Herengracht, Amsterdam

4.3
Adorning the picturesque streets of the city and providing river transportation, Herengracht winds past the homes of the rich, showcasing centuries-old houses and quaint cafes. Among all of Amsterdam's canals, this one is the finest and most fashionable. See important and historic sites, such as the mayor's residential quarters and a house where Peter the Great stayed. Snap a photo of the seven bridges of the Reguliersgracht, which--if viewed from a correct angle--give the impression of a tunnel. Look for the oldest residential house in the city--a small 1590 home with a stepped gable, overlooking the water.

    Each Canal is worth watching, but the Hereinbracht in my opinion has the most flair. To recommend in any case.

    Great place with a sublime atmosphere. If it's too windy to sit along the canal, they have an amazing secret garden in the back. The starter platter for two is also a perfect lunch snack. Definitely worth a visit.

    A good place to meet up with friends for drinks. The inner garden is a good relaxing spot on sunny days.

    Service was great and food was excellent. The staff were very accommodating and attentive. The special bitterball with pea soup and pork belly was amazing. The raw beef made table side with your choice of ingredients was unique and very tasty!
