Romantic Things to Do in Amsterdam
Take a Private Amsterdam Canal Cruise
While it will set you back more than a few euros, hiring a private boat and guide to cruise Amsterdam's canals is much more romantic than sitting next to strangers on a massive group boat.
Aboard one of the quaint "salon boats," you and your significant other can enjoy a private dinner or just sip champagne as you float along Amsterdam's waters. Rent a Boat Amsterdam is a highly reputable local company that represents several different restored salon boats and comes highly recommended by their guests.
See Amsterdam by Night
The magical quality of Amsterdam by night will put you in the romantic mood all by itself. Bridge lights glow in the canals and couples walk hand-in-hand along cobbled streets as they peek through the windows of stately canal houses. Evenings spent in the city, especially in the grachtengordel, or "canal belt," offers lovers (or friends who hope to be) a shimmery scene to explore together.
To really enjoy the city nightscape, you can book a nighttime canal cruise, which are generally offered in the early evenings. From a basic nighttime to tour to elegant candlelit dinners, there is a cruise for every budget and guaranteed to impress your sweetie.
