Create an itinerary including Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht)
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.
