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
... with the old houses along the canal, the church, the cobbled streets and the typical little hot-dog seller's car.
It's so nice to saunter along the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. One of the nicest is probably the so-called Herrengracht.
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.
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.
The most comfortable way to see the bridges, the canals and the boathouses of Amsterdam is to take a canal cruise.
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.
I usually get lost and cannot make any vidsual difference among bridges & canals in Amsterdam. Love walking around them
There are a lot of canals in Amsterdam.
So take a canal cruise and you will be able
to see the city in a unique way.
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.
I could spend a day just walking across the canals. I don't care if its winter, spring or summer. It is just beautiful.
