We were intriqued by the buildings that we found here,these former warehouses that are now residential dwellings look awesome with their red shuttered windows and the street and streets around Prinseneiland are just so nice. Located on an island ,it's a short tram ride from...More

At the risk of sounding like a heathen, if you're staying or visiting the area it worth looking at this area as it is pretty, but if you are staying elsewhere, I personally would look at the building in the area you're in rather than...More

Yes! In Amsterdam there are small islands. This one has my favourite yoga school Delightyoga and it's always great to walk in this neighbourhood with great architecture.

Step back in time and visit Prinseneiland in the center of Amsterdam. it is very artsy and one of my favorite places to be. A little farm is there as well and beautiful crooked homes from 1700

I hesitate to tell anyone else about this charming island oasis. We stayed here for a week and absolutely fell in love, as you can walk everywhere. 5 minutes to the Jordaan area, trams, etc, yet you are living in a very quiet residential neighborhood....More

The building with read shutters is nice and there are a few cute ones, but if you are short on time in Amsterdam it is not worth it. It is far from Downtown and not as interesting as other areas in old town. I would...More

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
