Full description
The old city center of Amsterdam is ideal for a nice bike tour. Known the world round as a cycling mecca the city has hundreds of kilometers of cycle paths and quiet canals, so the bicycle is a perfect device to see the many beautiful places that Amsterdam has to offer.

You start the tour close to Central Station. From the old quay you have a beautiful view on the banks of the IJ. After a brief instruction and time to practice for those that are a bit rusty in their bike riding skills, you ride to the beginning of the Canal Belt, a UNESCO world heritage site. Riding through the Jordaan area along the many canals you pass the Anne Frank House and Westerkerk as you make your way to the lively Leidseplein.

Continue the tour in style via the exclusive shopping street PC Hooftstraat to make a short stop again on the Museumplein (Rijksmuseum & Van Gogh Museum). After this stop you return to the canals with its magnificent houses. Make a short stop at the Rembrandtplein and after a salute to the statue of the old master you continue towards arguably the most famous square of Amsterdam, Dam Square. After Dam square, you make a final stop at the Nieuwmarktplein. From here return back to the starting point by passing the Central Station.
