Just great to stroll along the canals and discover those peaceful and elegant canal houses! Welcoming staff and attractive handicrafts in some of them.

Much of Amsterdam's charm lies in the canal life of the houseboats with all the flowers and plants on them. Some even have green roofs and solar on top adding toothier cache as "modernized relics of the past". Beautiful buildings line the canals and among...More

Loved the houseboats with all the flowers and plants on them. Beautiful buildings lining the canals you can spend hours just soaking in the scenery and looking at the wonderful architecture. The houses are narrow but deep.

Grand houses, wonderfully detailed architecture and along Prinsengracht canal, this area is pretty and blossoms with characters. Numerous boats and houseboats tethered to the watersides. Prinsengracht is the third and outermost of the three primary canals in Amsterdam city.

This was one of our favourite stretches for a walk and explore. Some of the houseboats were especially nice to see.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Both the canal and the street wrap around the city center on the west, south and east. The Jordaan, where we stayed for a week on house boat in mMay, is in the west, Great neighborhood location.

Prinsensgracht is one of the longest "gracht". You can hire a bike to see as much as possible.

A great walking city. Very safe. My teenage nieces walks on their own even deep in the night. If pickpocketting reaches the evening news, it says enough about the city. Have fun in amazing amsterdam.
