Amsterdam combines the modern with the old,
business with art, and an active commercial harbor with the charm of Rembrandt's days.
It's a colorful town with flower markets along the quays
and music in the cobble-stoned streets.

Amsterdam has fifty canals which creates a romantic atmosphere
by day and by night.

The houseboat Annema is situated in the centre of Amsterdam
in an area called "West".
The "West" is a typical "volks" district which has in recent years been restored.
The Jordaan is a neighborhood just on the opposite side of the channel
where the Annema is moored. It is Amsterdam's Greenwich Village.
With its narrow alleys, leafy canals lined with 17th-century houses,
quirky specialty shops, cafes and designer boutiques.
The neighborhood was originally built for artists, craftsmen, and tradesmen and the old character still remains,
though gentrification has left its mark.

The Noordermarkt in the Jordaan, is a special place to visit.
On Saturday from 10am to 3pm,
this old market square hosts a Farmers' Market for "bio" (organic) products and a Bird Market. A popular flea market that overflows onto neighboring Westerstraat
take over on Monday from 7:30am to 1:30pm;
clothes that were fashionable a decade and more ago are, for some reason, highly esteemed.
But also

The Dam, Koninklijk Paleis (Royal Palace), Nieuwe Kerk (New Church),
the Anne Frankhuis , the Westerkerků.. are in a distance of a 5 - 10 min walk from the houseboat Annema.
The Westerpark you reach in about 15-20 minutes by feet.
There you can enjoy a nice meal, cinema, dancing or you just enjoy a sunny day
