The Amsterdam Lookout is one of the city’s newest and best attractions. Opened in May 2016, the almost 100 metre high building has become a landmark in the city. The panoramic deck provides a spectacular 360 degree view of the city. There is both an indoor and outdoor deck, found on the 20th and 21st floors. On these decks you will find telescopes which you may use for free. From here you can see Amsterdam’s historic centre, its bustling port and its enormous network of canals.
Restaurant MOON is independent of LOOKOUT, you must book separately here. Restaurant Madam is part of LOOKOUT. For dinner and lunch there you can always book the best because it is often already full.
In addition, the Lookout is home to Madam, a fantastic revolving restaurant. This is one of the best places in the city to eat. After dinner head, Madam is also a cocktail bar/nightclub where you can look down on the city as it lights up at night.
