Tracing Rembrandt’s Amsterdam – boat tour
A private boat excursion that follows the traces of Rembrandt’s Amsterdam.
You will discover Amsterdam in the age when this extraordinary and multi-talented man was living and working. Rembrandt lived in an era where Dutch culture, learning, trade, global power and political influence were at their height. The city’s population expanded from 60,000 to 200,000 in just 50 years.
The boat will sail through the canals of Amsterdam historical centre. You will start at a tower, which at that time was already one of the old and run-down buildings that he was so fond of, and you will also see the church where his wife Saskia is buried and the beautiful house where he was later to live.
You wil also see the place that was once the site of gallows where criminals were hanged, a subject immortalized by Rembrandt. His work, life and position as one of the world’s most admired painters and 17th century Amsterdam, naturally form the basis of this excursion. A special Rembrandt liqueur will be served on board!
Possible in standard boat or luxury salon boat with catering
