Did you know that every year more than 3 million people enjoy a canal cruise in Amsterdam? There are three ways to see Amsterdam: by foot, by bike or with a canal cruise. By boat?! Yes, by boat. Amsterdam is famous for its UNESCO 17th century canal district. The best way to see these canals with beautiful bridges, gorgeous (expensive) houses and local shops and restaurants is in a boat. There are many different companies offering canal cruises in Amsterdam, because there is so much demand for it.
Most asked question in wintertime: ‘Is it a closed boat with a roof?’ Luckily, most boats are closed. With the unpredictable Dutch weather, it is recommended to stay dry when it is raining and go for a closed boat cruise. The boats are nice and warm inside and usually go more frequently (every 20 minutes) compared to the open boats. As the closed boats do not have a bar inside, they are flexible when it comes to bringing your own beverages. The prices for these canal cruises in Amsterdam usually vary between €15 and €18. And most of them leave in front of Central Station.
There are different options to enjoy a canal cruise in Amsterdam. For example, there are small open boats with a very intimate atmosphere, only leaving when the weather is good enough. With the first raindrop the open boat will cancel the cruise. On some open boat cruises there is one drink included. That’s why the prices are a bit higher compared to the closed boat cruises.
Do you want more advice on which company is the best company to do a cruise with or you want to buy tickets in advance so you can skip […]
