Golden Bend

  Herengracht between Leidsestraat and Vijzelstraat ,   Centrum         more than a year ago
This stretch of the Herengracht is famous for its grand manor houses that came into existence when Amsterdam’s über-wealthy built their dream homes here during the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century. Although it figures prominently in city guides of all stripes, the buildings are actually on the boring side and lack the narrow dimensions and cosiness that most people associate with the capital’s architecture. You’ll probably walk by on your way to lots of local museums anyway, but otherwise you can give it a pass unless you need to hire one of the prominent law firms that have their offices here.
