Current travel situation

Due to government measures, almost all sights and attractions in Amsterdam are currently closed. All social gatherings are banned until June, 2020. Meeting in groups of more than two people is prohibited. People violating this rule may be fined. Air travel from several (high risk) countries has stopped. For the latest information about flights to Amsterdam, please check Schiphol.nl. Public transport is still running, but there may be schedule changes.

Closures & cancellations 

Hotels remain open for overnight stays, but may only serve food to their own guests. All cafés and restaurants are closed. As of now, it is still possible to pick up food or have it delivered in Amsterdam.

All the museums and larger sights, such as the Van Gogh Museum, Keukenhof, Rijksmuseum, Artis and Anne Frank House are currently closed. Theaters and other entertainment venues have cancelled their programme. Restaurants, bars, sport facilities and schools are closed. The Visitor Information Centres at Central Station and Schiphol are also closed. At the moment, supermarkets and drug stores are still accessible but extra safety measures may apply. 

As a precaution, a number of major events have been canceled or postponed, including King's Day, Grand Prix Zandvoort, EURO 2020 and Eurovision Song Contest.

What to do with health complaints?

  • Stay at home.

  • Limit contact with others.

If you have a fever with respiratory symptoms, including coughing and shortness of breath:

  • Contact the reception desk or the host of your stay.

  • Contact the Dutch health authorities on 0800-1351. (This number cannot be reached from abroad, but can be reached within the Netherlands even if you have a non-Dutch provider. You will hear a Dutch message first, but an English message follows directly after.)
