Throughout the world, Amsterdam is known for its extensive network of canals crisscrossing the heart of the city in over 1000 locations. One of the best ways to explore Amsterdam is from a canal boat. You will board a glass-topped canal boat at the Cruise Terminal. Gliding through the 17th century historic city center, you will discover the elegant merchants mansions and rows of waterside warehouses, which once housed the riches brought from the Far East. Look for the 17th century Skinny Bridge and Amsterdam's narrowest house as you make your way past beautiful old churches to the Anne Frank House, one of the most visited sights in the city.
Explore the Venice of the North on the waters that are its lifeblood on this leisurely glass-topped boat cruise. Begun in 1613, Amsterdam's concentric, semicircular canals bring you up-close views of the historic city center, the elegant manor homes of 17th-century merchants and the waterfront warehouses that made Holland rich. You'll see Amsterdam's most famous bridge, the graceful Magere Brug, and its narrowest home, passing centuries-old churches, and the Anne Frank House.
