The Amsterdam Canals are the highlight of the Dutch capital. Most were created during the 17th ‘Golden’ century. They served to protect Amsterdam and were crucial during the 80-year Dutch independence war (The Dutch becoming independent from Spain)
We are gathering at 2 pm (CHANGE!!!) at the Chinese Restaurant in front of Central Station of Amsterdam.
The Amsterdam highlights such as the Red Light district, the Anne Frank House and the Golden Bend are all located on the canals.
The bridges crossing the canals are low as can be seen in the pictures which is why big boats cannot enter Amsterdam. That’s why the conference canal tour will use low boats as shown in the picture.
The canal tour is included in the conference fee, but for those not attending the conference,tickets for the canal tour can be purchased at 80 euro. To guarantee a seat, you need to register here: https://forms.gle/tJaP2XViG3a873RLA
Drinks and snacks will be made available, but no full meal is provided so we recommend that you have taken your breakfast at your hotel.
In the red-light district the canals become even narrower!
The canal tour is an afternoon activity ending the official activities of this conference but surely the start of an exciting night in the beautiful center of Amsterdam!
