The most beautiful of Amsterdam’s canals! It’s more narrow and much more intimate than the other canals that ring the city center. Don’t miss it! Also, take a boat ride while you are there! This is a great place to walk around and enjoy the beautiful views and the people. The views at night are even more picturesque if we must say – the lights off the water are magical.
