11 september 2016 is a new edition of Amsterdam City swim. Many swimmers dive into the water of the canals of Amsterdam all for a good cause A.L.S. If you like to join or click for more  info

Music along the course

At the Jonas Daniel Meyer Square is a DJ that will keep swimmers and public enjoying themselves and there  are also sporting beats on the dock for the Hermitage to give the swimmers a final boost to the finish.

At the finish line at the Keizersgracht our media partner Radio Veronica will produce live radio.

The finish takes place on the Keizersgracht crossing Reguliersgracht. From the bridge Reguliersgracht you will have a limited view of the incoming swimmers in relation to the participants zone and the finish gantry. For the swimmers we organise a quick passage to the buses at the Vijzelstraat (which bring them to the start area again), to ensure the passage Reguliersgracht / Keizersgracht will be closed on the odd side.

Public that wants from the Herengracht to the Prinsengracht, requested to walk around through the Utrechtsestraat.

Cruising Traffic

The entire route of the Amsterdam City Swim is completely sealed from boating traffic. It is also not possible to construct with a boat on the trail. This is in connection with the safety of the swimmers. Keizersgracht has been completely closed since Thursday, September 8th for all the boating traffic associated with the construction of the finish construction.
