Actually, all the main canals, Hernegracht, Keizersgracht & Prinsengracht are beatiful. Walk anticlockwise from the station end. Cross and re-cross the bridges and wind around, look up to the gabled ends of the buildings. This is Amsterdam at its best. You will find fine houses, strange houseboats, beautiful churches, cats on doorsteps, small cafes, but few shops. Watch out for bicycles - they don't like pedestrians.
