It is such a short walk from the city centre, I understand that it used to be a rough and ready working-class area but all I saw were local yuppies jogging around the narrow streets, listening to their iPods. :-) It is a residential district, but it has so much character & life to it. It is a good place to cycle around if you want to do that.

Address: West side of the city centre
Directions: it is on the upper left side of the Prinsengracht canal, or if you go from Damrak, cut across the square, past Magna Plaza, down Radhuisstraat til you get to the Westerkerk (next pic here) and the Prinsengracht canal and there you are.
