“Typical Postcard View of Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

One of the canals in the ring in Amsterdam, it is picture postcard as you imagine the city to be, canal, bridges, trees, bicyles, cobbles, traditional Dutch tall narrow, gabled buildings, shops, cafes and the famous Westerkirk and Anne Frank's house. The whole area is brought alive in Anne's diary so good to see the area from a historical perspective as well. Lovely to amble along or view from a canl boat trip.

“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!!

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.
