Amsterdam Cruises

The Dutch capital is one of the most popular destinations in Europe for a city break but is also a top port of call for ships that are sailing in the waters around Northern Europe.

There is certainly no shortage of things to see and do during your time ashore, which is sure to leave you wanting to return at some point in the future to experience it all in more depth.

Or if you want to see everything that Amsterdam has to offer, it’s the ideal port from which to start or end your cruise – adding a short city break into the mix.

Luckily, the heart of Amsterdam can be accessed with relative ease from the cruise port so you don’t have to wait long to get your city experience underway.

A stroll alongside the famous canals and through the city will allow you to marvel at the impressive architecture that can be found at every turn, which include the neo-Gothic Centraal Station and the imposing Royal Palace of Amsterdam.

Across the city there are also various churches, including Oude Kerk, which is one of the oldest buildings anywhere in Amsterdam and can found in the heart of De Wallen; the most famous red light district.

When it comes to galleries and museums, you will find yourself quite literally spoiled for choice.

Anne Frank House, where the youngster hid with her family to try and avoid Nazi persecution in World War II, the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum are just three that you may want to consider visiting – with the latter being one of the most important museums to be found anywhere in the Netherlands.

The Heineken Experience, located in the former brewery where the famous drink was created, is also worth checking out having been turned into a museum and visitor centre.

You’ll be able to enjoy all manner of different food and drink, from small local cafes to big chains that you’ll be familiar with from elsewhere, whilst you can enjoy shopping in everything from designer stores to small boutiques, and bustling markets where traders sell homemade wares.
