Discounted Admission to Attractions

If you are planning to visit both museums and attractions perhaps the Amsterdam Holland Pass is a better (and cheaper) way to explore the Amsterdam Highlights.

Daytrips to Haarlem and the Zaanse Schans
The I amsterdam City Card offers free entry to 2 museums in Haarlem, 9 attractions in the ‘Zaanse Schans’ and 4 attractions in the small vilages Enkhuizen, Volendam & Marken.
Haarlem is a nearby town with beautiful historical churches, a cathedral, interesting museums and the famous Haarlem’s ‘hofjes’ (courtyards).
Some think that the ‘Zaanse Schans’ is an open-air museum with the traditional Dutch houses, wooden shoe workshops, cheese farm, windmills and more. But it still is a town actually.
Enkhuizen, Volendam & Marken are small and old old fisherman’s villages with lively harbours, terraces, cosy eateries and Dutch herring carts. And with a bit of luck you’ll bump into a resident wearing the traditional costume.
