Most Romantic Spots in Amsterdam


Amsterdam can rival such places as Paris and Venice for those looking for romance. Here are just a few reasons why:













Enjoy the magic of a canal boat trip by night
When Hans Christian Andersen visited Amsterdam, he was so impressed by the city that he compared it to a ‘fairy tale’. A magical boat trip begins at Amstel, gliding up the Singel through the tunnel under the Munt, and passes along the Bloemenmarket, packed with flowers of every hue and fragrance. At night, the bridges are all lit up and glow invitingly as the visitor glides further along for a stop off at a picturesque terrace where couples can take a break and view the shining brass fixtures which date from the 18th century.

Beneath the bridge near the Westerkerk, cruisers will come along the Prinsengracht and Keisersgracht canals to the Hotel Pulizer, which hosts a classical music festival the Grachtenfestival in August every year. This historic hotel in the old city centre of Amsterdam even has an art gallery for lovers to gaze at when they are not gazing at each other. During the daytime, the canal boats will take the visitor to the Museum quarter, the Jordaan and Pijp. If visitors wish to rent a boat privately, there is Rent a Boat Amsterdam for a more intimate view of the city. The exclusive Arthouse Marc Chagall is situated in the Jordaan and well worth a visit.

Seventh heaven for romance and good food
The Ciel Bleu (Blue Sky) restaurant in Amsterdam’s Hotel Okura gives young lovers or married couples a panoramic view of Amsterdam and a fine dining experience together. The restaurant has two Michelin stars and an adjacent cocktail bar, the Twenty-Third, named after the floor on which it is located. Visitors can also stay at the luxurious Hilton Amsterdam while enjoying the hotel’s gymn and sauna and just having a really luxurious time together.

Romantic get aways or longer vacations can be booked through, who offers <a href=”” title=”cheap flights to Amsterdam”>cheap flights to Amsterdam</a>, enabling lovers to experience the enchantment of Amsterdam and its canals.

Full moon walks for lovers

No two full moon walks are the same, which is a big part of their beauty and mystery. Couples could be lead through the old Jewish area, go on beer walks via the old brewer’s district or stroll with Sinterklaas (Santa Clause) when he arrives on his steamboat. All walks come with a story, perhaps a love story in this case?
