Price Range Amsterdam Houseboats From: € 25.00 - € 45.00
In the 17th century Amsterdam was the most powerful bushiness city in the world.
Living on the water got its charm and gives a feeling of freedom but it wasn't the main reason why people lived on house boats.
In the fifties of the last century more and more people started to live on houseboats because of the shortage of affordable housing in those days.
The inner waters of Amsterdam are nowadays inhabited by some 2400 houseboats. Of those 2400, about 750 are moored within the 17th century canal system of downtown Amsterdam.
Did you know that each year between 6.000 to 10.000 bicycles are being pulled out of the canals?
if you are not able to book a houseboat you can always pay a visit to the houseboat museum
