See the Best of Amsterdam from the Water

This activity will remain open to visitors for the time being, but appropriate measures will be taken.

‘Cheese’ – smile for your unique holiday selfie taken on a boat, while cruising along beautiful houses and charming bridges. Amsterdam is the city of canals, so what would be more logical than discovering the city by boat!? Get on a cruise through the canals and experience unforgettable moments on the water. If you want to listen to the stories about the city, its history, art and culture as well as the city’s residents, then you can use the audio guide aboard that is available in English amongst many other languages. In short, Canal Cruise Amsterdam is a pure joy to discover the city and its UNESCO World Heritage!

If you are interested you can also combine Canal Cruise Amsterdam with a visit to the van Gogh Museum. Find out more here!
