What to expect

Amsterdam North (“Noord” in Dutch) is the new hotspot of Amsterdam. The area has a modern feel to it but is still capturing the atmosphere of the city center. Locals have discovered it’s creative energy, but it’s also becoming more and more popular among people visiting Amsterdam.

This is where your canal cruise starts from. But don’t worry, during this 60-minute cruise you will still see all the highlights of Amsterdam, as you cruise in the world famous canals of the old city center. You will see the smallest house, the Amstel river with the Skinny bridge and of course the majestic canal houses from the Golden age.

During the ultimate flight experience “This is Holland” you can feel, see, learn and experience The Netherlands. Breath-taking movie images offer a spectacular perspective from the air, as well as new insights into how the country came into being. Surprising special effects while hanging in a huge spherical screen make you feel you’re flying right past the must-sees of Holland. Feel the wind through your hair as you fly over Dutch world heritage sites. See the canals, polders, bulb fields, Delta Protection Works and other beautiful places in The Netherlands from a new perspective. Learn how this extraordinary country below sea level was created and continues to exist.
