Navigating through the canals of Amsterdam is a unique experience. You definitely want to visit some or all of the spot mentioned below.


In 1612, the canal belt was dug in a southern direction from the Brouwersgracht. It owes its name to the many breweries that were in the area.

Anne Frank huis

The Anne Frank Huis is a monument to commemorate Anne Frank and her family. The house is located at 263-267 Prinsengracht.


Westerkerk in Amsterdam is a church located at the Prinsengracht canal, at Westermarkt, on the edge of the Jordaan.


The largest and most important national museum of the Netherlands, and also the house of Rembrandt van Rijn’s Night Watch.

Heineken Brouwerij

The Heineken Brouwerij (Brewery) was founded on 15 February 1863 when Gerard Adriaan Heineken purchased ‘De Hooiberg’ brewery. In 1873 the name was changed to Heineken’s Bierbrouwerij Maatschappij.

The Royal Theatre Carré (Koninklijk Theater Carré)

The Royal Theatre Carré is a theatre, located near the Amstel. Its original name was Circus Carré and it is built in the classicist style.


Hermitage Amsterdam is a branch of the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, located along the Amstel.

Natura Artis Magistra: ‘Nature is the teacher of art and science’ is the zoo of Amsterdam and the oldest zoo in the Netherlands, located in the Plantage neighbourhood.

National Maritime Museum (Scheepsvaartmuseum)

Amsterdam Central Station

Amsterdam Central Station was built between 1881 and 1889, based on the design by P.J.H. Cuypers. This architect also designed the Rijksmuseum, which is why the two buildings look alike.

Recommended boating tours

Grachtenroute (Canals Tour)

A beautiful route through the canals, straight through the centre of our city on poles. View the canal-side houses from an entirely different perspective. Perhaps Amsterdam is even at its most beautiful when viewed from the canals! (via Waternet)

Plantageroute (Plantation Tour)

Go on safari in the city and boat through the greenest part of Amsterdam via our Plantation Route. Apart from the area’s special architecture and the abundance of green, there are also other special landmarks: this route also passes the back section of Artis (Entrepotdok). Stand in your boat and try to spot a zebra or a Sahara oryx! (via Waternet)

Wallenroute (Red Light District Tour)

The best known part of Amsterdam for most of us and for every tourist: De Wallen (or in popular speech, the ‘walletjes‘). Nice detail: this route also passes the Old Church (Oude Kerk).  This is the oldest building still in existence in the city. It likely dates from 1306. Have you never been on a boat trip through this exciting part of Amsterdam? Then I suggest you get right on it! (via Waternet)
