A nice quiet part of Amsterdam which is a pleasure to just chill out away from the crowds in the town center.
A few small shops that have been there for years and when you look in their windows you wonder why they have managed to stay viable.
Well worth a visit though.

This canal is lined with beautiful houses.
However the best way to look at them is from the water, so take a canaltour. They are the prettiest in the evening, when the houses are lighted and you can see also the beautiful interior through the large open windows! A sight to behold!!!

Herengracht was a canal we spent a lot of time by. The tram stop was right there and when we got off there were cafes to sit and watch the world go by. Also a good stop to get off to buy shoes at the many shoe shops in the area.
Wandering, sitting, watching the canal traffic, wandering some more - lovely area to spend some time.

It is a great walk, where you can look at wonderful Dutch architecture. Flower boxes in the Canals provide a great frame for picture perfect canals. Sit in a neighborhood cafe and enjoy the view. On the. Way back, take one of the perpendicular streets to get back and enjoy the shops and ambiance.

I've seen this area in a lot of photos particularly over the canal on the bridge. I wanted to go and get some nice photos of my own and I am happy I did because it is such a nice place. Over looking the Herengracht on the bridge especially in the night time is heaven.
