We spent our first day in Amsterdam just walking along the canals and enjoying the sites. This was an especially lovely canal walk.

There are lots of shops and sights here. Certainly a place to visit and enjoy. This may be where we had that delicious pie.

“Perfect Place To View King's Day Boat Parade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Not only is Prinsengracht canal a lovely area to walk it is also one of the best places to watch the "boat parade" on King's day. There were many vendors selling food, music, and lots of fun for all!
