De Duif, Amsterdam

Along De Duif, one of the city's main canals, you can view several monuments, historic architecture, and one of the city's popular quarters. 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. Walk beside the water's edge and enjoy the cultural offerings of the Jordaan neighborhood. You can stop by several tourist sites along the way, such as the Northern Church, Northern Market, Anne Frank House, Western Church, and Homomonument.

  • Next to the church De Duif, see Reguliersgracht channel which is very pretty, and which dates from 1664. He cut the three canals, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. At each bridge, great views of the canals and the architecture of the houses.
