  • The Prinsengracht, literally Prince's Canal, is one of the 4 channels that make up the Grachtengordel, the so-called Circle of Channels, declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2013. Named after William I, Prince of Orange, it is the outermost, longest and most recent, excavated in the second half of the 17th century. A stop on all the canal cruises, along its banks you can admire beautiful buildings dating back to the golden century, many houseboats, as well as important attractions, such as the House of Anne Frank, the Museum of the House of Floating and the Westerkerk, the Protestant church with its Tower, immortalized in a myriad of photos. It is definitely our favorite channel, a relaxing walk both day and evening, to admire characteristic views of this particular city.

  • It is the outermost canal that has been recognized as a World Heritage Site. In the old days, warehouses were lined up. Of course not now. The canal is an essential part of amsterdam sightseeing. Whether you're on a cruise or strolling along the canal, amsterdam is the most impressive place to be.

  • Prinsengracht is 1 of the 4 principle canals that make up the UNESCO World Heritage - Grachtengordel, a semi-circular group of parallel canals that form the Canal Ring in the city centre of Amsterdam. We recently visited Amsterdam and very much enjoyed quite a few walks along Prinsengracht. This is the outer most of Grachtengordel, it is a beautiful canal with restaurants, cafes, bars, coffee shops, boutique and other shops as well as important sightseeing like Anne Frank House and Westerkerk. One of the things we greatly enjoyed about areas of Prinsengracht during our mid-October visit were the turning of the leaves as Autumn foliage season finally arrived. There were some very nice spots just south of Westerkerk and a highly photogenic area at the Prinsengracht and Brouwersgracht. In the end, each of the Grachtengordel canals as well as the many smaller canals that patch together the city centre of Amsterdam, are enjoyable to visit and spend time. However, Prinsengracht may just be my favourite of the lot.
