Its many small bridges make the Reguliersgracht one of the most beautiful in Amsterdam. It was opened in 1664 and is named after an old monastery nearby. Explore this idyllic waterway either by boat or stroll along the shore. The Amsterdam canals are as romantic by day as they are by night and there is nothing better than cycling through the illuminated canals in the evening.

A stroll along Amsterdam's canals is a must for any visitor. The canals are a symbol of the city and of great cultural and historical value. In 2010 the World Heritage Committee decided to include the 17th century Amsterdam canal belt on the UNESCO World Heritage list.According to UNESCO, the canals are a cultural heritage of "outstanding universal value" and the city of Amsterdam is doing its utmost to preserve and protect the canals.Each canal in Amsterdam is unique and has its own charm. The most beautiful canal houses in Amsterdam can be found in the 'Gouden Bocht' (Golden Curve), the section of the Herengracht between Leidsestraat and Vijzelstraat. A very special view is offered from the bridge at the corner of Reguliersgracht and Herengracht. From the side with the odd numbers you can see no less than five bridges. And the most picturesque bridge is the 'Magere Brug' (Skinny Bridge). In the evenings it is wonderfully lit, making it one of the most romantic addresses in Amsterdam.holland.com/de/tourist/reiseziel/amsterdam/amsterdamer-grachten.htm
