It's my city and I love living here. The canals are really beautiful and everything you want to see is within walking distance. Definitely WORTH visiting.

“Perfect spot to live”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We live on the Keizersgracht, near the river Amstel. It is a beautiful canal with old houses, mainly dated from the 17the century. In walking distance are musea, theatres, restaurants and everything a person could wish for.

“Nicest canal walk ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Even with cold weather, a nice breezy walk along Keizersgracht is simple enjoyment. The architecture is the finest of all. Even with more tourists than the other canals, still a simple experience to enjoy.

“Nice place to take photo & enjoy the canal atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

It is really pleasant to take a stroll along the canal, doing nothing just enjoy the special canal atmosphere in Amsterdam. It is a nice place to take photo both day & night. If you are not sure which part of canal to go, take a boat ride, they have both guided boat tour introducing the history of the canal and buildings & the casual one. (boats can be found near the Amsterdam Central or Rijksmuseum)

“Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Nice houses and history. Wealthy people lived here and it shows. Best seen up close I think but we did it by canal cruise.
