The Amsterdam Historical Tram
This summer there’s a complete new and unique attraction in Amsterdam: The Amsterdam Historical Tram, in which Willem takes you back in time. The time when horse and carriage were still part of the usual image of the Amsterdam streets, where merchants traded their fresh fruit and vegetables, and also the time when there was little tourism in Amsterdam. It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it?
The first and last time the Olympic games were held in Amsterdam was in 1928, more than 2,000 athletes from 46 different countries took part. But how did these athletes all come from the city center to the south of Amsterdam? They went by electric tram, for this is also where tram Willem was built for. Willem is the tram that will take you along the most beautiful streets of Amsterdam during a ride in the Amsterdam Historical Tram. In the tram Willem will tell you everything about what he was in the time that he was allowed to make his trips everyday. Unfortunately, Willem never had the chance to transport the athletes to the Olympic area; the tram was delayed and was completely ready for use one year after the Olympic Games…
During a ride with Willem you will enjoy a delicious Dutch tasting at the Amsterdam Proeflokaal in the Olympic area. The tasting consists of three parts, however what they consist of I will keep to myself!. After the tasting you ride past the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam, so keep your camera at hand and let yourself be dragged back in time.
But now, in 2018 Willem has been removed from the depot to show everyone his city every Saturday and Sunday! The Tram departs from probably the most famous spot in the city: Dam Square, and will leave 5 times per day starting at 10 AM. Be quick since there are only limited seats available per ride!
