The 2,4 kilometer long Herengracht is the second of four Amsterdam canals belonging to the canals belt. It is one of the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam with many prestigious buildings and national monuments. The canal came into its current form from 1612 onwards. Many houses were then occupied by regents, mayors and tradesmen who earned their capital in trade with South America or the Dutch East Indies. Walking or navigating the Herengracht is a huge sensation.
