City Card Amsterdam
The ‘I Amsterdam City Card’ is available for one, two, three, or four days, and allows you free public transport on buses, trams and the metro for the duration of the card. To really get a feel for the history and culture of Amsterdam, cycling and canals are the way to explore the city. The City Card includes a free canal barge cruise which you really should take advantage of. Not just because it’s the way to travel around Amsterdam, but because it will help get the most from your card.
The card also offers free admission to over 40 top attractions and museums in the city. Discounted rates when hiring cycles and scooters, discounts on attractions outside the city, and up to 25% discount in many of the café bars and restaurants around the city. Your free admission will get you into such top line attractions as:
The Van Gogh Museum
The museum not only exhibits the world’s largest collection of canvasses by the passionate Dutch painter, but tells the story of his turbulent life. Letters to his brother about his time in Paris, Arles in the South of France, his deteriorating mental health, and eventual voluntary admission to a psychiatric hospital, provide a thought provoking insight into his world.
Artis Royal Zoo
Established in 1838, the oldest zoo in Holland is right in the centre of the city. Artis also houses an aquarium, planetarium, arboretum, and extensive art collection.Get Your Amsterdam Citycard
Amsterdam’s Film museum
