterdam houses by the canal.

This is THE canal in the city! To truly appreciate it, a boat tour is a must! Seeing the city from the waterline is so memorable and beautiful. We loved it!

Delightful canal - the tall buildings, many crooked or leaning, reflected in the water. Small boats moored along some of the canal - definitely worth a slow stroll to take in the atmosphere.

Both the canal and the street wrap around the city center on the west, south and east. The Jordaan, where we stayed for a week on house boat in mMay, is in the west, Great neighborhood location.

Prinsensgracht is one of the longest "gracht". You can hire a bike to see as much as possible.

A great walking city. Very safe. My teenage nieces walks on their own even deep in the night. If pickpocketting reaches the evening news, it says enough about the city. Have fun in amazing amsterdam.
