Amsterdam is extraordinary after dark. The gorgeous merchant houses twinkle in the darkness, the lights glitter on the waters of the world-famous canals, and the city comes alive with nocturnal activity. Savour the beauty of the ‘Venice of the North’ on an Amsterdam Evening Canal Cruise.
An Amsterdam Evening Canal Cruise will take you through the most impressive of Amsterdam's waterways, including the 17th-century Canal Belt, where the evening silence will surprise you. Each cruise is unique as the captain chooses the route based on the traffic on the water and the size of the boat.
This canal tour starts at the very heart of the city, right near Central Station. As you travel through Amsterdam's neighbourhoods, such as the Jordaan, the Nine Streets or the Pijp, you might see sights like the Amstel river which gave the city its name, the Anne Frank House, the Westerkerk and the iconic Skinny bridge.
Marvel at the lights shining off the iconic gabled houses of the historic center, or simply let the evening ambiance sink into your bones. Enjoy the quaint beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Canal Belt and the illuminated canal bridges (there are 1000 of them in Amsterdam!) as the captain and an audio guide fill you in on Amsterdam’s dramatic 800-year-old history.
With panoramic roofs, sliding windows and open-air back decks, our modern, comfortable boats are just perfect for soaking up the evening sights along the Amsterdam canals. The city shows itself from it's best angle when you look at if from the water.
The Evening Canal Cruise departs daily all year round. Departure times vary from 5 pm to 9 or 10 pm, depending on the time of year. That ensures you have plenty of time for other fun sightseeing activities and discover the city throughout the day.
Save time and money by combining your Evening Canal Cruise with another activity, like a trip to the weird and wonderful at Ripley's Believe It or Not!, or meander through the stunning Rijksmuseum. Only tickets bought in combination with a Lovers Canal Cruise can be cancelled - free of charge - up to 8 hours before the scheduled start of the activity.
