De Duin is a beautiful place to visit, what makes it even more special is to attend the Sunday morning service of the local church community. There is always a stunningly beautiful choir accompanied by a great lady playing the piano!

De Duif is a beautiful little church on the Prinsengracht in neoclassical style. You'll easyly pass the church without noticing it. From the outside the church looks unassuming, so when you walk through the door you don't know what to expect. You'll be in for...More

Great place for a stroll in the summer/spring. Not sure how good this will be in the winter though! Definitely worth checking out.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Both the canal and the street wrap around the city center on the west, south and east. The Jordaan, where we stayed for a week on house boat in mMay, is in the west, Great neighborhood location.

Prinsensgracht is one of the longest "gracht". You can hire a bike to see as much as possible.

A great walking city. Very safe. My teenage nieces walks on their own even deep in the night. If pickpocketting reaches the evening news, it says enough about the city. Have fun in amazing amsterdam.
