NOTES

Walking down the quiet, tree-lined Reguliersgracht, it’s easy to forget how close you are to central Amsterdam.

Named by Lonely Planet as “Amsterdam’s prettiest canal”, Reguliersgracht was dug out in 1658. It is named after an order of monks, whose monastery – the Reguliersklooster – was located at the nearby intersection of Utrechtsestraat and Keizersgracht.

Although just 300 metres long, the canal is crossed by seven bridges. Bridge 73 (the first arch bridge we have covered here on Bridges of Amsterdam) is part of this cluster, and offers year-round picture-postcard views. This is the city at its very best.

Travel east across Bridge 73 to reach Amstelveld, a public square lined with caucasian wingnut trees that hosts regular flower and antiques markets.
