  • De Wallen: Just below the lowlife sin section of "The Walls" — that is, the Red Light District — is a contrast: This delightful southern district of Old Amsterdam encompasses tranquil canals lined with handsome 16th-century houses and the University of Amsterdam's bustling campus.
  • Het IJ: Day by day, Amsterdam's future unfolds before your eyes along the narrow channel on which the city's old port zone east and west of Centraal Station stood. A whirl of gargantuan redevelopment projects and modern architecture is transforming the waterway.
  • Jordaan: Bounded by Brouwersgracht, Singelgracht, Prinsengracht, and Leidsestraat, this former artisan neighborhood has become gentrified. With its own small canals, street markets, and an array of minor attractions, it's a great place for random wandering.
