This is the innermost and most prestigious of all Amsterdam canals. In its heyday, It was home to the richest merchants and government officials and also has the famous golden bend. Best visited as part of a canal cruise.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether

lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
