It is the perfect tool for having no head aches during the trip. We had 2 cards of 72h each and we visited only 3 museums, Rijkmuseum, Van Gogh and Amsterdam Museum, because it takes time to visit properly and these are the most important to learn also about Nederlands and Amsterdam history, i wanted to visit Rembrand but didn’t. No time. Anna Frank’ s house museum is not included, it should be…The card is very useful for the transport, we traveled a lot from a point to another. The city public transport infrastructure is the best i’ve seen. We use it for a canal cruise with Stromma. And also at parking at P&R Arena to prove we let the car 3 days for visiting the city. Otherwise, 90 euro instead of 3 So, useful, the time slot for museums was easy to reserve. Very good tool

Due to Corona, book all the places time slots in advance. One should book van Gogh museum in advance before getting there. If u want to be sure, ask in advance for certain restrictions that are not in the booklet e.g. A dam lookout accessible with the city card only til 18.

Me and my girlfriend went to Amsterdam in the last week of October for a few days and got the Amsterdam card for 2 days of the trip and we managed to get so much done! We went to the ARTIS Zoo, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, Moco museum and went on a canal cruise. We also went to the Body Worlds exhibition. The card is definitely value for money and I just wish I'd have got an extra day on it to do more things. Amsterdam is amazing and the I Amsterdam City Card is 100% worth getting!
