From June 1 onwards, most of the terraces, bars and restaurants will open again.

However, there are strict conditions:

  • A maximum of 30 guests are allowed, excluding staff and independent of the size of the establishment.
  • Everybody should keep 1.5 metres (5 feet) distance from each other.
  • All guests must have a seat at a table or bar.
  • Reservations must be made in advance.
  • During the reservation process a check will take place to make sure that no corona-related complaints exist.

Party bars and discotheques remain closed until further notice.

The majority of hotels in Amsterdam are also open again. Tourists are seduced with (sometimes substantial) discounts and special arrangements.

Museums and attractions are also allowed to reopen from June 1. Tickets can be reserved online. The museums are only selling a very limited number of tickets for each start time.

Due to Covid-19 all festivals and events have been canceled until September 1.
