We've compiled a list of must-not-miss activities, categorized by four different time slots: morning, afternoon, evening, and night. As the cherry on top, we'll also provide some tips for booking accommodations, ensuring you can enjoy a carefree and unforgettable weekend in Amsterdam! And we have something special in store for you, but you'll have to keep reading to find out!

Start your Weekend with a Bang!

Rent a Bike 

Renting bikes provides you with the experience that many Amsterdam locals enjoy daily. In the beginning, navigating the bustling city may take some getting used to, but over time, you'll relish the experience of cycling along the iconic canals. A weekend in Amsterdam is incomplete without this adventure.

Renting bikes is a fantastic idea overall because it allows you to quickly move from one activity to another. This way, you can savor the Amsterdam morning charm and fit in multiple activities throughout the day. After a brief bike ride along the canals, let's smoothly transition to the first activity of the morning!

Weekend Amsterdam

Amsterdam Lookout

Park your bikes at the Amsterdam Lookout! Why? Because this gem offers you a fantastic view of an awakening Amsterdam. This activity is a must for a weekend in Amsterdam. For just €19.00, you can start your day right and soar above Amsterdam's city life. From 10:00, you have the opportunity to float about 100 meters above the ground. Be sure to reserve in advance, especially as there can be long lines, especially in the summer!

Visit a museum

We cycle towards a bit of educational enrichment in Amsterdam, where you'll step back in time. Amsterdam is renowned for its various museums, and, in our opinion, a visit to the Anne Frank Museum should not be missed. This adds an educational touch to your weekend in Amsterdam without taking up hours of your time. Book the activity in advance as it can get incredibly crowded. With pre-booked tickets, at least you won't have to wait in line for this one.

Split the Day in Half

CityGame Amsterdam

Afternoon calls for parking the bikes and embarking on an adventure. A CityGame in Amsterdam is the perfect way to kick off the afternoon! Luckily, there are plenty of different CityGames to choose from, ensuring there's a fun option for everyone. Play your own version of the famous 'Who is the Mole?', experience the Amsterdam version of CSI, or get to know Amsterdam with a CityGame through the Jordaan district.

Thrills at Aloha

Aloha guarantees an afternoon of fun for you and your friends! Opt for a lively game of laser tag, go bowling with your hands and/or feet, or choose a relaxed afternoon of glow-in-the-dark mini-golf. There's something for everyone. If you're not in the mood to search for a restaurant, Aloha also offers a BBQ & Grill restaurant, setting the stage for a great evening!

And what's the beauty of it all? The Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket! The Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket lets you bring a second person who can enjoy free laser tag or glow golf. Prefer a longer session of bowling? With the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, you can easily add an extra hour. Aloha is just a short 10-minute ride from Central Station. Thanks to the benefits of the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, you can save money to use for a fantastic night out in Amsterdam!

Heineken Experience

Starting the afternoon with a drink but don't want to spend the entire time on a terrace? Visit the Heineken Experience. An Amsterdam weekend is incomplete without a visit to this popular and famous brewery. Thanks to the abduction (and the delicious beer, of course), Heineken has become a globally renowned brand. For €18.00, you get a tour of the brewery, concluding with a refreshing glass of beer. The price also includes two tokens, allowing you to redeem them for two glasses of regular beer or a glass of Ice Cold beer!

Prepare for an Unforgettable Night Out

Hard Rock Café

After an active afternoon, we're ready for some food. And what better way to prepare for a great night out than with a hearty burger and fries? An added bonus is that there's always music playing at the Hard Rock Café! So, while enjoying a bite and a drink, you can groove to the best tunes! A true Hard Rock Café fan? You can, of course, score the iconic shirt here! Real fans know what this is all about!

A nice extra is that with the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, you can kick off the evening just right. You get a substantial discount on cocktails. With the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, you get the second cocktail entirely free, so you and your friends can warm up nicely for Amsterdam's nightlife!


TIP: Hard Rock Cafe Gold Diner - Enjoy legendary burgers, savory sandwiches, and creamy pasta, topped off with a decadent brownie for only €27.50. Click here to book and reserve ➜

Take Your Time with VR Dining

If you're not done with your activities and want to go all out, opt for a VR dinner. What's it all about? Between meals, you'll be handed a VR headset with controls, allowing you and your team to play various games and complete tasks. You can communicate with your friends during the game since you'll be working together to accomplish the challenges.

While dining, there's plenty of room for a tasty bite and a drink. This is included in the price, so for a delightful dinner with games, it's a fantastic option, highly recommended, especially for the younger crowd.

A cheap Bite

And, of course, a fast-food chain is always an option to kick off the night out right. A weekend getaway is not complete without a visit to Burger King. The delicious burgers from Burger King provide a tasty and quick bite both before and after hitting the town. With the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, we have something special for you. If you opt for a Whopper or Long Chicken Burger, you can later upgrade it to a menu for free. This way, you'll save a few euros that you can spend in one of Amsterdam's fantastic clubs!

And Early (in the morning) to Bed Again

You've had an amazing day with various activities, a delicious dinner with friends, and a night out to remember. But a weekend in Amsterdam is not complete without an overnight stay! Therefore, we list a few sleeping options for you, starting with a budget-friendly hotel; The Student Hotel!

The Student Hotel

As the name suggests, this hotel is very popular among young people. Why should you choose it? Think about the price, the fact that it has a gym and a bar, and this hotel is located right in the historic center of Amsterdam. Extremely close to all the highlights of the city!

Lloyd Hotel

The Lloyd Hotel completes your weekend getaway. The great thing about this hotel is that there are rooms available for every price category. Whether you're looking for a bit more luxury or want to stay on a budget, Lloyd Hotel offers you the opportunity.

Stay Okay Hostel

Stay Okay Hostel is one of the hostels in Amsterdam that is worth considering. Not only is this option affordable, but you also stay within walking distance of Dam Square and the center of Amsterdam.

The Bulldog

This hostel is also located near Dam Square, affordable, and offers you the opportunity for an overnight stay close to the city's highlights. What makes this place so special, though, is that the owner of this hostel is an avid traveler himself. He knows exactly what you, as a vacationer, are looking for to make the most of your weekend in Amsterdam. You can choose a room for you and your friends or opt for a shared sleeping space, naturally at lower costs.


If you can't find anything else, there's always the option of Airbnb. This service allows you to stay in people's homes. However, it's often more expensive than a hostel, and the host may not always appreciate you arriving at 5 in the morning. We would, therefore, advise considering this as a last resort.

As you can see, there are plenty of options to fill a weekend in Amsterdam with activities for you and your friends. Combined with the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, you not only experience a fantastic weekend getaway but also save some money in the process! And who wouldn't want that? Seize the opportunity now, book that Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, and enjoy a day full of benefits!
