About the ObservatoryThe stunning iconic building of A'DAM's Observatory is right next to the EYE Film Institute and across from the Central Station. It was once an abandoned high-rise building that became one of Amsterdam's leading tourist centers. You can reach it by ferry. This is Amsterdam's most impressive observation post. From here you can see the historic center of the city, the harbor, the scenery and the canals. Beyond that, you can see an interactive exhibition here to complete the experience. The exhibition deals with the history and culture of Amsterdam.
However, you must not skip the most exciting attraction in the observatory. The highest swing in Europe is right here. It is called "Over the Edge" and it opened to visitors recently, in 2016. A hundred meters above ground, with all of Amsterdam under your feet, you will not be able to relax from the adrenalin that will flow through your body. Enjoy!
