Amsterdam Centraal (Dutch pronunciation: [ɑmstərˈdɑm sɛnˈtraːl]; abbreviation: Asd) is the largest railway station of Amsterdam, Netherlands. A major international railway hub, it is used by 162,000 passengers a day,making it the second busiest railway station in the country after Utrecht Centraal and the most visited Rijksmonument of the Netherlands.
National and international railway services at Amsterdam Centraal are provided by NS, the principal rail operator in the Netherlands. Amsterdam Centraal is the northern terminus of Amsterdam Metro Routes 51, 53, 54, and stop for 52 operated by municipal public transport operator GVB. It is also served by a number of GVB tram and ferry routes as well as local and regional bus routes operated by GVB, Connexxion and EBS.
Amsterdam Centraal was designed by Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers and first opened in 1889. It features a Gothic, Renaissance Revival station building and a cast iron platform roof spanning approximately 40 metres.
Since 1997, the station building, underground passages, metro station and the surrounding area have been undergoing major reconstruction and renovation works to accommodate the North-South Line metro route, which was opened on 22 July 2018. Amsterdam Centraal has the second longest railway platform in the Netherlands with a length of 695 metres.
NEMO Science Museum (from latin Nobody) is a science centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is located in the Oosterdokseiland neighbourhood in the Amsterdam-Centrum borough, situated between the Oosterdokseiland and the Kattenburg. The museum has its origins in 1923, and is housed in a building designed by Renzo Piano since 1997. It contains five floors of hands-on science exhibitions and is the largest science center in the Netherlands. It attracts around 670,000 visitors annually, which makes it the eighth most visited museum in the Netherlands.
The Singel is a canal in Amsterdam which encircled the city in the Middle Ages. It served as a moat around the city until 1585, when Amsterdam expanded beyond the Singel. The canal runs from the IJ bay, near the Central Station, to the Muntplein square, where it meets the Amstel river. It is now the inner-most canal in Amsterdam's semicircular ring of canals.
The church is built on a previously urban site, necessitating a northwest-southeast axis to be adopted, rather than the standard east-west axis. It lies between the street, Prins Hendrikkade, and the canal, Oudezijds Kolk.
When built, the church was called St. Nicholas inside the Walls, i.e. inside the Amsterdam City wall, the oldest part of the Amsterdam defence works. The architect, Adrianus Bleijs (1842-1912) designed the church based on a combination of several revival styles: the most prominent being the Neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance.

In 1991, the brewery opened to the public as a brewery tour and visitor centre, known as the "Heineken Treat and Information Centre" (Although the Heineken "Experience" began in 1991, there were tours of the original brewery while it was still fully operational.) (Dutch: Heineken ontvangst- en informatiecentrum). The attraction grew to become one of Amsterdam's most popular tourist attractions and by 2001 the visitor centre changed its name to "Heineken Experience".
After a year of extensive remodeling and expansion, the Heineken Experience reopened to visitors on 3 November, 2008. The latest transformation of the visitor experience comprises four levels of historical artifacts, product exploration and sampling, and interactive exhibits which employ the latest high-tech multi-media technologies.
Hermitage Amsterdam is a branch museum of the Hermitage Museum of Saint Petersburg, Russia, located on the banks of the Amstel river in Amsterdam. The museum is located in the former Amstelhof, a classical style building from 1681.

Het Scheepvaartmuseum| The National Maritime Museum
The museum is dedicated to maritime history and contains many artefacts associated with shipping and sailing. The collection contains, among other things, paintings, scale models, weapons and world maps. The paintings depict Dutch naval officers such as Michiel de Ruyter and historical sea battles.
The map collection includes works by 17th-century cartographers Willem Blaeu and his son Joan Blaeu. The museum also has a surviving copy of the first edition of Maximilianus Transylvanus' work, De Moluccis Insulis, the first to describe Ferdinand Magellan's voyage around the world.
A houseboat (different from boathouse, which is a shed for storing boats) is a boat that has been designed or modified to be used primarily as a home. Some houseboats are not motorized, because they are usually moored, kept stationary at a fixed point and often tethered to land to provide utilities. However, many are capable of operation under their own power. Float house is a Canadian and American term for a house on a float (raft); a rough house may be called a shanty boat. In Western countries, houseboats tend to be either owned privately or rented out to holiday-goers, and on some canals in Europe, people dwell in houseboats all year round. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, Amsterdam, London, and Paris
The Anne Frank House (Dutch: Anne Frank Huis) is a writer's house and biographical museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank. The building is located on a canal called the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in central Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

Great for the price
, Mar 2020
The boat was great. Comfy and romantic. The Heineken and drinks were wonderful, but the pizza was very subpar. Maybe find a better vendor or a different option. Everything else was very good. Staff did a good job, though another server would have gotten more drinks out faster.
Great experience here even though I don’t drink beer Heineken was delicious here
, Aug 2019
Well organised and very informative staff very friendly too good to learn the history
The pizza canal tour was a lot of fun great to see Amsterdam like this and plenty of wine and pizza and snacks well worth every penny
Just go for Heineken experience and a normal Canal Cruise
, Jun 2019
Heineken Experience was good, each has 2 glasses of beer to drink.
Tour was very interactive and informative.
The Canal Pizza cruise was lousy.
The guide was too busy serving everyone drinks and cant be bothered to explain what are we seeing and where are we or anything.
when we reminded her, she just brushed us off.
Only good point was the pizza was nice.
This is probable the best value for money. The Heineken Experiance is excellent and you get to drink 3 beers each. I am not a beer drinker but it tasted different to the Australian beer we purchase. It was ok. The guide is very informative and each stage of the tour is very interactive which we liked.
You make your own way then to the Pizza cruise which starts from the centre of Amsterdam near central station. The pizza cruise is great there is commentary on the boat explaining all the land marks and the history of the canal. You get to choose your own pizza, drink and ice cream. We loved this cruise.
Both experiences were lots of Fun.
We loved the Heineken Experience...very interactive. Our struggle was in accessing the vouchers. You need to make it easier for the tourist. We shouldn’t have to travel to 3 different places to get our actual vouchers. We should be able to print off internet and go like other tours. I would have given you 5 Stars otherwise.
Good arrangement and good services of the staffs. For Heineken experience, redeem the vouchers in advance in the ticket centre in order to have a fast track to Heineken Museum .
For Canals Pizza Cruise, the Pizza and the dessert are delicious. We enjoyed the tour very much.
Fabulous Experience! Highly entertaining and interesting! I learned a lot about the brand. I especially loved the super cold Heineken at the end of our tour and it was cool to have a bottle of Heineken engraved with our names-great souvenir!
Pizza cruise was amazing. I loved the whole experience cruising down the canals enjoying a nice glass of wine!
This was a great tour. We loved the Heineken Experience which involved a great tour of the brewery and was very informative. There were guides in each of the areas to explain the brewing process. We loved seeing the horses who pull the big beer wagon and of course the beers and the view from the top was excellent. We also purchased a barbeque lunch at the top. All of the staff were very friendly. We also enjoyed our canal pizza cruise which was very well organized with delicious pizzas and unlimited wine and beer. A great way to see the city in the late afternoon. A definite recommendation from us and we would do it again.
