“Being a remnant of the Dutch Golden Age – a time when the Netherlands was a leader in art, architecture and trade – sailing through the canals will literally surround you with history,” says business developer of the Maritime
Museum Ditte Ooms. “You see things from a whole different viewpoint when you see them from the water.” The open boat leaves from the Arsenal, a former warehouse of the Admiralty of Amsterdam and the building of the Maritime Museum. The tour is accompanied by a guide, inspiring visitors with the rich history of Amsterdam.
