Brouwersgracht, Amsterdam

4.8
Opt for a scenic stroll along Brouwersgracht, a canal in Amsterdam and one of the city's most beautiful streets. Named for its prevalence of breweries in the 16th and 17th centuries, it is still home to a number of breweries and distilleries where you can grab a drink. The street once housed warehouses that stored and processed goods such as leather, coffee, whale oil, and spices. You'll notice a few of these still standing along the canal today, fine examples of functioning warehouses. Other architectural attractions include the picturesque rows of unique historical houses and a narrow corridor that leads to hidden church.

  • Strolling through the Joordan district we reach the Brouwersgracht canal (or brewers), which impressed us as the most beautiful in the city, both by the canal itself and by the surrounding landscape. it was a pleasure to tour that picturesque and beautiful area.
