Canals of Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s first canals were dug during the Middle Ages for city defence and water management. Amsterdam’s three main canals, the Herengracht, the Keizersgracht and the Prinsengracht were dug at the same time. It took 50 years until the canals were completed. Meanwhile, the city had quadrupled in size and from then on Amsterdam had the most efficient waterway system in the world. As a result, Amsterdam became one of the largest merchants in the world. Discover these canals from the water with a canal cruise in Amsterdam.
