“A pleasant stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

A lovely canal full of character, well worth 20 minutes of your time on a great spring day. No great highlights but just very relaxing.

Great canal to walk down - lots of shops, very charming. Tulip Museum and Noordmarkt flea market (Mondays when we were there) recommended. Jordaan area full of tucked away treasures.

“Beautiful canal”

Near Anne Frank house. Take a stroll along the canal. Note the variety of styles in the gables of the houses.
