We then cruise through the peaceful and green Plantage area where we see Windmill "De Gooyer" and cruise along Entrepotdok with beautiful old warehouses, houseboats and the Artis Zoo. Other sightseeing highlights along the route are the  Amstel river with the famous bridges; Magerebrug (skinny bridge) and Blauwbrug, and the interesting historical building De Waag on the Nieuwmarkt.
