  • This has been the first football stadium I have visited. I was not sure before going on the tour if I would enjoy it, i was very wrong! It was fantastic, our tour guide was friendly and helpful...  more »
  • Parked here and took the Metro and Tram to downtown Amsterdam. Purchased parking and metro tickets from a machine in the parking complex prior to using the public transport. Ok so far. On the way.....  more »

  • Here for Holland v England friendly in March 2018, cracking stadium, stewards friendly-ish until full time when it became a bit tense in trying to exit although the local police didn't exactly help. Creates a great atmosphere. Was back in Amsterdam a few months later so did the stadium tour, which is excellent.
  • Even as a non-football fan, this was interesting (and free to visit with an iamsterdam card, including the metro from the city centre). Tour included dressing rooms for home and away team (very different!), taking the walk through the tunnel onto the pitch, sitting in the stands and some virtual reality. Guides were very amusing and enthusiastic. Ends with the shop, of course.
