Amsterdam - First Stop on your Rhine River Wine Cruise

Amsterdam, the gorgeous capital city of the Netherlands, is  known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses.  On your Rhine River Cruise you’ll enjoy this beautiful city and its many wonders.  Enjoy a cruise through Amsterdam’s lovely canals which circle around and throughout the oldest parts of the city. Considered the Venice of the north, Amsterdam’s houses were built entirely on water with long poles dug deep into the ground to prevent them from sinking. Over time many of these houses have become fascinatingly lopsided. 

Cross under or over the beautiful Magere Brug bridge, a draw-bridge connecting the sides of the river Amstel. The traditional double-leaf design was originally build in 1670 and has been maintained to keep its historic charm throughout the centuries.  You’ll see the house where Anne Frank and her family lived in hiding during WWII and the famous windmill painted by Rembrandt.

Art fans have many museums to visit in Amsterdam. Those interested in Dutch arts and history will want to visit the Rijksmuseum museum located in Museum Square.  Just around the corner is the Van Gogh Museum, which houses the world’s largest van Gogh collection. For a more personal look at the life of a 17th century Dutch master artist, visit the Rembrandt House Museum. A historic house and art museum, Rembrandt lived and worked in the house between 1639 and 1656.
