  • With the Amsterdam Pass we took the visit to the Ajax Stadium, historic team, all very good organized, and the fabulous stadium, I was impressed, it is noticeable is recently built and has all the luxuries, we ate at a stadium restaurant, which was Pretty good. In the tour all the main tours, indoor rooms full of photos of ex-players, the pitch, benches and grandstand stands, changing rooms, press room, and Trophy Museum, finishing in the store.

  • Excellent place to go to kill a few hours. The stadium is fantastic as is the stadium museum. You could lose an hour or so easily reading and looking at the glittering history of the Netherlands biggest club. The VR demonstration of the stadium different uses is brilliant. I had no idea that it could transform into a spectacular indoor venue and back to football all within a couple of days, impressive! I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a genuine interest in football history. Ajax is certainly one to visit and tick off the 'list'.
  • Home of the Ajax football club, this arena offers a intimate experience for watching football matches or any other event being hosted. Regardless of where you are sitting you have great views from all areas of the arena. Conveniently located a short walk from the metro station reaching the arena is very easy. The arena also offers tours which give you great you a unique perspective into the arena and you also get access to area's not normally open to the public during events.
