Boat trip on the canals

grachten-amsterdam-guidepagesSail with a boat around on the unique, beautiful canals of Amsterdam. Millions of people already went before you, the canal boats are one of the most visited attractions in all of Netherlands. In 1612 people began with graving of the three main canals, Herengracht, Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht. These canals were expanded over the years, the rapid growth of the city of Amsterdam.

The canals are located in a circle to the Center down, you might be able to see it as a belt. The boat takes you on an adventure along all kinds of old, historic places, many of which are built in the golden age. Let yourself be carried away by the stories about the historic houses and about the golden age and enjoying the sail on the beautiful canals of Amsterdam.
