Amsterdam: Entry Ticket to Muiderslot Castle

Visit Castle Muiderslot and experience one of the oldest and best-preserved castles in the Netherlands. Marvel at the over 700 years location surrounded by water and gardens. The castle arose in 1285 and there are many stories to tell about its long and turbulent history. See the Muiderslot castle that has been a national museum since 1878. Before then, the castle was completely dilapidated and even came close to being demolished.

See the collection that revolves primarily around two historical eras: the Middle Ages and the 17th century. Discover what life was like in these times when also the poet and writer P.C.

It is the perfect tool for having no head aches during the trip. We had 2 cards of 72h each and we visited only 3 museums, Rijkmuseum, Van Gogh and Amsterdam Museum, because it takes time to visit properly and these are the most important to learn also about Nederlands and Amsterdam history, i wanted to visit Rembrand but didn’t. No time. Anna Frank’ s house museum is not included, it should be…The card is very useful for the transport, we traveled a lot from a point to another. The city public transport infrastructure is the best i’ve seen. We use it for a canal cruise with Stromma. And also at parking at P&R Arena to prove we let the car 3 days for visiting the city. Otherwise, 90 euro instead of 3 So, useful, the time slot for museums was easy to reserve. Very good tool

Excellent card for the many functions it offers. You can access many points of interest, and all means of public transport (no trains) to visit and get to know the city thoroughly

Everything worked very well. It was very easy to pick up the tickets with the voucher from the automatic machines in the airport's baggage collection area.

The card was very worthwhile for us - but good organization is necessary for this, as a timeslot booked in advance is necessary for many activities.

Travel easily with any public transport. Highly recommended, as the infrastructure is great.
