Walking or floating along the Herengracht canal is the epitome of old Amsterdam - with beautiful, well maintained, fully occupied townhouses in a great location for walking.

Beautiful canal in the centre of Amsterdam. It's nice to explore it both from the boat and on foot. Buildings and bridges (such as Bridge of 15 bridges) are also very beautiful.

Loved walking and exploring along the entire length of Herengracht - there's so much to see and the nice bit is that people actually live along here so its actually unspoilt and utterly charming.

Even in the hottest weather because of the tall buildings you can find shade whilst exploring this waterway on foot.

This historical canal area is filled with impressive architecture and stories from the past and is rightly dubbed Amsterdam's golden mile. Lovely walk along the canal with lots of shops and cafes along both sides of this very long canal road. Must see.

My wife and I walked along this canal often while staying at the Ambassade Hotel. It is a pleasant area to walk and provides many classic Amsterdam views.

This is a nice canal to stroll along or travel on in a boat. It is typical Amsterdam and has beautiful row houses.

Either by walking or on a canal boat trip, the Herengracht was a historic trip to see the fascinating history of Amsterdam - highly recommended.

All the canals are truly lovely, all alike yet all different. The homes, restaurants and the buildings are all similar yet different. Another pretty area to just walk around and joy the views.
