Highlights Amsterdam Canal Cruise
- Cruise along Amsterdam's picturesque canals
- Enjoy stunning Amsterdam
- Enjoy the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district
Amsterdam is sometimes referred to as 'Venice of the North'. 100 km of canals divide the city into smaller islands, connected by beautiful historic bridges. The most famous canals are the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. This cruise takes you through the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district. You will be able to admire the elegant merchants’ houses that have lined the canals since the Golden Age, the majestic façades and gables, beautiful churches, the iconic “Magere Brug” (Skinny Bridge) and many more highlights. During the cruise we offer a commentary in 18 languages. Your visit to Amsterdam is only complete when you have experienced the city from the water.
