What price is the IAmsterdam City Card?

Is there anything else I need to know?

Yes!

The IAmsterdam City Card is active for the relevant time period from the time and date on which you activate it. So, for example, if you activate your 48 hour IAmsterdam City Card at 8pm on a Friday, it will be valid up to 8pm the following Sunday!

You can get either a virtual or physical IAmsterdam City Card. The virtual one is held in the IAmsterdam App which is available from the App Store for iPhone users or the Google Play Store for those with an Android device.

You can also use the IAmsterdam App to help find places near you with free/discounted entry and to plan your trip!

Is there Actually a Saving?

Most definitely!!! We spent a day and a half exploring Amsterdam and we would’ve spent €116.50 on transport, activities and attractions. the 48 hour IAmsterdam City Card costs €85. (We went to some lesser known and less expensive attractions, so if you decide to go to the big ticket sites, you’ll save even more!)
