There are many great canal streets, but the Brouwergracht seems to have the nicest looking canal houses. It is very close to the Centraal Station Area.

Brouwersgracht is one of Amsterdam's most beautiful canals. We took a walk through the Jordaan neighborhood which is a must when in Amsterdam. Beautiful canals lined with architectural gems dating back a few centuries. Back in the days this area was mainly for people with...More
