We encourage all our visitors to take the public transport. Stops with close proximity to the route are: Amsterdam Central Station (train, tram, metro) and Waterlooplein (tram, metro).
The best way to get around Amsterdam is by bike. It is possible to rent one at the larger train stations, or just ask your hotel. There are plenty of bicycle stalls and parking spots along the route.
If you do decide to come by car, there are several parking options available. On the website of the City of Amsterdam you can find an overview of parking garages and Park and Ride locations (P+R). Click here for the overview.
The route is accessible for people with health conditions or impairments. Please do take into account that the route goes through the historical city centre of Amsterdam, with uneven pavement and bridges. Not all boat companies are wheelchair accessible, always check with the cruise company before booking. If you wish to remain offline during your visit, there is a limited number of printed route maps available at our information points.
You can purchase the route, including artwork locations and descriptions, via our app; as a cultural foundation that gets almost no subsidies, we are dependent on your contribution. The app can also be used by visitors who have their own boat. The festival cruises depart from different locations. You can find more detailed information in our ticket shop and on your ticket.
