Combine your visit to the Anne Frank House with a Canal Cruise!
A lot of canal cruises leave near Amsterdam Central Station. Which is great, because it is close to the city center and easily reachable. But sometimes you are somewhere else in the city and you feel like taking a relaxing cruise along the Amsterdam canals. A canal cruise takes about an hour, which makes them easy to combine with other activities. That’s why we offer multiple locations where you can board one of our ships. One of these locations is right next to the Anne Frank House. This museum is the former house and hiding place of Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank. It is the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands and a must see when you are in Amsterdam. When you leave the museum you might feel like taking an Amsterdam canal cruise to overthink the impressions of the museum and to see some more of the surroundings.
Tour the Amsterdam canals
Near the Anne Frank House, you’ll find the Prinsengracht from where our Amsterdam Canal Cruise leaves. The Prinsengracht is the fourth and longest of the main canals in Amsterdam. The canal houses you’ll see along the way where mostly build during the Dutch Golden Age, which makes them of great historic value. Other famous buildings you’ll see during the Amsterdam Canal Cruise are the Noorderkerk (Northern Church), the Noordermarkt (Northern Market) and the Westerkerk (Western Church). But this cruise doesn’t stay on the Prinsengracht. Also, many other great Amsterdam canals like the Keizersgracht and the Herengracht will be part of the cruise. So you’ll also see famous sites like the Negen Straatjes (Nine Streets), the Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) and the Amstel river where Amsterdam got his name from.
