Sonnenberg Canal House description

Sonnenberg is located on the Herengracht, in the historic centre of Amsterdam. Surrounded by the famous nine-streets, this historic canal house was built in 1649 for the Sonnenberg family. It is one of the few houses that still boast its original gable, which is a classical renaissance crow-stepped gable; this is a stair-step type of design at the top of the triangular gable-end of a building.

Not only the gable is still original, the interior with its solid oak beams as well as the winding staircase are original. It is not hard to imagine this Dutch merchant family doing business from this very location.

I highly recommend this beautifully appointed apartment, situated perfectly to enable you to walk to most attractions. The view from the large windows over looking the canal with the leaves rustling in the breeze was amazing. Wytse, the owner was very communicative and answered all...More

Wonderful place to stay, on the canal, to see the sights in Amsterdam. Lots of bicycles, keep your eyes open when crossing the streets.

We loved sipping our morning coffees in the window seat while looking down upon the boats floating by in the canal. It was quiet by night and bustling during the day; the perfect spot from which to explore all that Amsterdam has to offer. Close...More

About the neighbourhood
The most central spot imaginable, yet very quiet, nothing is more than a 15 minute walk away.

The Herengracht is the most beautiful of all the canals of the UNESCO heritage area of Amsterdam, and Sonnenberg is located on the most beautiful part of it and in the middle of the nine streets area of the canal belt.
Getting around
From this location every major sight is within 15 minutes walking distance.

This includes the train station, where trains can bring you to any destination in the Netherlands.

I strongly recommend leaving the car outside the city or not bringing one at all.
