When you think of Amsterdam, you think of the canals; the city consists of a network of beautiful canals, which are on the Unesco World Heritage List. Walk, cycle, rent a boat with friends or join one of the canal tours and see Amsterdam from the water.
Horseshoe-shaped canals run from the city centre, which is called the Grachtengordel. The Singel is the first of these canals and was originally the canal that surrounded the city centre. Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht form the core of the ring of canals. Like spokes of a wheel, these canals are intersected by streets, bridges and smaller canals.

The romantic canals and countless bridges will make you instantly fall in love with the city!Continue reading “Explore the canals”
