Description

Join our Historical Amsterdam Free Walking Tour and travel through the historical centre of the most famous city that spins on two wheels in Europe. Learn about the more than seven centuries of Dutch Engineering history which has made it possible for the city to live around the river and walk through the canals. 

With our English speaking guide you will learn how the city became very famous due to its trade which attracted the rich merchants of Antwerp and how nowadays some of the warehouses used during that period still exist and have been renovated as houses.

Together we will understand the complex network of canals and the influence of the Dutch East India Company. We will hear the story of the Trip brothers who personified the Dutch innate ability to make good business and who became big sellers trading in arms during the whole 17th century.

On our Historical Amsterdam Free Walking Tour, you will walk through its over 4000 years of history, from its tribal beginnings through to when it became the most important trading harbour in the world and finally until today, one of the most iconic European capitals.
