Free tickets and Extra 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 pass is available in three packages; Small (3 tickets) , Medium (4 tickets) and Large (6 tickets).  These tickets or coupons will give you free entry to museums, attractions and transport (free 24h public transport, Canal Cruise in Amsterdam, Hop On Hop Off City Sightseeing or bike rental)

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 and even 20% discount on a lot of country side tours.

  1. I am planning to visit Holland with my son who is 20 years old from March 22 to 29, 2018.
    We are planning to visit RijksmuKinderdijk, Heineken experience, Van Gogh Museum, Tulip Museum, ons’Lieve Heer op Solder, Amsterdam History Museum, Stedelijk, De Haar Castle, Museum Speelklok, Museum Bojimans van Beuningen, Kinderdijk, Mauritshuis, Keukenhof
    What pass should we buy and how the pass will be widely used, thanks

  2. Hi Team

    We are a group of 5 adults travelling to Amsterdam in the month of May 2018 between 22 to 26. We want to travel to Geithoorn and stay for a day before settling in Amsterdam. Our base of stay after Geithoorn will be Haarlem and so will be travelling everyday to the central and other places. Other places include, zaanse schans, volendam, marken, hague, delft. Within Amsterdam we would like to explore as much as possible including museums, red light area and other attractions. We were assuming that I Amsterdam card will cover all the transportation and entry to museums. Suddenly, I have come across Holland Pass and Regional transport pass – so very confused which one to opt in order to cover our entire tour including site seeing, entrances and public transportation within Amsterdam and to other places mentioned above.

    Thanks & Regards

  3. Hi,
    How much discount of Amsterdam & Region Travel Ticket I can get if I use Holland Pass?
    Thank you.

  4. hello
    how these passes works with public transport
    is their a limit use to the public transport or as much as we want

  5. I will spend 4 whole days in the Netherland. I will live in somewhere near Sloterdijik station and am going to Keukenhof, Giethoorn, Het Nationsle Park De Hoge Veluwe and Rotterdam + Kinderdijk. The transporation makes me so confused.
    Do you think if I buy a Holland Card, it should be the least expensive way?Could the Holland Card be used everywhere in the Nederland on train (including Sprinter, Intercity), bus, tram, boat?
    Where I can buy? If I buy 4 consecutive days, would the price be reduced?

  6. I am traveling to Amsterdam on 8th to 11th May. I am thinking of buying the medium Holland Pass. I have gone through the website however one thing is not getting cleared. On buying holland pass will the local transport (tram, ferry etc.) become free for me for all the 4 days of my stay? Also is canal cruises free with this medium pass?

  7. Dear Sir/Mme,
    On the Holland Pass publications for 2016, the Large Package (75 EUR) contains:
    3 gold free entrances
    3 silver free entrances
    1 free transport

    Is this valid for 2017 ?
    Best regards,
    Sorin Reznic

  8. there is a very big confusion on silver tickets. i think you guys should publish the list of museums and attractions that we can enter with silver tickets. how can we arrange places that we go when we dont know which ones are avaliable to enter with silver tickets?? for example if i buy a large holland pass ticket, i will choose van gogh, rijksmuseum and stedelihj museum for golden tickets and im planning to choose canal cruise, hopp and hoff bus and one more thing. but how can i know which museum or atractions are included to silver or golden tickets. you just said that less expensive things are included to silver tickets but what is the kriteria? please inform me thank you YAMAN

  9. Dear Sir/Madam,
    Does the pass cover free transport between Amsterdam and Amstelveen and Amstelveen to keukenhoff?
    Planning to visit rijksmuseum, van gogh museum, keukenhoff and take canal cruise. Stays in Amstelveen for 3 nights. There are 5 adults traveling. Which pass should we get? Thank you in advance.
    Best regards,
    Ktjia

  10. Hi, with the Amsterdam Holland Pass, how do we get the entrance ticket at museum? Is there a special queue for it or we need to queue at normal line to exchange to ticket?

  11. Good afternoon,

    We are planning to buy a Holland Pass Large. Can we reserve our excursions online ahead of time once we have bought the Holland Pass? I don’t see how we can do this without paying for the excursions.

  12. Hi,

    I am coming with my daughter who is 8 years old. Does she need her own pass as well?

  13. Hello,
    Im planning to visit kekenhof directly from schippol airport, does holland pass cover transportation to kekenhof from schipol and return also?

  14. Hi, we are 3 friends and we are planning a plan on 27 april in amsterdam. We would like to go Anne Frank House, a canal cruise, Heineken Experience, Vondelpark, Dam Square, Red Light District and also cycling tour. Would you prefer which card is suitable for us?
    Also we want to go Bruge and Bruksell from Amrterdam – train or bus? Which card do we buy to this transport?

    Thanks and regards,

  15. We are a family of four. If we all want to visit the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum, and three of us will go to the Stedelijk, how many Amsterdam Holland passes would you buy?

  16. Hi – I will be visiting Amsterdam for 1 full day on May 19th, arriving the night before and leaving the morning of May 20th. I am interested in visiting the Anne Frank House, Keukemhof (not a tour), Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Canal cruise and/ or hop on hop off, Red Light district walking tour. Is this an ambitious schedule? What Holland pass would you recommend?. I was thinking of starting with the Keukemhof arriving at 8am when it opens. Any suggestions on how to organize the day would be greatly appreciated.

    Best,
    Dora

  17. Hi – I am visiting Amsterdam for 1 full day on May 19th arriving the night before and staying 2 nights.

    I would like to go to the Anne Frank House, Keukemhof (on my own), Rikjsmuseum, Van Gogh Musuem, Canal cruise and Red light district walking tour. Is this an ambitious schedule? What is the recommended holland pass? Would appreciate your suggestion on order of events. Thinking of starting with Keukemhof since the gardens open at 8am. Many thanks.

    • Hi there. I think you are trying too much in 1 day. It is very late in the season for Keukenhof so not as spectacular as earlier in the season and really will take up most of your day. My advise is rather do the things you have planned for central Amsterdam and do Keukenhof on another trip.

  18. My husband and I will be in Amsterdam from March 27th to the morning of 30th. If we have the time, we would like to do/visit the following: Van Gogh, Anne Frank, Rijksmuseum, Muiderslot and Keukenhof. Maybe a canal cruise if we can. What would be the best card to get? It seems like the Holland Pass- but the Silver/Gold/Large/Small is a little confusing. Any help or recommendations are welcome!

    • Hi Tara, I think the Amsterdam Holland Pass (LARGE with 3 golden & 3 silver tickets) is the best option for you: http://www.amsterdamtourist.info/tips/amsterdamdiscount-cards/amsterdam-holland-pass/
      There are several options to visit the keukenhof; cheapest is to go with train and bus (public transport), but you have to pay for that separate. If you don’t want to go on a canal tour the Musemkaart is the best option; you only have to pay for Keukenhof visit and Anne Frank Hiuse is included (with the Amsterdamn Holland Pass and I amsterdam Card the Anne Frank House is not included)

  19. My wife and I will be visiting Amsterdam in April for 5 days. We would like to go to the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Keukenhof, the Anne Frank House, Kinderdijk and also do a canal cruise and possibly cycling. We will also need to use public transport in the city. Which option would be better for us?

  20. Does this pass cover the Mauritshuis in Den Haag ?

  21. Hello, sorry I have one more question, with Amsterdam Holland Pass you also have to reserve a precise day/ hour slot to visit Van gogh museum and Keukenhof?
    Or you just go there and with fast track you enter?

    Thank you so much!
    Vera

    • Hi Vera, with the GOLDEN tickets from the Amsterdam Holland Pass you have access to Van Gogh Museum and Keukenhof via the Fast Track Entry.

      • In fact Holland Pass does not allow you fast track access to Van Gogh Museum as at April 2017. You still join the same queue as others for getting tickets. Just that the others pay by cash etc and you pay by the gold ticket.

  22. Does the Holland Pass include public transportation (trams, subway. buses) within Amsterdam?

  23. Do i have to use one of only 2 gold tickets for thr Rijk or Toussand museum or can i use both on other attractions? Is the countryside and windmill excursion 2 silver AND a gold, leaving only a single silver with medium pass

  24. Thanks for Your reply , next question:
    With the small Holland Pass I have only one Museum (Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum
    free.So far I understand I can use the 10% discount for one of these
    museums,but can I book 10%discount tickets online, limited for a certain time but
    also providing fast track entry ?
    Thanks and kind regards Holger

    • Dear Holger,
      Yes, you can buy tickets online with 10% discount and have a fast track entrance.
      For example you can buy the tickets for the Van Gogh Museum with the link I provided in an earlier answer (see below).

      So you have to go to the website of the Van Gogh Museum to buy theses tickets and select the special 10% discount Holland Pass tickets.
      Jan – AmsterdamTourist.info

  25. Dear Jan, many thanks for your reply. So far I understand Gold Ticket provides free access, fast track entry and not limited for a certain time.
    What about the 10% discount tickets- can I book them online (10%discount) for a certain time but also providing fast track entry ?
    I hope I dont bother you with my detailed questions.
    Thanks and best regards
    Holger

  26. 1 st. Question:We are a group of 9 persons from Berlin planning a 4 day tour , 3 of us have a incapacity (variety form 50% to 90%).Do this people get reduced tickets for museums etc. And if so, can I book the reduced tickets online in advance?
    2nd question: Do I have with the Holland Amsterdam Pass 5 free access for the Van Gogh museum and the Rijksmuseum as well ?
    Best regards
    Dr. Holger Kuckuck

    • Dear Holger Kuckuck,

      As of my knowledge most of the museums don’t have any reduction for people with a disability. The only reduction for museums I know are for students or for older people (+65 years).
      With the Amsterdam Holland Pass Medium (5 tickets) you have free access to both Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. You can buy the Amsterdam Holland Pass on this page:
      http://www.amsterdamtourist.info/tips/amsterdamdiscount-cards/amsterdam-holland-pass/

      Jan – AmsterdamTourist.info

      • Thanks for this information. So I have two question more: Do older visitors (65+) get reduced prices for the Holland Amsterdam Pass or the City Card ?
        Includes the small Amsterdam Pass free entrance for the Rijkes Museum and the Van Gogh Museum ?
        Best regards
        Holger Kuckuck

        • Dear Holger,

          I’m sorry to inform you that older Visitors (65+) don’t get any discount for the Amsterdam Holland Pass or the iamsterdam City Card.
          With the Amsterdam Holland Pass SMALL you get 1 free entrance ticket (GOLD) for either the Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh Museum, not noth.
          But you can use one ticket for the Rijksmuseum and you can still use the discount card included with the Amsterdam Holland Pass for a 10% disocunt at the Van Gogh Museum.
