  • To appreciate the IJ jump on a free ferry and see for yourself a body of water busy with freight moving on barges  more »
  • The IJ divides Amsterdam into a north and the rest part. There are several ferry connections from central Station and Sindskort There is also a Metro, the North/south line. This is also the end point of several river cruises and there is, among other things, the inland waterways that take you to the ports of Amsterdam. In short the IJ is very important for Amsterdam.

  • Had a nice walk along the Sumatrakade from Java Eiland, along IJ Eiland, to KNSM Eiland. Walked primarily along the quays on the IJ side, which can be a little bit boring at times, architecturally speaking, but then, we're here for the view across the IJ, right? With Amsterdam Noord just across the water, with Damen shipyards at the water front on the other side, the ferry shuttling back and forth, the little island in the middle of it all, there is always something to see. Recommended for a nice early evening walk.
