A’dam Lookout

Overhoeksplein 5, Amsterdam, 1031 KS

The Basics

Inside A'dam Tower, A’Dam Lookout’s sky deck and indoor panorama deck allow visitors to view the city from all angles no matter the weather conditions, and state-of-the-art interactive exhibits give further insight into Amsterdam's history and culture. Inside the tower is a gift shop, rooftop bar and club (on the 21st floor), and a 20th-floor restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows. Although the tower may look new, it first opened in 1971 in the former Royal Dutch Shell oil company’s offices before undergoing a complete refurbishment in 2016.

Advance packages purchased online include fast-track access, which means no waiting in line. You can save money by booking a combination tour that includes a visit to A’dam Lookout along with another sightseeing activity, such as a canal cruise, excursion to Keukenhof Gardens, or visit to the windmills of Zaanse Schans.

Over the Edge

If you are not afraid of heights, check out Over the Edge, a large swing that sends thrill-seekers careening back and forth over the top edge (thankfully, while strapped into a full-body harness). The swing requires a separate ticket at an additional cost.
