Combine two top attractions

Lovers Canal Cruises offers you the unique opportunity to combine a cruise with a visit to the world-famous Rijksmuseum. Both experiences are not to be missed on a visit to the Dutch capital. This combination ticket is the perfect way to discover Amsterdam.

Enjoy the 8000 artistic and historical objects on display at the Rijksmuseum, before winding your way down the city’s waterways in a canal boat. Or vice versa! The beauty of a Rijksmuseum and cruise combo is that you can structure your day exactly as you want to. It is also one of the better Amsterdam deals, as you will save time and money on both experiences.

The wonders of the Rijksmuseum

Start or continue your day in the impressive Rijksmuseum, the pride of the Netherlands. Covering 800 years of Dutch history, the Rijksmuseum overflows with thousands of famous artworks and historical artefacts. Don’t miss luminous masterpieces by the Dutch masters, such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Frans Hals, admired by people from all over the world.

But the beauty is not just inside the Rijksmuseum. The building itself is worthy of a photo or two as well. Located at the Museumplein, or Museum District, and with definite renaissance and gothic influences, the Rijksmuseum is truly the height of architectural talent.

If you buy your tickets from Lovers Canal Cruises, you also benefit from fast track access. Book online and spend more time viewing your favourite works of art, like The Milkmaid, by Johannes Vermeer, or Rembrandt’s most famous canvas, The Night Watch.

Amsterdam Canal Cruise

An Amsterdam canal cruise is the perfect addition to a trip to the Rijksmuseum. During the hour-long cruise, you’ll discover the beautiful canal belt of the ‘Venice of the North.' The Amsterdam canal cruise is truly one of Amsterdam’s highlights, it’s no wonder that the 100km-long canal belt is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Marvel at the three most famous canals of the city, the Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht, and Herengracht, alongside which wealthy spice merchants constructed grand houses during the Dutch Golden Age. The Amsterdam canal cruise is significantly enriched by an audio guide, in 19 languages, packed with fascinating information about the city's history.
