Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

One cannot reach the Danube by water from Amsterdam. One must travel overland into the Austria/HungaryChech region to reach the headwaters of the Danube. The Danube flows into the Black Sea.

I went with an outfit called Canal Company (canal.nl). That particular trip was not a hop-off and hop-on type. It began and ended at the same spot.
