Very interesting. A canal boat trip is a must! Very picturesque and if you get a good guide, informative.

I feel that this is the quiet canal. I have walked the whole length of it just to quietly admire the houses and bridges along the way.

Take a trip along the canals in either a closed or open boat. There’s audio guide with a lot of information on the history of Amsterdam, a good way to learn the layout of the city.

Spent a few hours up and down this road at the side of the canal. More relaxed than the main streets but watch out for the cyclists they still travel fast so look before you cross.

Like many of the canal's in Amsterdam you can stroll along here watching the many boats go by. There are occasional cafe's along the canal but they tend to have limited seating

This bridge provides a particularly good water view, perfect for photographs! It is an example of many such places for great photography!

One of the main canals in Amsterdam. Homes alongside are very nice to see, it is elegant and feels historical.

The Keizergracht is one of the main canals in Amsterdam. Lined with beautiful homes from the 16th and 17th centuries. Very worth a nice walk!
