Our hotel was on this canal. Like the area! I enjoyed the restaurants, shopping and short walk to Rembrandt square!

Herengracht canal is one of the most historically important canals in Amsterdam a it was the merchants passage through since the 17th century.

Even now to have an address along it's banks is considered highly desireable even mayors live here.

Huge houses, museums and even a consulate line the banks of the Herengracht. Beautiful views and a lovely place to walk.

The Herengracht (or patricians canal - after the leading merchants of Amsterdam) is the 1st of the 3 major canals in the center of the city. It's probably best viewed from a canal boat in the evening (looking up at the lit ceilings in some of those real old houses), but walking will do. Watch the bikes. What surprised us how one is able to park their car along the canal without actually ending up in it.
Back in the day, and still, the most prestigious part of the canal is the "Golden Bend" with double wide buildings, between Leidsestraat and Vijzelstraat. Most of the old buildings have turned into offices. No one can afford to live here privately.

Fine selection of seventeenth century canal houses adorn this canal and it is so lovely to watch the boats and the twinkling wavelets as you wander around.

If you like messing about in boats, or watching other people mess about in boats, then fine, otherwise, the Herengracht is a canal - like many other canals in Amsterdam.
