We stayed a week on a house boat on the Prinsengracht... and enjoyed every minute of it. There is a little bit of every thing on the canal... Anne Frank House, two churches, a market, shops and many bars and restaurants. Plus... it's very scenic, especially at night... with the street lights and house lights reflecting off the water.

This area contains restaurants, shops, stores, and a lovely canal with boats and lovers strolling along holding hands. It is a nice place to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Quiet and peaceful area. Beautiful canals, lovely and dainty old buildings. Great cafes and wonderful to walk around here. Go to the Nine Streets for awesome and local shopping! You will enjoy taking photos around here.

The Prinsengracht is great for strolling around and getting a feel for Amsterdam. It is a beautiful canal lined with typical Dutch houses and easily accessible with several tram lines.

Beautiful canals, good shopping and some great eateries. Its a must visit for a nice stroll. You can also see the buildings through the canal tour but this street deserves an hour long walk on its own,

This is the second visit for my wife and I to Amsterdam. We have visited many of the city's neighborhoods and decided to stay in the Prinsengracht this visit. The canals are beautiful, traffic is mostly pedestrians and bicyclists so noise is not an issue. It is close to the Central Station, shopping area of Nieuwendijk, and 10 minute walk... More

The Prinsengracht is a canal that flows around Amsterdam and is the one most found in pictures. It is located on the edge of the Jordaan District and also the canal in front of the Anne Frank House. When you visit, be sure to bring your camera to capture all the beauty!!!

Utterly charming. On a sunny day I can think of no nicer place to be. No tourist tat here, just beautiful buildings with picturesque canals and little coffee shops and cafes. It is less of a tourist magnet than the areas close to Dam Square but it is well worth the short walk. I preferred this area to the more... More
