It is fantastic what you see from the canals, that you might have missed if you just walked around. This building is proof that there are other buildings that do not have gables in Amsterdam.
We did a canalboat tour and when we arrived at the Brouwersgracht (Brewercanal) we saw the father and son warehouses. a pity it was raining
The row of palacial townhouses is considered the most opulent part of old Amsterdam. They are located on the Herengracht canal near the river Amstel.
It is interesting to walk along the canals and see the house boats on the water. You can rent these houseboats for your stay in Amsterdam.
I could spend a day just walking across the canals. I don't care if its winter, spring or summer. It is just beautiful.
I recommend travelling around the canals by either pedal boat or a tour. The architecture of the buildings, some as old as 350 years, are quite charming.
It's so nice to saunter along the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. One of the nicest is probably the so-called Herrengracht.
... with the old houses along the canal, the church, the cobbled streets and the typical little hot-dog seller's car.
Canals are all over this gorgeous city, and if you take a map, you can walk alongside loads of them, they are all very beautiful, and some have pubs alongside, where you can stop off for a beer.
there r lots of canal round Amsterdam.. it is easy to get loss.. building is pretty... but a bit of boring when u get it everywhere.. spring maght be a best time to visit..
The most comfortable way to see the bridges, the canals and the boathouses of Amsterdam is to take a canal cruise.
There are many streets running at angles. Some are short, some are longer. Learn the Canals and it will be a big help finding your destinations.
Around the Jordaan, you will find a lot of boat-houses in the canals... Just look at them and let your thoughts floating...
The canals really are quite beautiful. It's amazing to see how a city can have so much water all around it.
Last itme I was in Amsterdam ,it was cold & windy. Try to take with you something warm, altought in summer time, days are great to walk around in T-shirt
