Canals • Shopping • Historic
Surrounding Amsterdam's historic center, Grachtengordel provides the best views of the city's canals plus access to shopping, restaurants, nightlife and culture. Wander through the labyrinth-like streets for historic surprises, including 17th century canal houses and fanciful carvings of days past. Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein squares are crowded tourist hotspots, but venture off the beaten path to find quaint, vintage shops and cozy cafes.
