On our Open Boat goes Golden Age canal cruise you discover what the Golden Age and Rembrandt meant for Amsterdam.
Do you want to find out how the impact of the Golden Age is still noticeable in the city of Amsterdam? Your skipper, who also acts as your personal guide, tells you all about the sights and history during the tour that is created by our own art historian.
With this open boat tour we celebrate the Year of Rembrandt and the Golden Age. The 17th Century was a very important time for Amsterdam. The city flourished from the huge economic welfare and also art experienced its heyday during this century.
Do you know, for instance, where in Amsterdam Rembrands world famous Nightwatch hung before you could admire it in the Rijksmuseum? This year, not only it is possible to gaze at his beautiful artwork in the museums but you can also retrace his steps and relive history – while being on a sustainable open boat and cruising through the highly celebrated canals of Amsterdam.
The Open Boat goes Golden Age tour departs from both Rijksmuseum and Damrak in the morning and in the afternoon. On both tours you are able to enjoy a complementary drink (coffee, tea, beer or soda).
