The tour goes via the Herengracht, Leidsegracht, Prinsengracht, and then again via the Amstel towards Stopera. There, the Good Saint is given a short word of welcome by mayor Halsema and the children's mayor. The mayors will also hand over the Amsterdam city key to Saint Nicholas. After a short stop, the Saint continues his journey on horseback, followed by a procession of musicians, floats and his Pieten.
