Architectural Highlights in Amsterdam

Discover Amsterdam’s architectural highlights and secrets on this small walking tour of max 12 people. Enjoy your guide’s expertise as you start at the roots of this unique maritime metropolis, Amsterdam’s medieval harbor. Most interesting architecture in the Dutch capital can be found along its waterfronts, from the historical canal area to artificial archipelagos.
See the neighborhood’s most striking monuments, markets, street-art hotspots, and little-known local haunts that characterize this beautiful and lively area. Learn how and from where the Dutch began to sail the seas of the world.

Architectural details not easily visible to the eyes become suddenly easy to spot and life gets a little bit slower as you follow your expert guide.
See Amsterdam’s unique housing boats, classic wooden sailing crafts and barges, and the wharf-lined docks which are a bustling place to investigate on foot. The area attracts many artists, and it has a lot to offer visitors.
See the picturesque and costly homes which in the past were warehouses, used for storing the goods that came from Amsterdam’s port.
Continue into the Jordaan, which is Amsterdam’s most famous neighborhood. Watch how the gentrification of decades has worked to attract more galleries, restaurants, specialty shops and upwardly-mobile residents to its higgledy-piggledy picturesque streets.
You will have a deeper knowledge of how Amsterdam has evolved from a merchant stronghold to a predominant European cultural capital as you walk the streets.

Follow your guide to the ‘Nine Streets’ on Amsterdam’s 17th-century canal ring area and enjoy one of the marvels of this world’s architecture. Learn as your guide documents the history of this unique urban development and find out just why this area has been designated by UNESCO as world heritage.
