Amsterdam A mecca for many tourists, whether your searching for an outer body experience, brilliant art shows, bright red lights or even travelling the canals of 'The Venice of the North' there is an abundance of culture in Amsterdam. As you step outside Centraal station you are immediately met with unrivalled architecture and a bustling city with so much to do.

Use your iAmsterdam card to help you get around, whether it's free travel, entrance to museums or even a trip down the canal, your city card will do it all for you. Have your mind altered by some iconic art at the Van Gogh museum or whilst sipping a coffee in a Bulldog Café.
