Choose a holiday apartment in Amsterdam Central Canal Ring

The Central Canal Ring, known as Singel in the Netherlands, is the oldest canal in this world-famous city. Singel was originally the moat that surrounded the city before the subsequent canals were constructed in the 16th and 17th centuries as part of a well-thought-out, long-term plan to extend the city over the surrounding swamp area.

The resulting rings, of which there are over 90, are just one of many things that have made the city a favorite spot for those on holiday. Surrounding Singel is the Herengracht canal, which is home to numerous elaborate mansions, the Keizersgracht canal, rich in Dutch architecture, and the Prinsengracht canal, which is the longest in Amsterdam and home to the Anne Frank House and the famous Western Church.

For anyone looking to rent an apartment, the Central Canal Ring is just as aesthetically pleasing for the city-dweller and nature-lover alike. These picturesque canals are speckled with elaborate boat houses and restaurants, tree-lined walkways and bridges, and enough to see and do for years to come. In addition to the natural beauty, the architecture itself is exactly what one would want and expect out of a city that's been around since the 12th century.

During its centuries of growth, starting as a small fishing village and slowly expanding into what many have called the Venice of the North, the Central Ring is home to numerous art galleries and historical museums, as well as the infamous Muntplein Square. Often considered the center of the city, this bridge is home to buildings designed by architect Hendrik Petrus Berlage, as well as the floating flower market, with merchandise ranging from fragrant tulips to indoor plants.

Outside of these sites, Singel is home to Amsterdam's Central Station, one of the largest railway hubs in the Netherlands. Holiday train travelers almost always pass through this historic landmark, which was designed by Pierre Cuypers. Linking directly with Liverpool Street in London, the areas surrounding this Central Canal spot are ripe with souvenir shops, beautiful hotels, and decadent restaurants.

Once you're done enjoying the sights, there is one place that everyone must eat: Lieve. Located in a stunning historical building, this Belgian restaurant offers three different dining areas and some of the most delicious food in the city. From vibrant flowers to old-world architecture, visiting the central canal is like walking through a modern-day history book.
