Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / North Holland Province / Amsterdam / Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht)
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.

Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht) reviews
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.
