What to expect

Amsterdam is best viewed from the water. On this 75-minute canal cruise you’ll experience the best of our historical city. It offers you the best views of the 17th-century buildings lining the city canals, and will also show you the 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. You’ll come across new architecture and bridges, showing a city that is rooted in history but continues to develop and change.

The center of Amsterdam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and it’s not hard to see why. During a canal tour in Amsterdam you will be amazed by the gorgeous 17th century canal houses, old merchant houses from the Dutch Golden Age, the charming bridges and the Dutch cyclists biking along the canals. And look! There’s the Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk! But Amsterdam is so much more than just old buildings – many new architectural masterpieces have been built along the Piet Heinkade on the IJ river.

During your City Canal Cruise you will discover everything the Dutch capital has to offer in 75 minutes. Keep your camera closeby, because you don’t want to miss this! Are you ready to admire all the highlights of Amsterdam? During the City Canal Cruise, you’ll see the city the way it really is – from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the impressive (replica of a) VOC ship outside the Maritime Museum.
