Rent a houseboat for a unique and memorable stay in Amsterdam

With more than 165 canals and 1,500 bridges, it isn't hard to see why Amsterdam is dubbed the Venice of the North. But instead of gondolas, you'll see houseboats – many of which are available as vacation rentals. They're the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the Dutch capital's myriad attractions, from centuries-old churches to museums brimming with priceless art to iconic windmills. Whether you're a solo traveller backpacking your way through Europe, a couple looking for a romantic holiday, or a family or larger group, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see and do in Amsterdam.

History

If your Dutch vacation rental is a houseboat, chances are you're in the Canal Belt, whose waterways were developed in the 17th century to boost commerce. Head to the 13th-century Dam Square in the historical city centre, where you'll find the Royal Palace of Amsterdam. Built in the 17th century as a city hall, it's a grandiose example of neoclassical architecture from the Dutch Golden Age. Close by are the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) – consecrated in 1409 – and the Oude Kerk (Old Church), which dates from 1306. The 17th-century Rembrandt House Museum and the canalside Anne Frank House are some other must-sees for history buffs visiting Amsterdam.
