“View!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

I walked along here several times. It is a breathtaking spot especially if you sit down to relax and just look around. Worth a visit or walk through.

“Check out the KittenKabinett”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Lovely walk along the Herengracht to number 497 where you'll find a lovely museum which displays all things to do with cats. Pictures and sculptures all about cats. Not busy at all when we were there (February 2014) and only 6 euros to get in.
Also cats wandering about and asleep on cushions!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

On our visit to Amsterdam. we walked up and down the Herengracht several times and took the canal boats for a more relaxed travel and view of one of several main canals. Beautiful architecture of which there are so many wonderful historical buildings and houses, bridges, shops, streets etc the list is endless of what to see. People watching is good fun too. A must to visit!

“Fantastic canal to slow down and soak up the atmosphere”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Strolling down the tree lined, cobble stoned streets of the Herengracht was one of my favorite pastimes while in Amsterdam. Beautiful, picturesque homes line either side of the canal with plenty of photo taking opportunities. Canal boats often drift silently by as they pass underneath the numerous bridges crossing over this serene canal. You get a true idea of what living in Amsterdam is really like by letting the atmosphere wash over you while slowing down to explore one of the most stunning canals in Amsterdam.
