The city of Amsterdam is arty and watery. There are many faces to the city: the cultural aspect with its famous museums and extraordinary artistic history; the somewhat seamy side with the well-known red light district featuring nightclubs, bars, jazz clubs and coffee shops; and the souvenir circuit of cheese and flower markets. Amsterdam has many canals and waterways so the best way to get around is by boat and many tourists take advantage of this water network to visit the city.
The Venice of the north does not have gondolas but it offers many tours and trips along its canals. Mini cruises are perfect for those who want to make the most of their Amsterdam holiday and visit the wonderful attractions that it boasts of because the said cruises are specifically to help customers make the most of their trip on board a grandiose vessel. Mini cruises last one hour or longer and evening cruises include dinner and drinks.
Amsterdam is a city overflowing with cultural attractions. This goes to show that Amsterdam has a lot to offer; tourists and visitors in search of cultural fulfillment will not be disappointed.
Your mini cruise will take you to cultural sites such as the Rijksmuseum, Rembrandt Square and the Anne Frank House. From the boat you can admire the beautiful old Dutch canal houses that date from Amsterdam’s golden age of prosperous trade and artistic creation. The canals that encircle the older area of the city are part of a Unesco Heritage site.
Many boats travel the canals, from mini cruisers to canoes; they share the canals with families of ducks, swans and other aquatic animals, many of whom make nests under the bridges. This is the surprising nature side of this watery city so rich in history, art and cultural icons, all of which can be appreciated during an edifying mini cruise on Amsterdam’s canals.
