This apartment is located on the Brouwersgracht within the World Heritage Protected Central Canal Belt. Brouwersgracht gets its name from the fact that many breweries once lined this canal, producing beer in a city with a long brewing history. The breweries in this part of the city have now closed but many of the stunning buildings that housed them still remain. The canal is one of the most beautiful in Amsterdam and several bars, cafes and restaurants still operate on the canal. Papeneiland is one of the city’s best examples of a traditional Brown Café and home to arguably the best Dutch Apple Cake in the city. The café is just a short distance from the apartment but be warned, it can only seat about 20 people, so get in early. The apartment is situated on the edge of the Jordaan district with its charming cafes, shops and restaurants and the Anne Frank House. Dam Square, the centre of Old Amsterdam, can be reached in just a few minutes and is home to fine architecture and attractions including the Royal Palace, Madame Tussauds, The New Church and De Bijenkorf department store. The apartment is in a truly stunning location and is well serviced by public transport making it possible to get to anywhere in the city quickly and with minimal effort.
