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 !

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the

lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
