Overview

Combine these two world-famous attractions during your visit to Amsterdam to see as much of the city as possible and discover the many talents of the post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh.

Learn about Van Gogh’s life, read his letters, and admire his paintings and drawings, before or after enjoying a cruise through the iconic canals of Amsterdam. With this combination, you decide the order in which you visit the attractions and save time and money at the same time.

Sunflowers and Potato Eaters

Van Gogh is perhaps the Netherlands’ most famous painter, yet his name is often mispronounced by visitors from abroad. The museum dedicated to his work was completely renovated in 2013, ensuring that it remains a place worthy of displaying his art.

A visit to the Van Gogh Museum is a unique experience. The museum houses the largest collection of Vincent van Gogh’s paintings in the world, with more than 200 of his paintings, 500 drawings, and 750 letters.

It offers the opportunity to follow the artist’s development and compare his work to that of other 19th-century artists such as Gauguin, Manet, and Pissarro. The museum also organizes exhibitions on various topics from 19th-century art history.

Canals, canal houses, and bridges

The Amsterdam Canal Cruise is a perfect addition to a visit to the impressive Van Gogh Museum. During the boat trip, you will get to know the beautiful canal belt that the capital is rich in. It is not for nothing that these canals, which cover no less than 100 kilometers, are on the UNESCO World Heritage List and Amsterdam bears the nickname ‘Venice of the North’. We can rightly call this one of the highlights of Amsterdam.

A canal cruise through Amsterdam takes you through the Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht, and Herengracht, among others. While enjoying the view, you can tune the audio guide to your desired language. You can choose from no less than 19 languages. This way you will learn everything about the rich history of the Amsterdam canals during a canal cruise through Amsterdam.
