The Northern Canals

Highly recommended
Cut from 1586 onwards, these nobly-named canals ("Emperor's", "Prince's", "Patricians'") have majestic quaysides, bordered by narrow gabled façades, opulent patrician residences, old warehouses and houseboats. Venture into the nearby Jordaan district and wander between the canals, taking in the House with the Heads, Bartolotti House and Anne Frank's House.
