Bike the Canal Belt
The beautiful 400-year-old network of canals that rings Amsterdam’s city center, known as the Grachtengordel, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with some 80 bridges crisscrossing the historic waterways. One of the best ways to explore this picturesque part of the city is the way locals do—by bicycle. Bike rentals are ubiquitous in the city. A good place to get your bearings is the Museum of Amsterdam Canals on the Herengracht canal.
