“wonderful old merchant houses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

This canal holds special memories for me as my grandmother used to live here - good to see her old house again from the outside, albeit inside, it's now been carved up into very expensive apartments

“A relaxing walk along the 'gentlemen's canal'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

I used to stay at a hotel on Herengracht (the Ambassade) and always loved the walk along the canal, particularly at quiet times, when one can appreciate the beauty of the large buildings and the tranquility of the area. I still enjoy the walk along this canal in one of the most beautiful areas of the City.

“Clean & Nice Street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Clean & Nice street to walk around, especially if you are into photography. Close by the Dam and the place of action, but far enough to be quieter than the Dam.
