The Zwanenburgwal is a canal and street in the center of Amsterdam. During the Dutch Golden Age the canal was home to painter Rembrandt van Rijn, as well as philosopher Spinoza lived here. In 2006 it was voted one of the most beautiful streets in Amsterdam by readers of Het Parool, a local daily newspaper.
The Zwanenburgwal flows from the Sint Antoniessluis sluice gate to the Amstel river. The canal was originally named Verversgracht , after the textile industry that once dominated this part of town. Dyed textiles were hung to dry along the canal.
