About us

After the Eiffel Tower, Berlin Fernsehturm and the London Eye, Amsterdam also has its observation deck for unparalleled views: A’DAM LOOKOUT. With 360-degree views of Amsterdam, you’ll see the city’s historical centre, its pulsating port, the unique Dutch polder landscape and the famous canals which belong to the UNESCO World Heritage list. Complementing the experience is a state-of-the-art interactive exhibition about Amsterdam’s history and culture.

LOOKOUT also has an extra adrenaline rush in store for the daredevils among us: Europe’s highest swing ‘Over The Edge’ on the rooftop and the unique Amsterdam VR Ride, a virtual reality rollercoaster ride through the city.

You will find LOOKOUT on the top floor of the iconic A’DAM Tower along the Northern IJ river banks, right next to the Eye Film Museum and opposite Central Station.
