Singel Canal Tours and Activities

star-5
11,340 Reviews

This slow, winding canal served as a moat around Amsterdam before the capital city expanded in 1585. Today, Singel has become a top attraction thanks to scenic passes and easy access to a number of Amsterdam’s most popular neighborhoods, including the infamous Red Light District.

Travelers looking to explore the Singel can peruse Bloemenmarkt—a well-known flower market that’s comprised of floral-filled boats floating between Koninsplein and Muntplein squares. And a trip along the canal will take travelers past architectural masterpieces from the Dutch Golden era, including iconic houses, the Munttoren tower and the library of the University of Amsterdam. A stroll along the Singel is the perfect way to enjoy an early spring day while taking in the sites, culture and history of one of the Netherlands most favorite cities.

The difference between Amsterdam during daytime and Amsterdam during night time is literally a difference between night and day. In the evening as soon as the sun sets all light will go on, on the bridges and buidlings. Amsterdam will transform in to one of the most romantic cities in the world.
