    Iconic Grachtengordel

    Located right in the heart of Amsterdam, Grachtengordel, or the Canal District, is perhaps the Dutch capital's most coveted address. The city's iconic canals were developed in the 17th century, and many of the strikingly narrow, opulent houses that line the shimmering watersides date back to that period. Winding cobblestone streets and crooked footbridges further add to the neighborhood's enchantingly old-world vibe. You can lose days exploring the cozy cafes, chic boutiques and bustling bistros that you'll find on the doorstep of your Grachtengordel vacation rental. And that's before you've sampled Amsterdam's cosmopolitan cultural scene and alluringly hedonistic nightlife.

    Glide along the water in Grachtengordel

    To experience Grachtengordel like a local, hire a bike and spend the day exploring the city's pristine parks, magnificent monuments and avant-garde architecture at your leisure. Or maybe you'd prefer to join a canal cruise, and take in the sights as you glide along the glistening waterways. Hop-on-hop-off boat trips are a handy way to jump between major attractions, or you could celebrate a special occasion with a ravishingly romantic candlelit dinner cruise. Discerning shoppers should carve out some time for De Negen Straatjes, or The Nine Streets, where you'll find an overwhelming array of hip independent and specialty stores.

    Moving museums and awe-inspiring art

    Amsterdam's major attractions lie within easy reach of Grachtengordel vacation rental properties. Top of the agenda for many is an enthralling, sobering trip to the Anne Frank House, dedicated to the world-renowned young Jewish wartime diarist, in the very home in which she hid from Nazi persecution. The Van Gogh Museum is home to the world's largest collection of work by the legendary Dutch artist, including the priceless masterpieces "Sunflowers" and "The Potato Eaters". The Rijksmuseum is a cavernous art and history museum, with an unrivalled collection of Dutch Golden Age paintings by the likes of Rembrandt and Vermeer.

    Vivid seasons in Grachtengordel

    Whilst Amsterdam is a perennially popular year-round destination, Grachtengordel vacation rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer season of June to August. At this time of year, days are long and generally agreeably warm, rather than oppressively so. Late spring and early fall also tend to be pleasantly mild, and you may find it easier to land a good deal on sought-after accommodation during these times. Winters are chilly, but rarely extremely cold, whilst snow is relatively rare.

    Animal encounters in Grachtengordel

    It's a breeze to escape the hustle and bustle of city life in Grachtengordel, with an abundance of tranquil, lush green parks to unwind in. Keep an eye on the sky, and you may be greeted by the unexpected sight of a bright green, rose-ringed parakeet – surprisingly, thousands of the exotic birds have flourished in the city since the 1980s. Majestic gray herons are also often to be spotted circling ahead. For further animal encounters, head to the ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo, where you can get up close and personal with everything from gentle giraffes to enchanting elephants.
