Pass By: Canal Ring (Grachtengordel), Canal Ring (Grachtengordel), Amsterdam, North Holland Province

The Grachtengordel (known in English as the Canal District) is a neighborhood in Amsterdam, Netherlands located in the Centrum district. The seventeenth-century canals of Amsterdam, located in the center of Amsterdam, were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in August 2010.[1] The Amsterdam Canal District consists of the area around the city’s four main canals: the Singel, the Herengracht, the Keizersgracht, and the Prinsengracht. From the Brouwersgracht, the canals are generally parallel with one another, leading gradually southeast into the Amstel river.

Many of the canal houses in the Amsterdam Canal District are from the Dutch Golden Age, 17th century. Many of these buildings, however, underwent restoration or reconstruction in various centuries, meaning that these building display many different architectural styles and facades

Pass By: Westerkerk, Prinsengracht 279-281, 1016 GW Amsterdam The Netherlands

he Westerkerk was built between 1620 and 1631 in Renaissance style according to designs by architect Hendrick de Keyser (1565-1621). He is buried in the church he designed earlier: the 'Zuiderkerk'. The building of the Westerkerk was finished and completed by his son Pieter de Keyser (1595-1676) and inaugurated on June 8, 1631. The church has a length of 58 meters and a width of 29 meters. The high nave is flanked by the two lower aisles. The three-aisled basilica has a rectangular plan with two transepts of equal dimensions. As a result, the plan for this church was given the form of two Greek crosses connected with each other.[2] (a patriarchal cross).

Several older churches in Amsterdam, such as Oude Kerk and Nieuwe Kerk, were originally built before the Reformation and were converted to Protestantism during the Reformation in 1578. The Westerkerk was one of the first purposely built Protestant churches. The Noorderkerk and Zuiderkerk preceded the Westerkerk. Today the Westerkerk remains the largest church in the Netherlands that was built for Protestants, and is still in use by the PKN (Protestantse Kerk in Nederland)

We found this tour to provide us with a scheduled entrance time for the Van Gogh Museum to be an excellent and orderly way to avoid the long lines of confused tourists!
The canal cruise can be used any point in the day which extends the day’s flexible time table...just fit it in as you have 75 minutes in your day. The tour itself has a rather garbled commentary in English but,since there won’t be an exam, it was a nice accommodation, .
Just a note on the Van Gogh museum, be sure to get the audio guide. It really will help negotiate you thru thr 3 floors of great material on Van Gogh.

I didn't know that there are Canal Cruise and Van Gogh and Van Gogh and Canal Cruise not the same! I called Viotor, but could not help me. I wanted a 1 hr cruise in the evening at sunset, but I bought day cruise without knowing there were similar product. When I got to the Blue Boat, I explained and requested for evening hour. I was told I need to pay a few more euro for 1.5hr. No big deal. I was able to get the sunset time with paying the difference. I wan very grateful to the Blue Boat clerk at the counter for being flexible! The Canal Cruise is a must when you visit Amsterdam. Tram within the city was very slow and ended up spending only .5 hr at Van Gogh. So I can't say much about it. I enjoyed what I saw.

If you love Van Gogh like I do you will want to allow lots of time for this museum. What a wonderful experience! The canal boats were fun and informative. All in all an excellent experience.
