Herengracht, Amsterdam

4.4
#2 of 9 in Nature in Amsterdam
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.

  • The Gentleman River is one of the 4 concentric, half-loop rivers in Amsterdam, between the singer River and the emperor's canal. The most famous section of the Gentleman River is the "golden transition" of many mansions, which can be seen on the two sides of the canal, which is more luxurious and refined than the other river areas. Gentleman River There is also a number that can be seen at one time to see 15 bridges bridge girder, unfortunately, I took the boat did not grasp the opportunity and angle, did not take this spectacle.

  • Really big, beautiful and cozy place! Great for an evening with friends and some chatting. Really good cocktails.
  • 4 stars for the secret garden! I just had beers & snacks and were ok but the place was so nice and also service was ok. Super recommended for summer nights!!
  • Really lovely place, nice staff and good food.
  • Excellent place with amazing food and wine. The truffle ravioli was simply the best I've ever had and the starter (watermelon and feta cheese salad) was also very tasty. My partner was also very happy with this choices of starter and main. The staff were nice and although our total bill was a bit higher than usual, it was 100% worth it. Will definitely go back when I visit Amsterdam again.
  • They are so unorganized that they run behind us in the middle of street to charge us a bill that wasn't ours because we have already paid the bill before. Very expensive drinks and food
