Cruising routes

The Amstel begins just below Uithoorn, where the Drecht and Kromme Mijdrecht merge. The name was once Aeme-stelle, meaning as much as “watery area. From Uithoorn, the river flows through Ouderkerk to Amsterdam. There he will encounter several more bridges, including the Berlage Bridge, the High Lock, the Skinny Bridge and also the Amstel Locks. The Amstel ends in the Rokin, at the Spui. Your cruise can begin and end basically anywhere between Amsterdam and Uithoorn. If you start in Amsterdam, your guests can also board elsewhere in the city and we will sail from that spot first to the Amstel River.
