Cruise holiday from Amsterdam
Amsterdam is famous for its many well-preserved historic houses, laid out in a pattern of concentric segments shaped like a fan and built on poles driven into the firm, sandy substrate up to 18 metres beneath the top layer of mud.
The city totals around 6,750 buildings from the 16th through the 18th century on a surface area of 2,000 hectares, sliced up by 160 canals with countless houseboats. An endless amount of picturesque bridges connect the city's 90 islands, including eight old wooden bascule bridges such as the Skinny Bridge, one of the city's most photographed landmarks.
