Historical Landmark

As one of Europe’s diamond capitals, Amsterdam is the ideal place to shop for jewellery. It’s true that you can buy loose diamonds here, but you might prefer jewels you can wear out of the store! For the inside scoop on the diamond industry plus an opportunity to shop, pay a visit to Gassan or Coster Diamonds. You’ll find a number of small specialty jewellers on the shopping streets listed above, but for big names like Bvlgari, Cartier or Tiffany & Co, head straight to the P.C. Hooftstraat.

Canal Cruising

Recreation
12 minutes away
The history of Amsterdam is intimately connected with water. Its 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city. They continue define the city’s landscape and in 2010 Amsterdam's canal ring was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site. Take a canal boat tour in Amsterdam. Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historical centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.
