water

Water is a huge part of Amsterdam’s landscape so it’s no wonder that life here is so closely entwined with it. Cruising on the canals is a favourite for young and old and is taken to another level during King’s Day and Amsterdam Gay Pride, swimming is a treat whether it’s in the sea or a city pool, there’s a wide variety of water sports on offer, and there are large-scale boating events like SAIL and HISWA.
