I amsterdam City Card

The I amsterdam Card is also known as the I amsterdam City Card and is a great option for those who want to see the best of Amsterdam within a limited number of days. Are you only in Amsterdam for one, two or three days and want to visit lots of sights and tours? Then check out my article on the I Amsterdam Card here!

With it, you can visit the most important attractions in Amsterdam for a favourable fixed price without any “nasty surprises” for your travel budget. I used it myself during my time in Amsterdam and was really impressed.

How does the I Amsterdam Card work?

The name already suggests it: as with the all-you-can-eat principle, you can visit as many attractions as you like with the I Amsterdam Card. Here I show you how the I Amsterdam Card works:

  • Step 1: You decide on the number of full sightseeing days (1, 2, 3 or 5 days)
  • Step 2: You buy the Pass online (this is best done here) …
  • Step 3: … and receive your confirmation by email
  • Step 4: Present this at the ticket counters of the attractions in Amsterdam, it will be scanned and you will be granted access to the attraction.
  • Step 5: This continues until the days you booked in step 1 have elapsed.

What I like

  • Largest selection of TOP attractions of all city passes for Amsterdam
  • Local public transport included
  • Highest savings possible, already with 2-3 attractions per day
  • Easy handling with the app
  • Lots of additional information about Amsterdam’s attractions

What I don’t like

  • There are no discounts for children

What is the alternative to the I Amsterdam Card?

If you are only interested in individual sights in Amsterdam, you can also simply buy the tickets individually.

My tip: make sure you do this before you visit Amsterdam. This will definitely save you time at the attractions (because you already have your ticket) and they are often cheaper than if you buy them on the spot.
