What You Can Expect

Amsterdam's Icebar Xtracold with Optional Canal Cruise

Amsterdam's Canals

Easily the coolest attraction in town, Amsterdam Icebar Xtracold is made completely from ice — with frozen furniture, walls and even drinking glasses. On arrival in the lounge, you’re greeted with a complimentary cocktail and provided a thermal poncho and mittens before you step into the frosty bar with a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius)!
Once inside, spend 30 minutes relaxing at leisure amid the cozy yet icy ambiance. Enjoy your choice of either two Smirnoff cocktails or two Heineken beers on the house. Take part in a 3D experience riding over icebergs and along steep cliffs in a frozen landscape that emulates that of 16th-century Dutch navigator and Arctic explorer Willem Barentsz.
If you wish, upgrade your experience with an optional canal cruise (see below). You can choose to do both activities on the same day or on alternate days. Simply let the local operator know your preference when redeeming your voucher at the ticket kiosk in central Amsterdam.
Optional Amsterdam Canal CruiseMake your way to the pier near Amsterdam Central Station and board the glass-topped sightseeing boat for your 1-hour luxury cruise. As you glide effortlessly through the city, you’ll see countless top Amsterdam attractions like the affluent Golden Bend (Gouden Bocht) neighborhood, the Anne Frank House and the Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht. Pass the pretty gabled houses that Amsterdam is so well known for, and cruise underneath the Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) while your audio guide informs you of interesting facts and stories. Cruises depart every 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the season.

We went to the icebar not long after opening but we only had 5 minutes before we were due to go in so we kept our drink token for the first bar until we came out of the icebar.

We were given warm jackets with hoods and gloves before we entered the bar and instructions about keeping the door closed and leaving when we were ready.

The first drink we had was beer which was served in a glass made of ice. the bar was at -9.5C which was cold but not unbearably so. We really enjoyed it and took lots of pictures with the ice sculptures.

We then had a rum for our last drink. The bar staff were very friendly.

We were the last ones to leave the icebar.

I highly recommend a visit here.

Definitely do this as it was a lot of fun and the Nutella flavoured vodka was delicious! We didn't have a great deal of time but it was easy to find and good photos too!

Never been to anything like this before so for me was a good experience.
We got good banter off the girl that took us in and served us and was a bit random but a funny show before you go in.
But beware its freeeezing not many can handle being in long, quick enough to heat up again though.

Great tour in Amsterdam, first with the canal cruise. During 1 hour you can see the best spots in Amsterdam from the canal, with the audio guide, you learn a bit about the history and culture of the city. Then the Ice Bar, a lot of fun! The 3 drinks were really a plus and in the Ice Bar, the staff is really friendly, such a good experience!

Definitely a must-see tourist experience! With your purchase you are allotted 3 alcoholic drinks, one to use in their lounge and two to consume in the 20 minutes you are in the ice bar. You have 5 drink options while in the ice bar: Nutella vodka, vanilla vodka, regular vodka all shots, Heineken, or orange juice. If you are a beer drinker start with beer, if so they will give you a larger shot if you choose to do liquor afterwards as you are only allowed one cup in the ice bar. I will say they seem to be very generous and are wanting to get you drunk. I tried the Nutella vodka and she poured what I would consider a full shot and asked me to try it. Once I did and said I liked it she topped me off again, so I essentially got an extra drink. With the above said, I would still say this is suitable for children. Note: in the ice bar there is no mixed drinks allowed, only in the lounge.
