“Beautiful Scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

"De Amstel", you think only Magere brug, Hermitage, Carre, Stopera etc. They are all in the city. When you have more time to take a bike and just cycleling a long the river bank to Oude kerk, you will see that amstel has more to enjoy. There is a lot of beautiful building a long the river bank. In the summer there is also rowing championship. You can also take a rest at some spots along the river. Visit "Wester Amstel" and take a walk in the garden.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

The river that gives Amsterdam its name. Slowly comes into the city from the southeast, many beautiful places and views. Best enjoyed on a boat, either a tour boat your own dinghy.

“Essence of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We were advised to walk along the Amstel to really get a "feel" for Amsterdam, and we really felt connected to the city after spending a couple of hours doing this.

“Not to be missed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

When you walk from the Central Station to the Zeedijk, the Nieuwmarkt and then to the Waterloo market, you will stumble upon the wonderful canal the Amstel. It's perfect to stroll, watch the many bridges and make pictures. And lots of nice restaurant and cafes to take a break.
