Amsterdam Canal Cruise & Rijksmuseum (Skip The Line)

Admire the city from the water in this 1 hour Canal Cruise taking you through the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district. There’s nowhere quite like it; Amsterdam is sometimes known as the ‘Venice of the North’, but has a very different history to the Italian city of canals!

Feast your eyes on the elegant merchants’ houses that have lined the canals since the Golden Age in the 17th century, the beautifully decorated façades and gables, beautiful churches, the iconic Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) and many more highlights. It’s no wonder that Dutch art around this period was some of the most acclaimed in the world when you see the astonishing landscapes as you sail down the canals.

There’s a commentary in several languages you can listen to during the cruise. It’s a perfect trip for those curious about the history of Amsterdam, its unusual architecture and rich culture! It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the Netherlands with your friends, family, and even that special someone.

Now you can also choose to include a visit to the Rijksmuseum! The Rijksmuseum is the largest museum in the Netherlands and is home to an extensive and beautiful art collection, showcasing Dutch history during the period between 1200 and 2000 AD.
