The Basics

Visitors are guided through two introductory stages before entering the flight simulator, which uses cinematic visuals, sounds, smells, and wind, to create the illusion of free flight. Book your ticket in advance to guarantee entry at a time that suits you, or take advantage of package deals that combine THIS IS HOLLAND with other integral Amsterdam experiences—such as a canal cruise or the A’DAM Lookout—for a discounted price.

An Afternoon in Overhoeks

With such a high concentration of attractions, it’s easy to spend an afternoon just exploring the Overhoeks area. You can follow up your flight experience with a ride on Europe’s highest swing at the A’DAM Lookout and take time to browse the EYE Film Institute’s exhibitions, before unwinding with a drink in one of the A’DAM Toren trendy venues. Alternatively, you can immerse yourself in Amsterdam’s creative scene at the Tolhuistuin culture hub.
