Cruise along Amsterdam's picturesque canals on a Hop-On Hop-Off sightseeing boat and climb up to the top of the A’DAM Lookout, the observation deck with the best views of the city.
Sightseeing boat routes and stops
Amsterdam's sightseeing boats follow two routes. The green line takes one hour and 40 minutes and the blue line takes one hour and 30 minutes. As you marvel at the sights, learn about the history of "Mokum" (popular nickname for Amsterdam) thanks to interesting pre-recorded commentary in English.
Some of the most attractive stops in the city are: Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage and the Town Hall.

How does the boat ticket work?
The ticket for the Hop-On Hop-Off boat is valid for 24 hours. Turn up at any of the jetties to board a sightseeing boat whenever you want. From then on, climb on and off the boat as many times as you want in the following consecutive 24 hours. For example, if you use it for the first time on Tuesday at 2:00pm your ticket will be valid until 1:59pm on Wednesday.
What to expect of the A’DAM Lookout?
We will climb to the top of the observation tower to enjoy the incredible panorama of the city. The historical centre, the busy port, and the charming canals are some of the sights that will delight your eyes. Those looking for an adrenaline rush can ride on the highest swing in Europe (not included) and sway 100 metres above the ground. You will feel the whole of Amsterdam under your feet.
