We saw some of this area from a canal boat tour, then later strolled around to admire the different building designs. It’s usually quiet and not too crowded. Sidewalks are narrow in most spots and there’s the occasional construction that we had to walk around. Overall it’s a nice area to take a relaxing stroll or bike ride.

What an intriguing city and interesting! If you don't want to pay to go to the museums just walk around it is FREE. So much to see and explore. Not my favourite in Europe, but beautiful.

I wish the city would take a better care to the very touristic area as I saw so many garbage laying around on the floor and for sure ending up in the canals.

There is no shortage of canal tour boats around Amsterdam. We took a private tour for a couple of hours and enjoyed it immensely. What a great way to see the city from a totally different perspective.

We took a boat trip which went along this canal. Later in the day we walked along it. Both were valuable allowing us to see the amazingly different and beautiful architectural styles of houses along the 2 sides.

Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht) is one of the better, more popular canals in Amsterdam. It's wide and that's probably the reason there are so many boats touring in it so often! The city is full of canals and this is just another, but it is a lovely one.

If you like museums and places of interest the best thing to do is to buy an Amsterdam pass which you can get for 1, 2 or 3 days. We bought the two day pass which is activated at your first venue and then lasts 48 hours. You get free admission to a load of attractions and free transport within Amsterdam plus a canal trip of an hour. The canal trip is by far the best way to see the canals and you use all of the major canals in the free trip. Herrengracht is by far the most interesting but that is personal.

A lovely way to travel around this part of the city and learn about it's history is on a canal cruise... Great photo opportunities, too.

Some of Amsterdamse Grandest houses and fanciest banks have their head offices on this the Emperors canal. I love walking along and around this canal and visiting my money at Bank Mees and Hope. You will see some fantastic examples of Grand Dutch homes and different styles of gables on the roofs, there's step,bell funnel, neck and raised cornice gables, all with the hook to lift furniture up the outside of the buildings as the staircases are so step and thin that they bring in the larger items through the windows, that's also why you'll notice that the buildings have a slight forward lean to assist in the easy raising of large items.

Nice experience to cruise through Emperor's Canal. All the canals in Amsterdam CBD are interconnected and they simply presented the best view of Amsterdam.
