"Canal of Contrasts"

Oudezijds Voorburgwal is a very interesting canal. During the Middle Ages, many monasteries were located here, while the Dutch Golden age saw the construction of beautiful canal houses that still line the canal today. Now, the canal runs through the infamous Red Light District and the northern stretch is lined with window girls and adult bars, creating a fascinating contrast with the classic architecture. The Oude Kerk, an old, impressive church that should be part of everybody's trip to Amsterdam, is found along Oudezijds Voorburgwal, while the Bulldog, considered to be Amsterdam's first coffee shop, can also be found here.
