Did you know that the Port of Amsterdam is the world’s largest gasoline and cocoa port? As the largest petrol port in the world and with more than 600,000 tons of cocoa beans finding their way to the city every year, Amsterdam is a leading player in these unique markets. How being small can lead to worldwide exchange!
Sail between the large cargo ships and perhaps a giant cruise ship on a Port of Amsterdam tour that takes you to places that are only accessible for commercial shipping. Pass the cocoa warehouses, where cocoa for the tastiest chocolate like Verkade, Droste and Tony Chocolonely are stored and transshipped. Amongst other unique views, you'll pass a car terminal that processes 200,000 cars per year and discover how the port transforms into a circular hub.
During the two-hour Amsterdam Port tour, you will see the port in its current form and look ahead to the time when the Port will operate fossil-free and sustainable. Learn about the 'circular Port' and hear more about recent and future developments in the field of energy transition.
In good weather, you can enjoy the panoramic deck of the ship, where you have an unobstructed view at the largest cocoa and petrol port in Europe. In bad weather, you have the comfort of the ship's luxurious interior, where the catering is also located.
