You will sail past old warehouses, docks and boatyards dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries serving as reminders of the city’s past as a seaport. From the canal you will have the perfect view of many beautiful churches and distinctive houses which proudly line the riverbanks.

After the cruise you can skip all the lines and go straight in to the Rijksmuseum; a museum dedicated to the arts and history. Rijksmuseum consists of a collection containing over 1 million works of art and historical objects.
