Our Airbnb was on this canal and I think it was the perfect location. Peaceful area, yet so close to everything. We walked the entire Singel on both sides, which everyone should do as the atmosphere changes as you walk along. Lots are great cafes...More

Took a canal trip which was wonderful. Went through a lot of the canals and out into the harbor a bit. Definitely worth it.

We walked the entire length of the Singel, both sides. Entirely beautiful and very interesting. Each bridge crossing it is different and the each building is drifferent from the others. A must walk.

We have a lot of events on the canal side and perhaps is the most famous as the called the Concert on the Prinsengracht. Its upfront the Pulitzer Hotel on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam, famous indeed.

Any city takes on a different character when viewed from the water, Amsterdam is no different. However, unlike a lake or ocean front, the canals of Amsterdam - and thus the city itself - must be floated upon to be truly appreciated.

Our hotel Estherea was located right on Singel canal so we were able to enjoy it in the morning before all the bicycles and boats pass by. Beautiful canal, very authentic feeling, not much tourists in this area

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

The menu is short and all the food is freshly made as ordered and presented with care. The day I visited, the cook was an artist and took extra trouble to serve a beautiful crepe. I don't remember the menu, but I know I... More
