What to say. One of several parallel canals and picture perfect. I suggest take a canal cruise, but also great to walk the canal paths.

You can ride both Keisersgracht and Prinzengracht by taking the inexpensive on-off canal boats. Pleasant, peaceful and informative. Great way to get acquainted with Amsterdam.

a city-view that is excellent and full of history as many of the canals in the city. This canal as much as any other features the grandeur of the Golden Age of Dutch history

Walking along this street takes you through the main areas of Amsterdam and some of the quieter areas which have beautiful canal side houses and restaurants.

The canal boat tour is a must. I've been to Amsterdam a couple of times and I do the canal boat tour every time!

if you like taking pictures of unique architectural designs on the roofs and fronts of houses, head down on Prinsengracht towards the Amstel or better yet take a canal cruise, they go there all day and part of the night.

The walk along the canal was great. Went in to the Tulip museum, learne a lot about it.A really beautiful canal to stroll or ride along with plenty of places to eat and drink.Also good for some shopping.

The canal itself was very picturesque, and not only this, there were many historical building around.There was the Amstel in the East, the Westerkerk church and Anne Frank House. Each and every location had its own charm and made a brilliant line.

Good area to stay when in Amsterdam. Very much central, close to each and every attraction. At the same time - quite and cozy.
