Getting there

The LOOKOUT is the crown on the A’DAM Tower Amsterdam, the iconic building right next to the Eye Film Institute and opposite the Central Station. You can reach the LOOKOUT by taking the free ferry (to Buiksloterweg) from behind the station, followed by a short walk along the IJ. If you are travelling by bicycle, you can park this on the Central Station’s side. There are plenty of bicycle spaces here.
