Excellent spot in Amsterdam, I always go by on my way to work and enjoy the view every second. Enjoy the view in summer/autumn/winter or spring, all are excellent.

The walk along the canal was great. Went in to the Tulip museum, learne a lot about it, and to the Cheese museum also. What a treat!!

It's fun, it's attractive and it's great to walk along such unusual streets like no where else. Give yourself plenty of time as it is busy, especially in the tourist months, but there is a whole myriad of cafes and places to stop and people watch.

Canals are everything in Amsterdam and Prinsengracht gives views of most beaituful ones. The streets around the canals are very narrow so watch the bikes!

Amsterdam and her canals were just beautiful. The city is very easy to navigate, just follow the canals.

You can rent a boat and go in the canal. Cool activity. Very busy on August 2nd due to a parade. Clean road.

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.
