The Grand Canal House
Amsterdam, North Holland, Holland (Netherlands)
Additional Location Information
Probably the image most associated with the city of Amsterdam is that of elegant gabled mansions richly decorated and beautifully laid out facing the water. The Grand Singel Apartment is located in the centermost canal. The crescent-shaped rings of manmade waterways, Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht, called the Grachtengordel in Dutch, were built around the old heart of town during the 17th century's Dutch Golden Age.
During the Middle Age, the Singel served as a moat around the city until 1585 when Amsterdam expanded. The canal runs from the IJ bay, near Central Station, to the Muntplein square, where it meets the Amstel River.
The apartment is close to the picturesque 9-straatjes or nine little streets which cross these canals. They are fantastic for shopping, having great lunches and enjoying the typically Amsterdam cafés. The Anne Frank house is only a ten minute walk, the lovely Jordaan area is reachable within a five minute walk as well as the Central Station and Dam square.
It's easy to find many means of public transport especially trams. There are also buses and taxis, but then again, you are in a privilege position to access the endless display of hot spots around town. Art museums, theatres and beautiful architecture are all part of the Amsterdam scene and simply walking through the colourful neighbourhood’s offer is an exceptional cultural experience.
