Night Amsterdam Canal Cruise
One of the most known aspect of Amsterdam is its canals. And a canalcruise is a fitting way to see its streets, people and architecture.
During the day vs. during the night
The cruise during the night is a copy of the day cruise. It is ordered from the same company on the same webpage. You just select different time for the ride.
But the atmosphere is quite different. It feels much stronger, even a bit adventurous. And the lights of the city are nice to look at.

Amsterdam canal cruise at night
To experience the canal cruise at night is very recommended. It is made even more atmospheric by the city lights painting an emotional mood. The houseboats are also lit and slowly flowing next to them, in a canal, in a 17th century neighbourhood, is an experience that is very memorable.
