Our hotel faced this canal, which radiates round the centre of Amsterdam, and it was lovely to look out of the window and see the houseboats and restaurant boats moving along, and the houses all along the canal are individual, with amazing gables and huge windows. Some have steps up to the front door, and most have cellars, which must... More

Enjoyed my visit here on a glass top boat trip which I believe was 9Euro for 1 hour. I found Amsterdam to be a very clean city, felt safe at all times and enjoyed admiring the character of the architecture. I never visited the 'seedy' area (not for me), but the flower market was large (would love to see it... More

We stayed in a vacation rental with a garden here and it was lovely. Beautiful area for strolling (though watch out for the bicycles because the sidewalks are quite narrow), and so convenient and pleasant for walking everywhere we wanted to go that the only time we took a bus in the city was upon our initial arrival, to get...

Many top attractions and restaurants can be found by this pretty canal. When people picture Amsterdam, this is the ideal image that comes to mind. Stop for a moment to take it all in.

Really well maintained part of the city, and seemingly a very classy one - stayed on this street in the andaz hotel, highly recommend the shops nearby too

I stayed on this street in a vacation flat and I enjoyed my stay here. Just up the road is the Anne Frank house and Monet museum. This is one of the main outer canal streets of Amsterdam and a perfect launch point to see the entire city.

If you are travelling for the first time to this beautiful city then I suggest you join this boat trip that will take you among others to the homeboat museum, Anne Frank House and the tulip museum. The tour lasts one hour and if you do it during the nighttime with all those lights, it will feel like you are... More
