Exploring the Canal Ring

Canal cruises are one of Amsterdam’s most popular attractions. For anyone visiting for the first time, it’s an excellent introduction to the city’s many sights. There are a number of departure points throughout the city and the tours are available in a multitude of languages, provided by a number of different operators. Whether it’s a one-hour tour, a hop on, hop off all-day experience, or a romantic candlelight dinner cruise, there are options for every occasion.

On dry land

Naturally the Canal Ring can be enjoyed just as well from the streets above the water. Take a guided walking tour, a route map, or perhaps rent a bike and find your way through the city the native way.
