Cruise the Amsterdam canals from Amsterdam-Central station!

Meet at the platform of Amsterdam-Central Station or at one of the other pre-booked departure platforms. Your boat is recognizable by its orange and black colors and large picture windows. You'll be warmly welcomed by the captain and seated in the seat of your choice.

You'll then embark on a canal cruise lasting around an hour. You'll be able to listen to the audioguide on board free of charge, by plugging in the headphones you'll be given when you come aboard. The audioguide commentary is available in several languages, so you can learn more about the city of Amsterdam and the monuments you'll see.

You'll have the chance to explore several Amsterdam neighborhoods, including Jordaan, Negen Straatjes and De Pijp. You'll pass Anne Frank's house, the Rijksmuseum and the Westerkerk church, as well as the Magere Brug bridge.
