To walk or visit on a boat, good for a coffee with friends. Nice spots for pictures at sunset! Quiet and relaxing, except on Pride festival!

It is one of the three main canals in Amsterdam. It is quintessentially Amsterdam. The relaxing views and the gable of the buildings are what you picture when you think of this city. There are outdoor cafes and shops. So delighful

Beautiful canal to see and walk about. We watched the Gay Pride parade on this canal and also walked around it. Nice shops and restaurants and of course the canal itself is impressive.

This is a nice part of Amsterdam good restaurants mixed with small quaint shops. But during the gay pride celebration it gets too rowdy. Having said that it's a nice quiet place for coffee.

Went here for the Pridestream. Simply amazing experience with hundreds of boats going through the canal with people all around cheering them.

A beautifully, centrally located area. Has quite a few interesting cafes and restaurants. Leads to all the main shopping areas like Nine streets and Leiderstraat.

Thought it was going to just be another canal but it is better than the rest! Go in the Jordaan area, it is nicer there than the lower parts. Watch out for people biking though they will run you over. My girlfriend said shopping is good and there are lots of pubs in the area too.
