“Well chosen name”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Walking in Amsterdam demands a lot a attention. Cars, bikes and trams drive in narrow streets and bicycle drivers are fearless. Beware !

“Lovely!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Took a river cruise and enjoyed the lovely tree-lined canal with beautiful houses lining it. One can also the Noordermarket(Northern Market) along the canal. Nearby is the Northern Church. The Western Church along this beautiful canal has a tall spire with a crown at the top.

“Beautiful canal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is such a beautiful tree lined canal/street. It was very quiet and the buildings were nice to see. Accordingly this was where the rich used to live. I would definately recommend have a walk along Prinsengracht, very romantic and scenic.

“Worth a walk along this canal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This, and the two adjoining canals are worth walking down particularly on a sunny day. For those with history bent, it is worth going to the Amsterdam Museum to learn their construction and use. The ex-warehouses now apartments make a good street frontage. Moreover there's some great cafes along the canal to sit in the sunshine and soak up the ambience and beverages.

“Lovely canal to Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Just a lovely canal to walk, much more peaceful than the center in the evening with many shops and great little atmospheric restaurants. Love it.
