The city from the water
Amsterdam boasts over 100 kilometres of canals and more than 1500 bridges. During the Golden Age, many of the canals were built, including the popular Herengracht, Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht. Amsterdam’s canals are unique and are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. An Amsterdam boat tour lends itself perfectly to admiring the symbol of the capital from the water.
Did you know that the canals were, and still are, incredibly important for Amsterdam for several reasons? The canals kept buildings dry, allowed merchants to transport goods through the city more easily, and made it easier to defend the city. Nowadays, the waters are still crowded with, for example, our canal cruise Amsterdam or our private boat tour. It gives you a unique view of the characteristic canal houses. From elegant mansions on the Keizersgracht to converted warehouses on the Brouwersgracht. Our experienced and local boatmen will tell you the best facts about them.
The many green trees and romantic bridges give a soft character to the city centre. The Skinny Bridge is beautifully lit in the evening, decorated with hanging flower boxes and parked bicycles, and has been labelled as Amsterdam’s most romantic spot. It is definitely worth taking a photo as you sail past it during our canal cruise Amsterdam. Another photo-worthy bridge is the one on the corner of the Reguliersgracht and Herengracht. That’s not because the bridge itself is so beautiful, but because it gives you a great view over 15 bridges and many canal houses that are stated tight against the water. And if you’re already busy with taking pictures, then grab your opportunity to take a beautiful picture of the Golden Bend where Amsterdam’s most beautiful canal houses are stated.
