Built in the 17th century, this is the only house in amsterdam, that faces three canals, hence its name. Located along Oudezijds Voorburgwal, Grimburgwal and Oudezijds Achterburgwal. Not really a stand alone attraction, however good to see during a walk along the canals.

This house shows the value of land in the city of Amsterdam when it was built. Full use of all the land available is what has produced this house with three prospects. I would not specifically go here, but eventually you will pass it in your travels around the city. One minute and you've seen it.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
