Maritime Museum and canal cruise - Amsterdam and vicinity
Maritime Museum and canal cruise: Amsterdam is all the more spectacular seen from the water. The #1 Canal Cruise in Amsterdam takes you to many of the city’s highlights within one hour. The Westerkerk, the Anne Frank House, the narrowest house in Amsterdam: you’ll be able to see all of them during this canal cruise. It’s the most relaxing way to get to know Amsterdam, as you’ll have your own personal audio guide. As the boat departs and you put on your head phones, you embark on an amazing journey through Amsterdam’s rich history. The #1 Canal Cruise is the way to get to know the city.
In the 17th century, no other country in the world had as many ships as The Netherlands did. Maritime strength led to intercontinental trade blossoming. At the Maritime Museum you’ll find out about the Dutch maritime history in an interactive and personal way. There are also special exhibits for children. In 2011, the Maritime Museum was re-opened after an extensive renovation, but even now the place exudes a sense of history. The building alone is worth a visit. And naturally then you’ll want to stray on board the VOC ship the “Amsterdam”.
