Keizergracht (Emperor's Canal), Prinsengracht (Prince's Canal) and Herengracht (Gentlemen's Canal) are the three concentric ring canals that surround the old centre. Together with the Singel Canal they make a delightful walk but perhaps can be best appreciated from a canal cruise (which lasts about 90 minutes), where you can sit back in a glass-topped vessel, travel under picturesque bridges and marvel at the splendid architecture of the 17th- and 18th-century houses and warehouses with their impressive cornices and gables.

Visitors to Amsterdam will also enjoy the numerous fascinating individual shops to be found in this area, together with many inviting restaurants and bars. A cruise also gives visitors the chance to admire at close quarters the wealth of fascinating houseboats that line the canals, whilst enjoying wine and cheese, or perhaps indulging in a candlelit five-course dinner. This is also the optimum way to see Amsterdam's large and busy harbour.

There are also water taxis operating along the canals, which call at many of Amsterdam's top places of interest.
