1. Canal Cruise

You haven't been to Amsterdam if you haven't taken a canal cruise! The city boasts over one hundred kilometers of canals, adorned with gorgeous architecture, bridges and islands, and a very interesting history. You can't miss the opportunity to see the city's top landmarks, including the Golden Bend, the Royal Palace and the Skinny Bridge, and take pictures to prove your friends that you've been good and seen more than the Red Light District. Regular cost of a canal cruise is €15.00, and it's free with the I Amsterdam museum card.

2. Artis Royal Zoo

Despite what you might think, not all zoos are the same, and the Amsterdam's Artis Royal Zoo is among the best ones, albeit not the biggest. Located in the heart of Amsterdam in a beautiful park, the zoo could be easily overlooked. However, if you have kids - a visit to the zoo is a must. It has all the kids' favorite animals including giraffes, lions, monkeys, crocodiles, and the animals look happy and well taken care of. Don't forget to also visit the Butterfly Pavilion with thousands of butterflies, the Aquarium with exotic fish, and the Planetarium with fascinating movies about space. Considering the entrance to Artis Royal Zoo costs 16,50 for kids and 19.95 for adults, you will save a lot with your I Amsterdam museum card.
