Upcoming: NAN GOLDING 'This Will Not End Well': Oct 7 - Jan 28, 2024 This is the first exhibition to explore the breadth of Nan Goldin’s work as a filmmaker. Her explorations of a human life through the lens of the camera are legendary. Goldin’s photos of herself and her friends are snapshots of intimacy and coupling, of the quotidian and wild parties, and the struggle between dependency and autonomy. Goldin documented the world of her bohemian friends with raw tenderness. MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ - Mar 16 - Jul 14, 2024 This exhibition represents the first major solo in the Netherlands of the internationally acclaimed artist Marina Abramović, the godmother of performance art. During her career, which began in Amsterdam and spans five decades, she propelled performance from its experimental beginnings into the mainstream. This retrospective covers her entire oeuvre - from her early works made in the 1970s to the groundbreaking works she made with her partner Ulay, up to and including her solo practice, which is still active today.

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 948 reviews

It was a total success to get the Amsterdam City Card, we paid €120 (2 people for 1 day) and it is activated the moment you use it for the first time and ends just 24 hours after the first use. We had free access to the metro, bus and tram; We also took a one-hour canal cruise with the company Stromma, we visited the Rijksmuseum, the Moco Museum, the NEMO Museum, This is Holland... If we had done those activities on our own, it would have been more expensive. An important thing to keep in mind is that in some places you have to book through their websites in advance, so as not to be left without a ticket.

I haven't been able to redeem my pass yet. Thanks to the strike in Germany I had to leave early. But the great thing about the pass is: if you haven't redeemed anything yet, the pass will last for another 2 years, which gives me the flexibility to go back to Amsterdam in peace in May and then be able to use the pass. I think it's a shame that you didn't have a direct overview of all the attractions that were included... you then found out about 2-3 clicks away.

City card pass definitely paid off. I visited a lot of places and museums that are included in the pass. We drove through the city on public transport without thinking whether our ticket had expired or not... We enjoyed every minute spent in Amsterdam thanks to the free offers we got included in the City pass card.

Great trip, city of great intellectual and environmental wealth. Very practical and easy to use card. On the other hand, you have to check the Amsterdam city card website for the museums included there. The Van Gohg museum, for example, is not included.

More economical travel thanks to the city card. Over 3 days I spent €60 less than if I had not had the card, given the visits, outings and public transport that I took
