de Corner of the Brouwersgracht and Prinsengracht is one of the best views of the Amsterdam Canals, it really gives a good idea on how it was in the old days and the living proof that the city in still very much alive !

This is really what people think of when they think of Amsterdam--the tree-lined canals, houseboats, narrow canal-side lanes. Perfect for strolling and looking at the different styles of canal houses.

This canal goes from roughly the Singel near Central Station to Westerpark side. Most of the time tourists don't do this canal, I really like this one, especially by bike. Or walking with friends and a coffee to go. Lots of nice cafes in this route and great sightseeing of the original "grachtenpanden".

While you may spend most of your time in Amsterdam on the "larger" canals, try to find time to visit the Brouwersgracht. It's a very pretty canal for a stroll and the bridges are lovely.

This very pretty canal takes its name from the many breweries that dotted the banks in the 16th and 17th century. Its a nice walk from Centraal, and a nice route to take to the Noorderkerk Saturday market.

I liked the walk but it smells weed and sometimes it's too much! Loads of interesting shops including wine shops
