Very nice spot to visit

Very nice inland waterway. Picturesque and quiet. One of the places you can duck away to and lose the crowds. Easy walking distances and friendly people to watch and say hello to.

Right next to Jordaan, this quiet Canal area offers one a great venue for strolling. It is close to Anne Frank House where one can make it a past time to watch lines wait in line and snaking to visit the attraction and Westkerk. Many visitors stop to take photos as they shop, stop to relax and have a coffee... More

I live on the prinsengracht and in my neighbourhood it is very crowded with locals,and tourists. I love the prinsengracht but the keizersgracht, herengracht, single and all the other canals are nice too! Spread out a little bit. And please don't walk side by side in the middle of the road. On the other hand: it is close to the... More

Do not miss to ride a bike to visit every corner of street in the downtown. Biking is the easiest way can reach everywhere than to take boat. Lovely city and nice people with great beers. Suggest visit time will be in April or May. It's worth to pay 2nd visit or 3rd visit.

A canal ride is not to be missed in Amsterdam. Pick a sunny day, as the tops of the ceiling are windows and there are two areas for vantage points outside the seating areas. Take the Orange boat which stops at many places.

We stayed in an apartment on Prinsengracht while in Amsterdam, and absolutely loved the neighborhood. It's only a few blocks away from the very touristy areas, but you feel like you're a world away. Very much worth walking through on a nice day.

We twice dined canal-side on the Prinsengrach. On one of our two visits, a jazz band played on a platform on the water, just a block away from the Anne Frank House. Quite possibly the nicest canal area in Amsterdam. The gift shop at the Tulip Museum had some nice items for souvenir shoppers.

This is my favorite part of Amsterdam. Well, this and Jordaan which is right next to it. Great small antique stores, design stores, independent clothing stores, etc. No large chain places. No large groups of partiers. Fewer crowds. Laid back feel but very hip area. Stayed at the Andaz on Prinsengracht which was perfect.
