The Nieuwe Herengracht is a canal in Centrum district of Amsterdam.
The canal is an extension of the Herengracht that runs between the Amstel and the Scharrebiersluis leading to the Schippersgracht from the Entrepotdok.
It is in the Plantage neighborhood in the eastern part of the Grachtengordel .

The Herengracht, dug in 1612, is named after the Heren Regeerders who governed Amsterdam in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The part between Leidsegracht and the Amstel belongs to the expansion of 1658.
With the last expansion, the section was laid east of the Amstel to Schippersgracht, where the water flowed into the IJ, or since 1832 into the Oosterdok.
This part, the Nieuwe Herengracht, like the Nieuwe Keizersgracht and the Nieuwe Prinsengracht, ran through the prosperous part of Amsterdam's Jewish quarter.
