The center of Amsterdam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and it’s not hard to see why. During a canal tour in Amsterdam you will be amazed by the gorgeous 17th century canal houses, old merchant houses from the Dutch Golden Age, the charming bridges and the Dutch cyclists biking along the canals. And look! There’s the Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk! But Amsterdam is so much more than just old buildings – many new architectural masterpieces have been built along the Piet Heinkade on the IJ river.

During your Blue Boat City Canal Cruise you will discover everything the Dutch capital has to offer in 75 minutes. Keep your camera closeby, because you don’t want to miss this!
