Amsterdam was once known to be a place full of ghosts, witches and demons however the Dutch tend to think of themselves as too rational to believe in ghosts these days. Despite what the Dutch believe, legend has it that the city has so many canals because the majority of ghosts and spirits cannot cross water. See for yourself on a ghost tour.
