Step aboard a glass-enclosed boat as it cruises along Amsterdam’s iconic canals in this delightfully tranquil video tour. It is a calming dose of Dutch culture that you can enjoy from anywhere in the world.
The city’s waterways provide the ideal window into Amsterdam’s current society and ancient history. The 165 canals that wind through the city have been Amsterdam’s lifeblood for more than 400 years.
The 10 canals that make up the centre’s canal ring are listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites and with good reason. A boat ride down these historic canals passes by some of the city’s most stunning 17th-century architecture, including charming bridges, gabled houses and national monuments. Expect to sail by Central Station, colourful houseboats, EYE Filmmuseum, NEMO Science Museum, the Skinny Bridge, the Seven Bridges, Amstel River and countless other Amsterdam attractions and slice-of-life scenes that make this city so special.
