We used the cards for our final days in Amsterdam and it was an amazing send off. It was a great experience to see so many museums that we usually would not have had the budget for. We especially loved how easy it was to hop on and off trams all day and night for 72 hours!
Overall, I found the I amsterdam City Card really helped us see a lot of the city in a short space of time. However, I would strongly suggest planning ahead and deciding on an itinerary before you arrive. With so much to see, you don’t want to waste any time planning on the day! The I amsterdam City Card also comes with a free city map so it's easy to navigate your itinerary according to the location of the sites.
Here was our schedule for the weekend. These are just some of the places we wanted to visit and had the time for, but there is such a variety of museums and attractions on the list to suit many different tastes:
Activated the card at 11am, let’s get started!
Just remember to check the weather forecast!
What Did We Miss?
My girlfriend and I also spent time working, some more time enjoying a few drinks in the evening and not getting up as early as we could have! Here's just a few attractions that we didn't get to see from the very long list include:
Museum Tot Zover
You can also visit scenic attractions in the surrounding area of Amsterdam such as:
"Volendam", the picturesque fishing village
"Zuiderzee Museum", an open-air maritime history museum
"Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot", a medieval knight’s castle
What Did We Save?
If you are better at waking up early and you can spend all day in a variety of museums then you can save a great deal more than us! Here’s a breakdown of what we saved (per person) with the I amsterdam City Card:
So we saved €48.20 per person, that's €96.40 altogether!
Thanks for the City Cards, I amsterdam!
