About The Amsterdam 1-Hour Canal Cruise:

Say 'Amsterdam' and one of the first things that'll probably spring to mind will be the city's web-like array of canals. Indeed, they are one of the Dutch capital's defining features and no sightseeing trip would be complete without a foray onto the waters.

The views one gets from the waterways are unrivalled. Townhouses with their Dutch renaissance façades tower left and right and the cobbled streets are rimmed with rows of greenery. The canals serve as central pathways on these aquatic boulevards and provide travellers with the city's finest vantage points.

Some of the more well-known attractions you'll sail by on the 1-hour canal cruise are the Anne Frank House, the Hagere Brug Bridge, Westerkerk and the historic VOC Ship.

About Amsterdam's Canals:

Amsterdam's canals were first constructed in the early 17th century for the practical purposes of water management and defence. Over time, the multi-layered rings, known locally as Grachtengordel, began to serve as transport routes for imported and exported goods. It was during this burgeoning era of maritime trade that the now iconic town/warehouses sprang up along the canal edges. Looking at their inspiring façades one can still see hoist beams jutting from ornate gables. These were once used by merchants to haul goods into their storerooms.
