The Amstel, Amsterdam

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Take advantage of great photo backdrops from one of Amsterdam's historic bridges, go for a stroll or a bike ride by the water, or have a coffee at a riverside cafe. No matter your choice, you'll never be too far away from The Amstel. The river is the soul of the city, and along with multiple canals, it greatly influences the city's layout and gives it its distinctive look and atmosphere. A dam on the river gave Amsterdam its name. Residents and visitors flock to the river these days for many different events, such as the annual Liberation Day concert, rowing races, and the Canal Parade. Take a boat tour for one of the most popular ways to experience the river.

  • Obligatory passage for anyone who is interested in getting to know the city. Account with different attractions for all your course, where the boat trips too.
