Perfect dinner at DenC. They offer set menus and a la carte items so we combined the two. They also offer special wines by the glass, allowing us to create our own pairings, which was great. The food and wine was amazing, the service and atmosphere wonderful. We had scallops and duck pate to start, followed by lamb and beef entrees. Apricot dessert with lavender ice cream. The red wine from Israel was unexpected and fabulous. We regret not getting the bottle! More

Discover Grachtengordel

Canals flow all throughout the city, but nowhere quite like this unique neighborhood in the Centrum district. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the city’s four main canals are the centerpiece, with small bridges traversing the narrow waterways interspersed with 17th-century canal homes. After working up an appetite visiting nearby attractions like the Anne Frank House or the abundance of museums, pop in to one of the nearby cafes for local Dutch beers and a casual bite. On the more high-end side, a select crop of four-star restaurants are some of the most revered in Europe, ranging from modern takes on Dutch fare to fine French cuisine. And when it comes to breakfast, look out for the first-class full English breakfast served daily just off Leidsestraat. Just know that wherever you go, the canals and eateries are a memorable combo.
