Canals in Amsterdam

Amsterdam has one of the largest historic city centres in Europe, dating largely from the 17th century. At this time, a series of concentric, semi-circular canals ("grachten") were dug around the old city centre of Amsterdam

Along the canals houses and warehouses were built. The canals still define Amsterdam's layout and appearance today. Many fine houses and mansions are situated along the canals. Some of the narrow brick houses are gradually sinking because they are built on wooden piles to cope with the marshy subsoil. Amsterdam's three main canals are:
  • Prinsengracht
  • Keizersgracht
  • Herengracht
The semicircular Singel and Oudezijdse Voorburgwal lie in the oldest medieval part of Amsterdam. Nowadays you can still see and experience this marvellous history of Amsterdam by booking a canal cruise and enjoy Amsterdam from the water.

Tall ships from all over the world and hundreds of other historical ships visit the city to moor in its Eastern harbour, where people can admire the ships for four days from the quay or on board.

During the Sail In, the North Sea Canal is absolutely crammed with hundreds (if not thousands) of boats and ships, many of which are steered by landlubbers. In true Dutch style it's all organised very informally, with a lot of freedom for the participants!

Amsterdam History

In the 16th century the Dutch war of Independence begin against the Spanish crown. Religious wars took place all over Europe and Holland became a safe haven for numerous foreign merchants. As a result, particularly the city of Amsterdam, became a center of world trade and shipping.

In the 17th Century Amsterdam's VOC ships sailed all over the world from Africa to Indonesia and from Brazil to Japan.
