This apartment is located on the Singel Canal, one of the main canals in the World Heritage listed Central Canal Belt. The canal belt is well known for its stunning 17th century canal houses built by wealthy merchants during the Dutch Golden Age. Today many of these canal houses remain almost exactly as they were during this period, while others have been converted in Museums, bars, restaurants, cafes, shops and offices. Museum Van Loon provides an amazing insight into how the wealthy merchants lived during this period, as the building and interior have been extremely well preserved. The apartment is just a short walk from Dam Square, the centre of old Amsterdam and home to the stunning Royal Palace, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, the New Church and De Bijenkorf Department Store. If you are looking for boutique shopping and charming cafes, make sure you head to the Nine Streets and spend some time wandering around. The location of the apartment really is second to none, with many of the sights Amsterdam has to offer just a short walk away. For those places further afield, the apartment is also well serviced by public transport.
