Amsterdam’s Newest Attraction

Since May 2016, The A’DAM LOOKOUT is the new iconic viewing point in Amsterdam and famous from the moment its doors were opened. It symbolizes the main attraction in Amsterdam, just like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the London Eye in London. The new lookout tower offers a spectacular 360º view from Amsterdam with its historic city centre to the port area and the polders to the north.

For the daredevils among us, the LOOKOUT also offers Europe’s highest swing on the roof. Held securely in a safety harness, you swing over the edge of the tower at a thrilling height of almost 100 metres above the ground. You find the LOOKOUT on the top floor of the iconic A’DAM Tower on the banks of the IJ, next to the Eye Film Institute and directly opposite Central station.

While visiting the A’DAM LOOKOUT, you will receive a free digital picture of you visiting the A’DAM LOOKOUT. The tall tower, formerly known as ‘The Shell tower’, offers in addition to fantastic views, also indoor interactive state-of-the-art Amsterdam exhibition. You can also enjoy coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or cocktails in the Madam, a panoramic bar restaurant and club. For an unforgettable evening you can also make a reservation at the revolving Moon restaurant.

Wauw, this is amazing! I also tried the swingset. It’s a good thing I had a drink first. Otherwise it would have been sooo scary..

Eine Top Aussicht eine Top Schaukel wer keine Höhenangst hat ist hier gut aufgehoben und wer es liebt in der Höhe etwas zu machen was nicht jeder macht sollte auf jeden Fall die Schaukel ausprobieren das mit der Fotografiererei ist etwas nervig am Schluss kosten die Bilder auch sehr viel Geld aber wer es mag kann sich ja ein Bild mitnehmen.
