Boat map

A boat cruise lasting two hours will take you to the most beautiful, atmospheric and enchantingly illuminated places in Amsterdam.

The meeting point for the Dinner Cruise on Tuesday June 23rd is the "Rederij Lovers", which is located just in front of the Central Station of Amsterdam. The map, opposite, shows the meeting point in relation to the Central Station (click to enlarge).

Ask your hotel for the fastest way to Central Station. All tram lines from the major squares have as a final destination Central Station and if you are going by foot then check for the signs to Central Station – you will find them on all major junctions/squares in the centre of Amsterdam.

If you are coming by car then there is paid underground parking just underneath the meeting point. The name of the parking place is "P1 Amsterdam Centraal" and the address is "Prins Hendrikkade 20a".

Please be at the meeting point by 20:00. The boat will leave at 20:15 and if you are late there will be no possibility of joining later.
