How to get there

Coming from the main entrance/exit of Central Station, turn left and walk towards the Grand Hotel Amrath on Prins Hendrikkade 108. Cross the road here and walk toward the ships. Hendrik's Cow Ferry is on the first pier, second ship on the right.

About the area

Our houseboat is docked in one of the oldest harbors in Amsterdam. Although it is very centrally located, the area is really laid back and surprisingly quiet at night (please keep it that way;-)). 


Within a few minutes walking you reach the Red Light District, Central Station and the Nieuwmarkt, as well as the Dam Square and the ferry to the North side of town.

    Houseboat with a great atmosphere Show original

    The houseboat is absolutely centrally located, a few minutes away from the main train station and yet very quiet with a beautiful view. It is simple accommodation, but practically furnished and was absolutely clean. Aart was a pleasant host, always helpful. He had stocked the fridge and the kitchen with some drinks and snacks that we could consume was included. We really enjoyed our time on Hendrik's Cow Ferry!

    What a awesome place

    I will start by saying not the sort to review a place but this place was so amazing I think it will be selfish of me not to let everyone know about this gem of a boat. 

    So the booking was easy and before we went was very easy to speak to the owner about arrival times etc.

    When we arrived, the guy was there to greet us and get us all booked in. He explained everything in detail about the boat and its history. Which was interesting. 

    The stay overall was really good the boat was clean and tidy with everything we needed. The views morning day and night were spectacular. Being our first time on a boat was an excellent experience overall and will definitely be booking this again in the future. Have stayed many places in Amsterdam by far the best all-round place to stay to top it off you can smoke on there. I would like to say for a place you can smoke in it did not smell of smoke at all when we arrived. 

    Great place 

    Thanks, again will be seeing you again for sure.

    Cool city centre house boat in Amsterdam

    We hit Amsterdam with three friends and stayed at this amazing cow ferry (never knew such a thing existed). The space is large and bright thanks to all the windows. Not only do they let in lots of light, but it also gives a great panoramic view over the harbor that we grew fond during our visit. The location is just so amazing: close to central station, red light district, Dam Square, the Nieuwmarkt and last but not least the Zeedijk: superb asian food and lovely bars for wining and dining. 

    The houseboat offers a very special and relaxed atmosphere, so different from any other place we ever stayed. So if you are looking for a unique houseboat holiday in Amsterdam, I can really recommend this one!

    Laid back and comfortable stay

    Our visit to Amsterdam was unforgettable, not in the least because we chose to stay on the houseboat of Aart. Not only is he a great host, but he is also super lucky to have an amazing spot right in the middle of the city centre. When we arrived at central station it was really just a few minutes walking before we saw our boat shining bright along the pier. The interior is eclectic and we liked the atmosphere a lot. Although it is an old ship (don't book this place if you can't stand a few rusty spots), the place is clean and surprisingly comfortable. We loved to chill out on the large couches and sitting in the wheelhouse is also a great idea. Stand behind the big wooden steering wheel and you'll feel like captain right away. Fun fact is that is that the ship was originally built as a ferry for cows, as the name suggests ;-) The bathroom and toilet are straightforward and clean too. Furthermore there is a convenient kitchen, large fridge and even a computer with internet that you can use. Perfect for friends traveling together (there are four bunk beds, so no double beds, this was actually perfect for us). Thanks for having us Aart, and making our visit unforgettable!

    With love from Brighton,

    Louis and friends

    Centrally located houseboat in Amsterdam Show original

    The stay on the boat completely met my expectations, so I spent a great week there. Absolutely central location and yet completely quiet, the pictures of the boat reflect the flair perfectly. Kitchen utensils for preparing small dishes are available. Aart is a good host who always responded to questions at very short notice. I therefore recommend this accommodation.
