Built around the dam of the Amstel River from which it gets its name, Amsterdam is a city alive with culture, art, and quaint architecture. Amsterdam is the gateway to the Rhine River which winds through Germany and connects with other major European rivers like the Main and Danube. Numberous canals also span the Netherlands into Belgium that are excellent for exploring charming historical cities, windmills and expansive flower farms. As the capital city of the Netherlands, it is home to several art and history museums like Zaanse Schans and the Van Gogh Museum. In the evenings, you can enjoy a leisurely tour of the city on the canals that wind their way throughout enchanting Amsterdam.  Contact one of our European river cruise specialists when you are ready to start planning your trip to Amsterdam.

Highlights of Amsterdam
Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands and is chock-full of the country's art, history, and culture. Conveniently, many river cruises of central Europe either start or end here, as neighboring Rotterdam is the mouth of the Rhine River. Even cruises that don't originate here tend to spend a few days docked here so that you'll have plenty of time to see highlights like:
  • The Royal Palace
  • 70-acre Keukenhof Gardens, where tulips bloom in stunning arrays of colors
  • The Van Gogh Museum, home to the largest collection of Van Gogh's artwork in the world
  • The ancient Red Light District neighborhood
  • Zaanse Schans, an open air museum with wooden windmills, barns, and houses
  • Canal boat tours
  • Strolling through this delightful city by night
  • “De Halve Maen,” a Dutch East India Company replica ship
