The Spiegelkwartier or Mirror Quarter is a historical neighbourhood
at the Canal Belt centre, a UNESCO World Heritage. Probably the image
most associated with the city of Amsterdam is that of elegant gabled
mansions richly decorated and beautifully laid out, facing water canals
lined with trees. The crescent-shaped rings of man made waterways,
Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht, called the
Grachtengordel in Dutch, were built around the old heart of town during
the 17th century's Dutch Golden Age.
Spiegelstraat is a must for lovers of antique shops and art galleries.
Exploring the historic Spiegelkwartier is easily combined with a visit
to the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the Allard Pierson museum - all
within walking distance.
It is easy to find many means of public transport, specially trams,
there are also buses and taxis, but then again, you are in a privilege
position to access the endless display of hot spots around town.
