Where to start?
If you don’t know what to do in Amsterdam and you are too lazy to spend hours searching on the Internet, you can buy the “IAmsterdam” card and visit all the places you will be able to access with this card. From a single website, you can create an itinerary of the places you want to visit each day. Then you just have to buy the card according to the number of days you will stay in Amsterdam, and that’s it. Although this card is like having a VIP pass, you should know that some places like museums require you to set aside the date you will visit the museum if it is high season. If you don’t, even if you have the “IAmsterdam” card, you won’t be able to enter if the establishment is crowded.
