Destinations on the historical Defence Line

Sail with Amsterdam Tourist Ferry to the former defence line around Amsterdam (part of UNESCO’s world heritage list), and visit Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot or Fortress Island Pampus. Both destinations offer the opportunity to endulge yourself in the unique Dutch history of castles and water defence works. Amsterdam Castle dates as far as 700 years back in history, while Pampus was operational during World War I. Both destinations offer free guided tours, and lots of activities for both adults and children.
