  • The Emperor's canal is one of the most gentleman in Amsterdam's 4 concentric and half-loop canals, between the canal and the Prince's River. Walking along the streets of the canal, you can appreciate the beautiful houses and the river scene. At the intersection of the emperor's Canal and the Boston River, an excellent three-hole arch (bridge 46), connected to a single-hole arch, is the most beautiful focal point on the emperor's canal.
