Reguliersgracht is a canal in Amsterdam, Netherlands.[1][2] Established in 1658, it is located in the Grachtengordel, in the Centrum borough. During World War II the "nerve center" of the illegal paper Het Parool was housed there, in a house (number 111)[3] occupied by Simon Carmiggelt, Max Nord, Wim van Norden and their families.[4]
