  • Cycle along the banks of Amsterdam's Canal Ring

Overview
Combine a bike ride of Amsterdam’s beautiful 17th-century Canal Ring with a guided walk of the old city on a 2.5-tour. Marvel at the slender merchant houses of Amsterdam’s Golden Age, and get a glimpse of the future for the Red Light District.
What to Expect
Explore the historic center of Amsterdam by bike and on foot, and get a glimpse back into the past and ahead to the future along the way!

Your tour starts in the Canal Ring, built in the 17th century and now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pedal along the banks of the canals, admiring the colorful house boats, narrow merchant houses, and many of the city’s most famous monuments, such as the Westerkerk and Anne Frank House.

Then, take a 30-minute walking tour of the infamous Red Light District. See the highlights of this diverse and tolerant neighborhood, hearing stories about its time as a harbor district, and its emergence as the city’s main site of prostitution.

Learn about Project 1012, designed to regenerate the Red Light District through new business, commercial and living plans. Your guide will talk about the pros and cons of the project, and how it has been received by the locals. See some of the initiatives already under way, many in the former window brothels of De Wallen.
