Canal Bus Day Pass

What better way to experience the “Venice of the North” than by canal?

There’s no easier way to travel around Amsterdam than with the Amsterdam Canal Bus Day Pass. Charming canal buses (boats) operate a regular service on three routes: the Green, the Red, and the Blue lines and stop at 14 major attractions and shops. All stops are near must-see attractions such as the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museums, which house the works of such renowned Dutch artists as Rembrandt, Vermeer, and, of course “Fou-Rou” (that’s the “crazy man’s” nickname). Enjoy an authentic Heineken or a coffee-brew at one of the city’s 1,000 brown cafes, named because of their dark-wood paneling. Looking for a potpourri of people-watching? Amsterdam represents at least 172 nationalities! So grab a bench at Vondelpark, which features an open-air concert venue, large outdoor cafes, and a Film Museum. No adult-only trip is complete without a visit to Amsterdam’s uniquely “revealing” Red Light District.
