A really beautiful canal to stroll or ride along with plenty of places to eat and drink. Houses of Amsterdam along and in the canal make really interesting photos.

What a beautiful canal in Amsterdam. There was a concert stage set up on the side so the locals created a boat parking lot and filled all the private boats for the performances all afternoon and evening.

Very interesting part of Amsterdam. Best to explore with one of the many canal tours. Very nice old houses and churches long the banks of the canal and excellent for strolling, even during the late evening.

This canal along with surrounding canals are such a delight to meander while in Amsterdam. You're surrounded by people on bicycles, walking, local cafés, wine bars, little shops And overall just a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

It's a fantastic area to just wander around and admire the canals and boats. Very beautiful scenes for the photography fans. Also good for some shopping and chilling at cafes.

You'll end up using this street as a central navigation point but it is actually rather beautiful with a feeling of real Amsterdam. Watch out for the bicycles at all junctions.
