Amsterdam Canals

Being one of the world's most watery cities, Amsterdam is home to more than 160 canals that cover 100km. The canals play an important role in maritime traffic but are also a great source of income thanks to the tourists that flock to the city each year. The canals were built during the 17th century and are now one of the reasons Amsterdam is famous throughout the world. The Canals were placed on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 2011 for their historical importance. The sheer joy of wandering the city and meandering the cobbled streets and canal bridges cannot be duplicated in Amsterdam.

You will find bitterballen on almost all pub snack menus in Amsterdam. The traditional dish is the Dutch version of meatballs made by making a thick stew with meat left to thicken and set in the fridge then breaded and fried. A very popular snack while having an evening out with friends.


Great for those chillier days the famous Dutch version of Pea soup Snert is widely consumed in the Netherlands and can be found in most Street Vendors throughout Amsterdam.


Be sure to try Stroopwafel when you stop for coffee, a Dutch sweet surprise made of two thin layers of baked dough joined together by a caramel filling. It tastes absolutely divine and the best way to eat it is by putting it on the top of a hot cup of coffee until it becomes soft and then simply enjoy.
