Along De Duif, one of the city's main canals, you can view several monuments, historic architecture, and one of the city's popular quarters. This canal is the longest of the central canals that help to shape the city, which include Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Singel. Named after the Prince of Orange, this body of water is noted for the canal houses built alongside it during the Dutch Golden Age. Walk beside the water's edge and enjoy the cultural offerings of the Jordaan neighborhood. You can stop by several tourist sites along the way, such as the Northern Church, Northern Market, Anne Frank House, Western Church, and Homomonument.

De Duif reviews
Amazing venue, breathtakingly beautiful with great acoustics. Based in a former church, this has all the splendour you can expect! Watch out for very small steps around the place though, it can be very easy to miss and then trip.
Concert: PORTICO QUARTET. Seated concert in this incredible church building. The acoustics helped convert their immersive sounds. It was hard to stay seated during the climax passages of the music. A single performer performance was something I have not experienced. This format worked well for music which contains long and wandering segments. The only downside was a hiccup with the sound. A couple of times there was a loud bang before the concert started which sounded like a cable being disconnected. Another issue I had was the size and position of the sound reinforcement, It needed to be higher so offer better coverage of the whole audience. I am not sure that the small floor standing arrays were enough for the size of venue. That said, live sound always comes with restraints, maybe they had limited access to system or mounting ability. I am a tough critic in this field. A brilliant evening. Thanks to the staff, sound engineers and Portico Quartet.
