“Nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Great place to take a walk. It's one of the many channels that make Amsterdam so unique. I recommend to go for all its length.

“Our Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed a week in an apartment on the Herengracht. It was a fantastic location with everything close by, lovely in itself, and very beautiful.

“together with Keizersgracht worth the walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

just stroll along this canal and see the locals living there and go to the areas where you are the only tourist. See how the locals enjoy living there. Just be careful not to start envying them ;)

“I love the canals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

This is another canal which is beautiful. Go walking around the city and that is all you see, beautiful canals and nice photos you can make on them. Just can't get enough of it.

“Dont forget the Diver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

After the Prinsengracht, I love the Herengracht. There is still a Viskhausje (Fish House) on the bridge at the Utrechsestraat crossing, which I remember from 40 years ago (although it iss now up-market) This part of Amsterdam is peaceful and quiet yet each major crossing produces more interesting cafes, bars and shops.
