Amsterdam Holland Pass is a discount card that offers free access to most of the (major) museums and attractions in Amsterdam. It can be used in other cities as well; Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. It also gives you free access to use the Public Transport System in Amsterdam (GVB). This card is perhaps the best option to save money on museums and attractions when you are in Amsterdam for a short visit (2-4 days).

Major museums as the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum but also popular attractions like Heineken Experience, Keukenhof Garden, Madame Tussauds and canal tours are included in the Amsterdam Holland Pass. The pass is valid for one year starting from February until March the next year. The Amsterdam Holland Pass can be bought online.

Skip the Line – Fast Track Entry

Skip the line and visit more in less time. At some of the busiest museums and attractions (such as Madame Tussauds, Van Gogh Museum, Heineken Experience and Keukenhof Gardens) Amsterdam Holland Pass holders are able to enter directly. Please note that during peak season even the Fast Track entrances can have a queue.

Free tickets and Discounts

The Amsterdam Holland Pass lets tourists make a choice based on the number of museums or attractions they would like to see during their stay in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Holland Pass is available in three packages; with 2, 5 or 7 tickets.  These tickets or coupons will give you free entry to museums and attractions and there is the extra coupon for free public transport in Amsterdam (GVB). If you have used all of your coupons, you are still able to save money on museums and attractions with the discount card included in the Amsterdam Holland Pass Package.

Besides the public transport coupon, there are two other different coupons included in every Amsterdam Holland Pass: a ‘golden tulip coupon’ and a ‘silver windmill coupon’.
