Amsterdam ArenA, Amsterdam

4.0
Home to Dutch soccer's Ajax and host to a multitude of other sports and music events, Amsterdam ArenA also claims the title of the largest stadium in the Netherlands. With a sports capacity of more than 53,000 people and retractable roof, the stadium offers guided tours for a chance to see up-close the field, player facilities, and press stand and to learn more about the complex's daily workings. Tours are not available on match days; be sure to check the calendar of events to see if you can catch a soccer game or concert during your visit instead. You can easily access the stadium via rail from Amsterdam, Utrecht, and the rest of the Dutch train network.

  • The tour of the arena was fantastic. But somehow, the kids were a little dissapointed in the end. Reason? They could not see the turf as the field was being converted into a stage for a heavy metal sh...  more »
  • Most beautiful football stadium of Netherlands. It is time to finally get the Johan Cruijff Arena out of it. Is currently being grown considerably. Bigger, wider, more impressive!

  • Greatest stadium of the Netherlands, the roof can even be closed when it rains. Had a great time here watching an Ajax game in summer 2016. Seating is pretty good and comfortable. Food & drinks is not ideally located (at least where we were sitting) and quite pricey. Recommend the ArenA for any soccer games (Ajax or Dutch national team). One more thing: Don't park your car directly at the ArenA, getting out after any event (soccer match, concert etc.) is a nightmare. I'd suggest to park a little further and walk.
  • Had a really good time at Amsterdam music festival here. Expensive drinks but that was yo be expected. Mostly water was expensive. Beer was decent priced. The layout was good and easy to navigate. Staff was friendly and helpful. The lockers were really helpful. Overall, extremely fun!
  • No smoking allowed, even when the roof is open. Also a lot of soccer games there are no alcoholic beverages being served. Seats are ok. Ambiance in big matches is great. Not the best for concerts, but not bad either.
  • Nice place. Lots of stores to visit and great movie theatre. It's somewhat dirty. Some trash scattered. I think this is normal for the many concerts and festive events that are going on there.
  • Awesome place, places to eat, the pizza place nearby is really good. Stores and Cinemas. Just great place
