We live on the Keizersgracht, near the river Amstel. It is a beautiful canal with old houses, mainly dated from the 17the century. In walking distance are musea, theatres, restaurants and everything a person could wish for.

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.

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)

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

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.
