    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.

    The city of Amsterdam is a maze of canals. These canals are one of the major attractions of the 'Venice of the North'.

    I loved the canals in Amsterdam...they made for great photos and atmosphere... :)

    You can go on a boat cruise through the canals...I recommend it for a different view of the city.

    In the city centre there are lots of canals. You will have great views over them. And the houses, trees, boats....

    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.

    The canals really are quite beautiful. It's amazing to see how a city can have so much water all around it.

    Around the Jordaan, you will find a lot of boat-houses in the canals... Just look at them and let your thoughts floating...
