Amsterdam's Canals
📍 From Engelschman Brug, Netherlands
Amsterdam's Canals are an iconic feature of the city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Meandering through the heart of the city, the canals offer a glimpse into the city’s rich history. Built over the course of many centuries, Amsterdam's canals have served as an integral part of the city's architecture, culture, and life. The impressive network of seventeen intersecting canals, each with its own unique feature, are both aesthetically and historically significant.

The canal district of Amsterdam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and taking a cruise around the canals is an ideal way to see the city’s iconic buildings. Highlights include the Magere Brug (Skinney Bridge), which was built in 1671 and is the oldest bridge in town, and the beautiful building of the Royal Palace on Dam Square. The best way to explore the canals is by taking a leisurely stroll along their banks. There are many bridges to admire, boutique stores to discover, and quaint cafes and bars to enjoy. With its bridges, winding alleyways, old Dutch-style buildings and the numerous houseboats, Amsterdam's canals offer the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable stroll through the city.
