Keizersgracht : Michelin's recommendations
In 1586, the authorities decided to dig a network of concentric canals (Grachtengordel) around the cramped historic centre. The Emperor’s Canal was christened in honour of Maximilian I, who granted the city the right to bear his arms in 1489. The proliferation of house-boats makes this one of the prettiest canals in the city.
