Rent your boat at the Westerpark, hot spot close to the city center
Boats4rent is located right next to the excellent ‘Cultuurpark Westergasfabriek’ (also known as Westerpark). This is very close to the old city center and the most beautiful canals. The jetty is in the canal next to the Bakkerswinkel at Polonceaukade 2 (see Google Maps on this page).
Cross the green metal bridge from the Haarlemmerweg into the park and look to the left. There you will see our jetty. Go around the nice building on the corner on the left. This is the Bakkerswinkel, for fresh food and drinks. They also have a take-away at the back side of the building.
Most beautiful canals of Amsterdam: a ten minute boat ride
From our jetty it is only a ten minute boat ride to the Brouwersgracht, recently voted most beautiful canal of Amsterdam. This Brouwersgracht also connects the other major famous canals (Prinsen-, Keizers- en Herengracht en Singel) and the lovely Jordaan area.
