Amsterdam Canal Cruise

Cruising along the canals of Amsterdam is one of the must-do activities on any trip to the Dutch capital, whose waterways stretch over 60 miles (100 km) around the city centre. The best way to capture the essence of the Netherlands!

The cruise begins in Herengracht, the most luxurious neighbourhood in Amsterdam, whose name literally means "Gentlemen's Canal".

Your boat tour will also sail the canals of Keizersgracht, or Emperor's canal, named after Maximilian I of Austria and dating back to 1612. This 1.2 mile (2.8  km) long canal is home to a huge number of important tourist attractions, including the iconic House with the Heads, known as Huis met de Hoofden in Dutch, whose façade represents the heads of the Roman gods Apollo, Minverva, Ceres, Mercury, Bacchus and Diana.

You will also visit the Prinsengracht area of Amsterdam, where you'll be enchanted by the picturesque feel of this humble neighbourhood, whose emblematic sights include the Anne Frank House and the Houseboat Museum. You'll also get to see the Duif Church and the Palace of Justice.
