This canal is the longest of the central canals that help to shape the city, which include Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Singel. Named after the Prince of Orange, this body of water is noted for the canal houses built alongside it during the Dutch Golden Age.

  • Lovely old church turned into concerthall, saw some great music there.
  • A lovely old church with excellent acoustics.
  • Another example of great architecture in this old/new Amsterdam
  • Perfect location for intimate concerts.
  • A nice area for a few quick photos. You will find a large number of ships, some old and some new, along these canals. However don't expect anything more than that.
