The people who live along the city's widest channel, Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht), can enter their homes directly from their boats when the weather's good. Take a walk through the quaint streets and stop by a charming cafe, or tour the site to find numerous important buildings. Look for an 1854 Syrian Orthodox church, ornamented with Neo-Gothic elements. See 17th-century warehouses with stepped gables that were once used for storing whaling products, and today host luxury apartments. You can also take a boat tour to learn the history and highlights of the area.

  • There is no shortage of canal tour boats around Amsterdam. We took a private tour for a couple of hours and enjoyed it immensely. What a great way to see the city from a totally different perspective.

  • One of the main canals of Amsterdam, Emperor's Canal has been named after Emperor Maximilian of Austria. With a width of 31 meters, it is the widest canal in the inner city. Summers are a good time for sailing on this canal and in winters, when it freezes, it becomes a popular spot for ice skating for both tourists and locals.
  • Amazing street ...
  • Its a very big square, you can find a lot of coffee shops over there .. its very intresting in the Christmas .. you can spend a lot of times sitting on the gras 👍❤😉
