Board your open-top, double-decker bus at Central Station and explore Amsterdam at your own pace. You can remain on the bus for the entire 2-hour loop as you listen to the informative audio commentary, or choose to hop on and off at any of the 11 stops around the city. Buses depart every 15–25 minutes, depending on the season.
See all that Amsterdam has to offer, including top-notch art galleries and eclectic neighborhoods such as the infamous Red Light District. In addition to main attractions like the thought-provoking Anne Frank House and lovely Vondelpark, you’ll be introduced to some of the city’s lesser-known gems such as Gassan Diamond Factory (see list of stops in the Itinerary). Create a sightseeing itinerary that suits your schedule.
Optional Upgrade: Hop-On Hop-Off Boat Tour
Want to see the city from the water, too? Upgrade your hop-on hop-off bus ticket to include a hop-on hop-off canal cruise. Glide around Amsterdam’s romantic city canals and admire its Golden Age architecture from a different point of view.
