Just beautiful. Very peaceful amid the hurly burly of the city. It doesn't feel rushed or chaotic. Well worth chilling out here.

Beautiful architecture, we took a boat trip meandering slowly along the canals, plenty of photo opportunities of these stunning buildings, very touristy I know but you have to do it even if just to get a different angle on the buildings.

Anne Frank House located here. Lots of cafes and people watching can be done. Can also watch the canal tour boats float by.

A walk along this canal (and others like the Keizersgracht and Herengracht) should be on all itineraries. Don't miss... this area is a Unesco Heritage Site for a reason.

Beautiful canal, definitely worth walking up and down. The Anne Frank Museum is on this canal and the houseboats are quintessential Amsterdam.
