With an Amsterdam City passes you can enter many museum easily and quickly. A canal cruise, public transport tickets and discount to other attractions are usually included. Most cards also come with a handy map of Amsterdam, a magazine in English with up to date information about things to do in Amsterdam and surroundings and sometimes (I Amsterdam Card) even an app for your phone.
Though Amsterdam passes do not necessarily save you much money, most visitors are very positive about their Amsterdam card. It made their visit to Amsterdam stress free, because there was no need to buy tickets for trains, trams and the busy museums. They could skip those long waiting lines in front of the popular museums.
But which Amsterdam City Pass is best? There are four Amsterdam city passes available: the more ‘official’ but most expensive I Amsterdam City Card, the rather complex Amsterdam Holland Pass, and the simple Amsterdam City Pass and Amsterdam City Pass Plus (formerly Museum Card).
To make a decision, you need to know which museums you want to see. The Anne Frank House is never included in any passes. Also take into account that Amsterdam is not Paris or London. The amount of worthwhile museums and attractions is limited in Amsterdam.
