There’s a never ending selection of things to do in and around Amsterdam whether you’re visiting for the weekend or a fortnight.

Things to do

Get a taste of what to see and do in Amsterdam. There is also much to see and do if you are travelling with children. Many of the attractions and experiences are covered by the I-amsterdam City Card – a handy visitor pass which gets you free entry to dozens of museums and attractions, plus free public transport for the duration of your stay.

Exploring the city

Each area of Amsterdam has its own character and charm, and its own unique variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, museums and attractions. Try out Amsterdam Noord! A free ferry from behind Central Station will take you there in minutes.

Public Transport

Travelling within Amsterdam by public transport is straightforward and convenient. The extensive network connects the city’s neighbourhoods by train, tram, metro, bus and ferry.
Before seeing the sights, you may wish to consult the 9292 route planner or GVB website to help you find the quickest and most convenient way to get from A to B. And you can buy a ticket online in advance.


There are several shops where you can rent bicycles nearby but only Bike rental Muiderpoort is open on sunday as well. They have multiple types of bikes available for rent. It is possible to book your bike online and pick it up at any of our 14 locations in Amsterdam.
