"House-Boats" Houseboats Tip by codrutz

Houseboats, Amsterdam: 13 reviews and 38 photos

  House-boat in Amsterdam
by codrutz

Everyday Amsterdam's water canals are lively with boats, barges, sailing and rowing boats, motor boats and tour boats.

Not all of them are used for transport, some of them are real house-boats, used both by those who enjoy an original type of accomodation and those who have difficulty in finding an apartment.

There is a limited number of house-boats that are allowed to stay on the canals, so it is not possible for anyone to just anchor and live there.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
