It is nice canal cruise in the afternoon and makes you sleepy as we cruise along. It is interesting to see all the buildings along the canal. Impressive how the busy the canals are and trees and flowers are everywhere. We get to see a lot of buildings, houses, church and so on in this cruise. Beautiful!

This is the main beauty of Amsterdam. Very well maintained canals are there with well designed and colorful bank and precinct. One can have cycle ride or boat ride.

There are lots of canals in Amsterdam.This is oner of the nicest, The buildings on either side of the canal are old and impressive. A boat ride through this canal and other canals is a nice thing to do.

Located in the area of Magere Brug is this former Roman Catholic Church. It has been renovated; from the outside is is neo Barogue, but the inside is stunning. The acoustics are great. It is primarily rented out for special functions: weddings and musical productions. A great place to see.

This canal and street are one of the outer rings of Amsterdam. The architecture style is a little different, more mixes of styles, and warehouses now converted to cafes and hotel. Its an interesting mix, and good to stroll on a sunny day. Anne Frank museum is on this street, so if you have some time you can walk to... More

While it is peaceful, there are many locations around many of the canals which provide a similar ambience. If in the area, why not enjoy it? But, I wouldn't recommend going out of the way, as one can find this "scene" in and around most of the canals.

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.
