“It's a canal !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

So what's remarkable about Prinzengracht. Not all that much really. It's one of the major canals in Amsterdam's inner canal ring. There are many bridges from which you can take picturesque shots. Lots of buildings along Prinzengracht are both historic and well worth a snap or two. If you take a canal tour in the many, very comfortable boats that offer tgis service, you will almost certainly spend quite some tome on Prinzengracht.

Having said that ... hey, it's a canal!!

“Enjoyable walk, pleasant architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

One of the nicest canals to walk along in AMS. Simple architecture, great colors and some small gems of bars and cafes along the way. Altogether with herensgracht, a nice way to stroll.

“Could wander for hours!”

Even if you aren't looking for something in particular to do, you will come across something here! We wandered around for ages, constantly finding small museums, boutiques, bars and restaurants.
