Walked about this canal area sightseeing and enjoyed the views of water activities and street scene. It is a pretty area with lots of historic buildings along the canal as well as shops and restaurants. You just need to walk and enjoy the scene. Off of this canal is the easily sighted landmark of the Westerkerk with its tall tower and distinctive blue crown. If lost look for it and match up with your map. The canal is right in the famous Jordaan area and runs parallel to the Prinscengracht. You also can rent a bike and see the area easily. Or take a canal boat. Lots of ways to enjoy it.

This is in a way, the middle of the three canals that circuit Amsterdam. It was was perhaps the most interesting because there seemed to be fewer tour boats than the other canals, and seemingly more. Little side streets waiting to be "discovered" it was certainly a wonderful canal overlooked by one's apartment windows. Those big old Dutch windows ( to save on weight of buildings?) are marvellous for the Dutch equivalent of people watching - especially when it is snowing!! There is still much of the pathways of the Keizersgracht to be discovered - what a great opportunity to anticipate!

We bought the canal 'hop on hop off' ticket. There was 4 routes available each stopping at many of the well know sights. We did the red, green and blue routes.
