Singel, Amsterdam

4.5
#4 of 11 in Nature in Amsterdam
Until the Middle Ages, Singel--a picturesque canal--surrounded the Dutch capital. After the city expanded, the canal continued to act as a moat around the city center, and today it is the innermost canal of Amsterdam's ring of famous canals. Running from the IJ lake near the city's central train station to Muntplein Square, where the water joins the Amstel River, the canal cuts through the city center, passing many significant tourist attractions. You'll see part of the infamous Red Light District along its banks, as well as a house that claims to be the narrowest in the world at only 1 m (3.3 ft) wide. Amsterdam's popular flower market, Bloemenmarkt, includes market stalls aboard boats in the canal. Make your Amsterdam itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Pleasant street right by the Amstel River, with the flower market, consisting of a number of flower vendors by the river.  more »
  • The nice and walk out by the Singel Canal, a lot to see. Take it easy, buy a coffee or hot chocolate and go bang legs! Stop, lots of pictures! Or simply feel the margin of the canal and observer the movement of tourists, locals... Worth the visit!

  • Very nice things to see. Nice to walk around
  • Each course was a surprise. The service was very good. The ambience was not awesome, but the food was terrific.
