Canal Belt Highlights
Spend a few hours wandering this most delightful of Amsterdam districts at your leisure. You will be surprised how quiet and peaceful it is considering you are in the very centre of one of Europe’s highest populated capital cities.
With more than 60 museums and art galleries to visit, Amsterdam is definitely not short of things to do during your stay. You can find out all about how and why the distinctive Canal Belt was constructed at the fascinating Canal House Museum which lies at 386 Herengracht. You will be whisked back in time by four hundred years and be entertained by the interactive multimedia exhibits here. Much of the building has been classically restored and you are sure to love the high ceilings, opulent chandeliers and charming courtyard garden at the rear.
To find out more about the city’s incredibly rich history head straight to the Amsterdam Historical Museum which is also now known simply as the Amsterdam Museum. The entrance can be found on Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, just a few second’s walk from the most central canal ring, Singel.
Other attractions to explore in the area are the world famous Anne Frank House at 263 Prinsengracht which is the most visited museum in the Netherlands. The Bible Museum at 366- 368 Herengracht and the delightfully random Cat Museum (Kat Kabinet) at 497 Herengracht are also worth a look if you have time.
