People visiting Amsterdam for the first time sometimes have trouble telling time, since we use the 24-hour clock. We’ll show you how it works.
And yes, you can also check the current date and time.
Public transport in Amsterdam requires the use of an OV-Chipkaart (OV-Chipcard) — a paper or plastic credit card-size ticket with en embedded memory chip designed to be read by ticket readers on board public transport vehicles.
For most tourists, day- or multiple day tickets are the best deal. They entitle you to unlimited travel through Amsterdam – day and night – by tram, bus and metro. Ferries across the river IJ are always free.
Update: 2018 prices + all buses and trams are now cash-free. Buy your Public Transport Day- or Multiple Day Passes online right here.
