#3 of 11 in Nature in Amsterdam
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.

  • Nice experience to cruise through Emperor's Canal. All the canals in Amsterdam CBD are interconnected and they simply presented the best view of Amsterdam.  more »
  • Seeing the waterways in the city of Amsterdam and learning their history was very interesting. I was surprised that the city was built practically on water, so to say.  more »

  • Enjoy the canal and its beauty by foot. Alternative through the canal cruises but walk on a pleasant evening is the best.
