I was quite excited going into this attraction some time ago, but the disappointment of the whole experience made me feel so ripped off. The Ice bar was like a few containers sealed together and the items of ice were quite ridiculous. After putting big...More

DONT GO! Huge waste or time and money. The drinks are mixed and in an ice cup that holds less than a shot glass. The walk in freezer (not a bar) is small, cramped and you have no where to move. Your not allowed to...More

We got our tickets combined with a canal boat tour. DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE!! it's really not worth that much cash. It was still expensive with our discount! Yes, you get a free drink, but it's sooooo small it doesn't count! The experience itself...More

Even though we only paid 15E for a ticket at the ticket agents instead of the 20E to walk in at the door, it still wasn't worth it, i would say 5E is the only price i would pay. You wait around for everyone else...More

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

In the outside bar you can buy extra drinks & stay as long as you like, in the ice bar itself, it was freezing & 5-10 minutes was plenty, but they change the group around every 15-20 minutes
