“Nicest canal walk ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Even with cold weather, a nice breezy walk along Keizersgracht is simple enjoyment. The architecture is the finest of all. Even with more tourists than the other canals, still a simple experience to enjoy.

“Nice place to take photo & enjoy the canal atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

It is really pleasant to take a stroll along the canal, doing nothing just enjoy the special canal atmosphere in Amsterdam. It is a nice place to take photo both day & night. If you are not sure which part of canal to go, take a boat ride, they have both guided boat tour introducing the history of the canal and buildings & the casual one. (boats can be found near the Amsterdam Central or Rijksmuseum)

“Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Nice houses and history. Wealthy people lived here and it shows. Best seen up close I think but we did it by canal cruise.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

A great place to take a stroll or a canal boat ride. Lots of little cafes to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and the view. Don't forget to try the amazing hot chocolate at almost any cafe - with whipped cream of course. If you are lucky it will come decorated with a stroopwaffle. Enjoy the beautiful architecture of the canal homes. Many with their building date displayed on the front.

“Simply beautiful”

Our hotel room had a perfect view on the canal. We enjoyed it so much as well as the chimes from the church nearby. Just paradise...
