One of the most famous canals in Amsterdam, it connects the Singel and Singelgracht. Home to many beautiful canal houses, don't miss photographing the beautiful window shutters on canal houses 188-196.

Take some time to get away from the business of the red light district and other canals near the tourist attractions in Amsterdam and go to the Brouwersgracht for lunch. It offers some of the best views in the city and is much less crowded than some of the other canals. It is a mostly residential area but is just... More

There are many picturesque tree-lined canals in A'dam, but this one stands out, maybe because of the historic old homes that line the canal, maybe for how close it is to the Centraal Station, or maybe due to the proliferation of restaurants in the area. It can be very entertaining to plant yourself aside this canal and just watch the... More

Taking a stroll down the streets lining the Brouwersgracht canal was an absolute delight. Beautiful houseboats line either side while bikes coast slightly past. Mostly residential houses line this canal which is a nice change from the busy streets of Amsterdam. The sunlight streams through the tree tops and shines off of the water as you watch the locals go... More

In my opinion, the Brouwersgracht offers one of the best canal views in Amsterdam. Several canals meet this Gracht, the houses are fine examples of the typical architecture.

I recently moved into this neighbourhood and absolutely love it. Great canal views, lots of shops and cafes along the Haarlemerstraat and adjacent streets. Not too many tourists yet probably because of the distance from the attractions. I hope it stays that way, a real gem!

This is another of the city's main canals, not far from the Singel, this like the others and full of fascinating things to see, fantastic buildings and the many boats moored along the canal, bicycles everywhere and above all I could breath serenity and tranquility.
