3,466 Reviews

Amsterdam’s Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)—a charming 17th-century UNESCO World Heritage Site—is probably best known for its picturesque canals. Comprised of three rings of semicircular waterways that are bisected by smaller canals radiating from the middle, like the spokes on a very Dutch bicycle wheel, the Canal Ring is crisscrossed by hundreds of bridges which connect these Dutch Golden Age islands.
