Regularly voted Amsterdam's most charming street, this incredible canal at the northern border of the Jordaan is lined with residences and former warehouses for the brewers, fish processors, and tanneries who operated here in the 17th century, when Amsterdam was the "warehouse of the world."
On top of the old canal mansions dotting the Brouwersgracht are symbols referring to the breweries that used this waterway to bring their goods to thirsty drinkers hundreds of years ago.
Goods such as leather, coffee, whale oil, and spices were also stored and processed here in giant warehouses, such as those with the row of spout gables that still stand at Brouwersgracht 188–194.
Brouwersgracht is wonderful for picking a spot to pass time watching boat and foot traffic.
