Lost and found

Are you in Amsterdam and have you lost your passport, wallet or other items? Or maybe you have found somebody else's lost belongings? The Lost and Found office in central Amsterdam should be your first stop.

I lost something in Amsterdam

If you’ve lost something in Amsterdam or Diemen, you can:

  • visit the Lost and Found Office at Leidseplein (Korte Leidsedwarsstraat 52), Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 16.00.
  • go to the website and send an email or fill out the form.
  • call +31 20 251 0222, Monday to Friday from 12.00 to 16.00.

Keep in mind that it usually takes three business days for an object to be registered at the Lost and Found Office.

I lost my keys or umbrella

  • For lost keys and umbrellas, do not call or email the Lost and Found Office. Please drop by the office at Korte Leidsedwartsstraat 52. Lost keys are kept for ten weeks.

I lost my wallet, passport or bicycle

  • If you lose your bank card, report this immediately to your bank.
  • If you lose your passport, identity card, drivers licence or foreigner’s identity document, you must report this at your Municipal Office.
  • Found bicycles are taken to the Bicycle Depot (web page in Dutch) at Bornhout 8, 1046 BE.

My wallet, ID or bike was stolen

My item was found. How do I collect it?

If your object is found, you can collect it at the Lost and Found Office on weekdays. You must first be able to describe the lost object. If you have a picture, send it to us or bring it over. If an object has been found that matches your description and you recognise it as your property, you can reclaim it if you show a valid identity document.

Found something?

Take it to the Lost and Found Office or to the police. You can also report what you’ve found online.
