Great street along the canal with interesting architecture. However be careful of cars and bikes. We bought tickets to all the museums in the interesting " handbag" museum which is on the canal

This is a quiet part of the city, just outside the central core of the Palace and Dam Plaza. It is quiet and feels residential though there are shops, hotels and small museums sprinkled throughout.

If in Amsterdam, you must go there. The Herengracht is considered to be the most important canal in the city and around it one can find old houses, bridges and the most chique neighborhoods.

The canal tour was very informative and passed by all the points of interest. It was nice to get an overview of the city by canal and later on the HOHO.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
