Giant swing on the rooftop

This attraction is so popular, that even though it is open 10 am – 10 pm every day, it is pretty crowded. Think about it, sitting on a giant swing, enjoying a magnificent view of Amsterdam!

We recommend to call or email if you want to know the hours less crowded. The building is wheelchair accessible. Accessible toilets are on the first floor and the 20th floor.

Experience Elevator

The main entrance is difficult to use when you are on your own, friendly staff is there to assist. In the Lookout you go up in a special Experience Elevator.

If you have problems with lights and sounds, staff will take you to the top in a regular elevator.

Enjoy the view

There is no need to make reservations ahead. Once on the top of the building, you can enjoy a magnificent view. For the ones who dare to be on a swing on a 20 story building, we advise the following:

The transfer from the platform to the swing is 3 meters, and has to be made independently. If you are able to walk a few steps and can transfer on your own, or with help (carer, family, friends), you can use the swing.
If not, the staff cannot be responsible and we strongly advise not to use the swing and enjoy the view instead.

Assistance dogs are welcome

You can bring your assistance dog. In the Amsterdam Lookout tower, you can enjoy a drink or a sandwich in the restaurant “m’Adam” on the 19th floor.

Take a ferry

A free shuttle ferry from outside Central Station Amsterdam takes you across the IJ (the crossing takes four minutes). From there it’s a less than a five minute roll to THIS IS HOLLAND.

Entrance and toilet

The door at the entrance is not easy to open yourself, it is best to take a friend along. For all wheelchair users who are able to make an independent transfer to the seat in the Flight Experience, we totally recommend this great attraction.

Flight Experience

This is absolutely one of the best attractions to visit in the Netherlands. Especially if you don’t have much time. It gives a great overview of the national history and most beautiful and important places.

If you are not able to make a transfer, the only option is to be carried into it. Staff of THIS IS HOLLAND is not certified to do so, however your company is allowed to help you transfer at your own risk.

Dutch history and highlights

THIS IS HOLLAND tells you the story, the highlights and unique Dutch culture of this small country that ‘conquered’ the water, in a very engaging and spectacular way.

There are three rooms. In the first two every one can sit and watch or listen to a short film about Holland or the Netherlands.

The final room is the Flight Experience. Anyone who can make a transfer can enjoy this ‘all senses’ experience. Very high quality presentation of digital video and movie experience all in one.
