you will see locals on their front steps or on the canal bridges at 5pm having happy hour or even grilling on the narrow sidewalks in front of their homes. true Amsterdam

along this noted canal, walking is probably safer than cycling, a good experience to exercise and switch off away from busier part of amstedl

We never get tired of going on canal cruises every time we are in Amsterdam. Although the buildings never change there always seems to be something different to see. This canal is always one of the busiest. They are a great way to relax away...More

Singel is a bit busier than the other main canals. Still has nice buildings along it, for sure. Just more foot traffic and noise. Less areas and benches to just sit along the canal. And a bit less peaceful. I found it to be my...More

I do find this canal to be a lot busier both in the streets each side and on the water. There are some lovely restaurants in teh streets around it. Many lovely canal houses to look at.

NOT recommend to buy bulbs in here!! They fooled me... go to the bottom for english. 球根や種を中心に、オランダのお土産物まで揃う賑やかな通りです。 が、結論から言うと、どんなに安かろうと、ここでの球根の購入は絶対にお勧めしません(怒) ドイツ在住ですので、日本から誰か遊びに来る時は必ず案内していましたが、17年の夏に初めて球根を買って秋に植え...いま大後悔中です。 普通のチューリップでは無く、変わったものだけが欲しかったので、写真にある通り、パロット咲きと、レンブラント咲きの色んな色が入った大袋を1つずつ購入して、庭に混植しました。 咲いたのは全部まったく同じ、極々普通の赤いチューリップ。 普通のチューリップなら、半値以下でどこででも手に入るので、とんでもないぼったくり、明らかな詐欺です。 悲しいやら悔しいやら...... シンゲルは見るだけなら面白いかと思いますが、パッケージ写真と同じ花が咲くことを期待するのなら、球根の購入はシンゲルではなく、きちんとしたお店で購入することを強くおすすめします。 I'm VERY disappointed to see the actual flower after I planted the tulips which I bought in here last summer.

All of the canals in Amsterdam are well worth walking along. On the Singel you will find the quite famous "Pussy Boat" the sanctuary for stray cats. There are also lots of cafes and small bars which make ideal spots to take a break on...More

It was an interesting experience for us, to visit the single canal, we took a trip by boat here, and could see the other side of Amsterdam City from the River. Something new to us and really enjoyed our time here

By experience I mean walk along side of it. Particularly in the evening. The houses are of a friendly size that are livable. Some of them lean due to unstable foundations. I saw a house that was a doorway wide. Not intimidating mansions. The small...More
