Canal cruise

Amsterdam is famous for its canals. Starting in the city’s the earliest days, these waterways were crucial to the transport of people and goods throughout the city. The waterways also provided a robust line of defence against hostile armies. Even today, the canals play an important role in maritime traffic, and they are wildly popular among locals and tourists alike. You and your class can take a canal cruise to get to know Amsterdam’s unique city centre. 

You can start or end your cruise at NEMO or at Amsterdam Central Station.

Please note: The canal cruise takes you through Amsterdam’s waterways with no information provided by a guide.
