Iconic Canals

Amsterdam is a city synonymous with its canals and is often referred to as the “Venice of the North”. The city centre consists of ninety small islands connected by over two-hundred bridges. The 17th century canal rings were constructed in the Golden Age, and they continue to form the heart of the city's social life, particularly throughout Summer. The most relaxing way to see the sights of Amsterdam is from the water.  We highly recommend joining us for a cruise on Pulitzer’s classic hotel boat.

Countless galleries, plenty of summer festivals, stunning architecture and an ever-evolving creative industry are just the tip of Amsterdam’s cultural scene.
