The great "city"outdoorsOur school class tours offer students an extensive introduction to Amsterdam! The walking tour takes about 1,5 hours. Included will be parts of the old medieval heart of the city, a visit to the civil gard gallery of the Amsterdam Museum and the famous 'Begijnhof' and (if you want this) a short visit to the ‘red light district’.
Of course you will hear everything about typical Amsterdam phenomena such as house boats and the numerous small boats in the canals, hundreds of thousands of bikes ;-), historical houses, sinking houses, water management, drugs policy, Amsterdam’s founding history etc.
For exemple did you know that:
- Amsterdam is built on swampy soil
- New York originally was called New Amsterdam
- the first stock market of the world was founded in Amsterdam
- Amsterdam a melting pot is with more than 180 different nationalities living together
At the end of the excursion we gladly give you tips about where to eat for fair prices, good shopping and entertainment areas.
