We were on the Hop-On-Hop-Off Canal tour and had a chance to get off and view the sights on the Amstel River. We were in the area of the Opera House and the Blue Bridge. I remember a number of other sights I would have...More
It was never still ...it was so interesting with the different boats and water vessels that use the river. The bridges are also special to learn the history and watch them raise when the boats needed to pass. Just sit and enjoy.
Walk along and across the Amstel for wonderful views of the historic bridge and the modern Opera House. The Hermitage Museum overlooks the Amstel, keep walking and you will come to the Hortus Botanicus
Great river to see. all the boats and then all the bridges and you can see a lot from every where. even a few church stepals.there are some that you see are fishing there. a great place to go on a boat ride to see...More
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.

Put on your comfortable shoes and be ready to walk Amsterdam in September!- Depending where you are staying, I suggest you go to the Hermitage Museum on Amstel 51, along the scenic Amstel river where you can see several bridges, houseboats, mansions and more. Nearby Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht – are a must. Built in the 17th century during the Dutch Golden Age, built mainly for residential purposes. You will enjoy admiring the beautiful mansions that line the streets. WILLET- HOLTHUYSEN MUSEUM on Herengracht 605, is a display of grandeur and wealth of its previous owners. Go for a nice High Tea- they claim to have the best in Amsterdam :-) (and visit the more than 5,000 bags many owned by famous personalities) at the Tassen Museum Hendrikje- Museum of Bags and Purses on Herengracht 573. The famous Anne Frank House is in Prinsengracht 263-267; Keizersgracht (Emperor's canal), 31 meters wide and the widest of the 3 canals. It was named after Emperor Maximilian of Austria. There is so much to see so get a guide book and read all about the many things you can do during your visit. Don't foget to visit the KONINKLIJK PALEIS ( Royal Palace) in the Dam area. It was once called the 8th wonder of the world by a local poet. It is magnificent! And while you're in the area, go and visit the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) beside it. Have a great trip to Amsterdam.
