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 of Amsterdam that spans the historic city centre, the port area and the polders to the north.

For the daredevils among us, LOOKOUT also offers Europe’s highest swing on the roof of the A’DAM LOOKOUT. 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. LOOKOUT can be found 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.

Then, see the wonderful landscape with your own eyes as you hop on the comfortable bus that will take you within 15 minutes to the countryside just north of Amsterdam. The tour includes eight stops which all promise a unique sight into Dutch history and tradition. As each stop provides its own special slice of culture, this tour has the perfect variety as you explore the Dutch countryside. You can hop-off as often as you wish and enjoy self-guided walking tours with an audio guide or just walk around and admire the typical historical villages. En route, enjoy amazing country views away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

There are buses every 45 minutes from each stop which provides the perfect amount of freedom to enjoy your favorite area at your own leisure! Spending as much or as little time at each stop gives you flexibility that cannot be found elsewhere. When planning your trip to Holland, be sure not to
miss this gem of a tour which is suitable for all!
