“Perfect place to walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Look for a nice cafe (there are a lot) to sit next to the canal and enjoy watching the boats go by. There are many canals and I got to a point in which all streets look the same. General recommendation for the city: get a bike, car parking places are expensive, the free ones are just a few and they're far.

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Nice and peaceful area to hang out. Stopped here while on a tour, really like it. Not an area to drive in though, most of Amsterdam is congested, tight streets and expensive parking.

“An interesting canal to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

An interesting walk in the middle of Amsterdam. The bridges and houses are fascinating. The way the lean. The children were fascinated in the hoists at the top of each house. The house boats were varied. We took the canal bus later and the view from the canals around the city is worthwhile.

“prinsen gracht one of the great Amsterdam canals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Nice the old canals in Amsterdam like the prinsen gracht showing the history of this city. Still a lot of watertraffic in these canals.
All houses are build on "wooden palen" which are always below the water suface on top the the houses are build.
