Amsterdam is not known as “The Venice of the North” for nothing. It’s labyrinth of canals stretches over one hundred kilometers around the historic city.
Developed in the Golden Age of the 17th Century, as a result of booming commerce and a rising population, the canal system was envisaged as a system for defense, transportation of goods and commercial development. Today approximately 1500 bridges cover the waterways that link the famous landmarks, and the canals are home to some of Amsterdam’s most beautiful housing estates, providing a quick and enjoyable mode of transport for visitors and residents alike. The waterways also provide a stunning backdrop for many of the City’s cultural and entertainment events, including the famous King’s Day at the end of every April, the largest floating party you are ever likely to encounter..
