As capital cities go, Amsterdam is small in comparison. It has a reputation for free-spirited and very liberal lifestyles. Some might call it Europe's most "radical" city, but one cannot deny the beauty of Amsterdam and its rich history. Amsterdam is a cultural center of Europe, as exemplified in its more than 140 art galleries and 40 museums. In addition, it is famous for its baroque architecture, canals, and cobblestone streets where the favored mode of transportation is the bicycle.

  • The Waterways of Amsterdam - Canal Cruise

    The city of Amsterdam has always had strong ties to the water. Spread out over 70 islands, this wonderful cosmopolitan city boasts 60 miles of canals and 1,000 bridges. As early as the 13th century, small ships would set sail from this port into the challenging Zuider Sea. However, it wasn't until the 15th century that Amsterdam gained renown when it became a major trading center, steadily assuming commercial leadership and thus controlling the country's finances, a trend that remains to this day.

    Amsterdam is widely recognized for its distinctive, narrow, gabled houses that line the city's canals, as well as its historical center which is home to such interesting attractions as the medieval weight house, the Royal Palace on Dam Square and the Nieuwe Kerk or New Church, which was built in 1468.

    Boarding one of the city's world-famous glass-topped canal boats at the cruise terminal, you'll embark on a delightful tour through the Amsterdam canals, passing major monuments such as the Maritime museum, the town hall and the Anne Frank House along your route. When your canal cruise comes to an end, your guide will take you back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes a 10 min walk (just over 300 yards) between the ship and the canal boat. There will be steps to negotiate to enter and exit the canal boat. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing to include an umbrella and light raincoat as in lowlands weather can change rapidly; cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
