Getting enough sleep during your Amsterdam visit? Forget about it! Snoozing is no option with everything the city has in store for you during the day and what your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket brings you at night. Amsterdam asks for action and with this list of Amsterdam activities, you will be sure to get plenty.We have created a good mix of partying, culture, shopping and feeling like a local.

Get Lost in your Own World at HUSH Silent Disco

The first silent disco in the Netherlands and proudly part of the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket deal. A big sound installation is something you won’t find in this club, which doesn’t make sense at first. Instead, everyone gets a headphone upon entry. It can be connected to three different channels, so you can choose what music you want to dance to.

So don’t be surprised to see the person next to you dancing completely out of rhythm, he or she might be moving to an entirely different beat.You can fully immerse yourself in the music of your choice and still bring that friend you normally don’t go out with because you don’t like the same music and both have a great night.

Looking for someone special to dance with? No problem either, the color that lights up your headphones indicates which channel you’re tuned in on, making it easier to find your match. And if you want to get to know a bit more about each other than music preference, simply take off your headphones and have a conversation that doesn’t require you trying to drown out the music and losing your voice for a few days.

HUSH is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and offers a different musical menu each day. Book your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, add your special events and dance to your favorite tune.

Lookout over Amsterdam

Did you sleep in? Already ate breakfast? Great, then you are ready to head off to the Amsterdam Lookout. You can do this activity this morning and go there around 10:00. This lookout, about 100 meters above the ground, gives you a fantastic view over Amsterdam and its surroundings. Because of its beautiful location on the IJ you will literally float over the water.

If you're looking for a truly breathtaking experience, step into the highest swing in Europe. This swing will make you swing above the city. Are you up to it? For just €19.00 you can start your day swinging before the music of the Amsterdam nightlife can be heard! You can easily reach the Lookout from the Central Station with the Buiksloterweg ferry. This is completely free and there is no need to book a ticket in advance.


Cruise Through The Canals

Looking for a more quiet activity? Then step into one of the boats that will give you a tour of the Amsterdam canals. You can take this tour of at least one hour all day long, as the boats leave every half hour. If you prefer to take a tour on your own, you can rent a boat with your friends. Bring some food and drinks (note that the captain is not allowed to drink), and your morning will be more than filled.

Amsterdam's canals are wonderful for watching the city unfold. Watch as it slowly gets busier and busier in the city that never settles down. If you prefer something more active, then renting a bike is a great recommendation. A ride along the Amsterdam canals will provide you with beautiful views. Be aware, however, that the average Amsterdammer moves around on a bicycle. With almost 900,000 bicycles in the city, you won't be the only one!

Cool afternoon activities in Amsterdam


Heineken Experience

One of the fun things to do in the afternoon is the Heineken Experience. This museum is very popular because of the brand's worldwide popularity. Even if you're not a fan of an old and familiar beer, this experience is still worthwhile. You will find out how the brewing of this delicious lager is done. When you buy a ticket, €18.00 by the way, you also get two tokens to have a beer with your friends in the bar. If you prefer an extra cold Heineken, you pay two tokens for it.


Take a Day Trip out of the City

A good reason to take it easy during the day is having enough energy for all the action during the night. So escaping the city for a day to find a quiet destination is a great way to relax and still see something special and unique. And there are plenty of options for Amsterdam activities just outside of Amsterdam.

Zaanse Schans

It’s just a 20-minute train ride away from the center, yet a completely different world. The long row of windmills lining the Zaan river provide epic views that are beyond Instagrammable. It’s just a short walk from the train station and in one of the streets you pass you’ll find ‘Het Zaanse Bakkertje’, a very cute(vegan - friendly) bakery with space to sit down and have a homemade lunch.

Beach time

In only 30 minutes you travel from Amsterdam Central Station to Zandvoort aan Zee. The perfect destination for an afternoon beach walk or a romantic dinner watching the sun set over the sea. Stroll the boulevard, get a little active with some water sports or work on that tan in the sun. < b > Forgot to bring your swimwear ? No pants no problem !You will probably find something appropriate in one of the boutiques in town or just head over to the nudist beach.

Zuiderzee Museum

Enkhuizen is a small city on the shore of the Ijsselmeer, the lake that used to be the Southern Sea and home to one of Holland’s nicest open - air museums.Go when the weather is nice, and travel back to a time when people lived off the sea. Hundreds of authentic, historic houses and other buildings like windmills make up a tiny village that shows you what things were like back in the days. Try some old - fashioned sweets from the candy shop and have a bite of freshly smoked eel.

Feel the Local Feels in a Dutch pub

There’s no better way to immerse yourself in Dutch ‘gezelligheid’ than to go to a local ‘kroeg’. And that’s exactly why we have included many of them in your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket.

Sportsbar Heffer is a great choice for a first stop when you’re coming from central station and haven’t seen the Red Light District yet.Your ticket gets you two beers for the price of one and after you’ve had a few, make your way to Bubbels on Leidseplein. Flash your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket at the door to get free entry and a welcome shot. Bubbels doesn’t need an excuse to party so every night of the week is a celebration. There’s live music and apart from playing hits and dance music you’ll hear a few Dutch gems from time to time. Just pretend you know the words, sing along and make new local friends.

Just a small block away,  Surprise Bar is ready to welcome you with open arms and another free welcome shot. The music switches back and forth to chart-hits and good old classics and the crowd is always in party mode.

New to the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket family is El Punto Latino. The hottest Latin club in town, for those looking to loosen up the hips to tunes a little bit smoother than Dutch classics.

Fun activities in clubs and bars in Amsterdam

Club Paradiso

Paradiso is best known for its unique location and the acoustics that come with it. Because Club Paradiso is located in a church, the acoustics are pretty much insane. This isn't one of the coolest clubs in Amsterdam for no reason. With its three floors, it offers enough space for you and your friends to go crazy. Because of its central location near Leidseplein, the club is very easy to reach by streetcar or bus. With streetcar 2 or 12 it is only 15 minutes from Central Station!

Club Paradiso organizes special events almost every day. By using the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket you and your friends get free access to these events. The variety of genres, such as House, R&B/Urban and Techno make sure there is a night of fun for everyone! Just buy the ticket, select the event and get ready to dance to the hottest beats in one of the best clubs in Amsterdam!

Have a Drink on a Terrace

When the first warm rays of the year hit the city, the Dutch switch right into summer mode. The temperature may still be well below 20 degrees Celsius, it doesn’t stop us from going straight to a nice terrace after work.When you start hearing the phrase ‘terrasje pakken?’ everywhere around you, it means the locals are ready to grab a drink outside. Are you coming along? You’ll see cafe’s putting chairs out front everywhere throughout the city, but there are a few spots that are favorite among locals.We do advise you to come early because once we have conquered a spot we ain’t going anywhere until closing time.

Jack & Jackie

Rooftops are always a good idea. Jackie has the views, the lounge area, and the cocktails.It’s an excellent place to start the night and finish it at Club Jack a few floors down. With your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket you get free access to selected events at this club, so check them out when you’re purchasing your ticket.


If there’s a terrace that deserves a spot on this list, it’s the Skylounge.You’ve probably seen it, on your way into the city. It’s located right next to the central station in the Doubletree Hilton hotel and as you might expect, the terrace is spacious, stylish and the service is excellent.Whether you start with coffee or cocktails, expect nothing but the best. And of course, that applies to the view as well, arguably the nicest in town and pictured on many postcards and posters.

Cafe Van Zuylen, Torensluis

Your typical Amsterdam terrace with canal views for those looking for a local feel a bit closer to the ground.Is Van Zuylen’s terrace full? No problemo, a number of cafe’s surrounding this spot have a terrace outside so just pick one you like.Have a seat at watch the cyclists, boats, and visitors who arrived too late to find an empty a spot.


Another destination where relaxing drinks can slowly turn into a night out.

At the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket checkout, you can select special events at VLLA without any extra costs.



Air Amsterdam

This club appeared on Amsterdam's nightlife scene in 2010, but since then it has been impossible to imagine life without it. With countless events hosted weekly, it is the Rembrandtplein's go-to place for nightlife. Due to the central values of creativity, diversity and freedom, the club is very popular with a very large audience.

This club is ranked among the best 100 discotheques in the world every year and with good reason. This is partly due to the international program on offer, one of the best sound systems in the Netherlands and its central location in Amsterdam. Please note that a dress code usually applies here. The bouncers have the option to refuse you based on your attire.

The club is closed from Monday to Wednesday, but from Thursday onwards, special events are organized almost every day until late at night (04:00 or 05:00). If you would like to attend one of these events during your visit to Amsterdam, the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket is the answer. This ticket gives you entrance on Thursday and Sunday!

Combine the Best activities

If you can't choose between all these activities in Amsterdam, you can also opt to spread them out over several days. The Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket gives you that option. Buy a 1, 2 or 7 day ticket and enjoy the many benefits this ticket offers. Combine the best activities and make the most of your time in Amsterdam!
