Behind the Amsterdam Central Station and beside the spaceship-resembling EYE Film Institute, there rests a 22 story building named Amsterdam Tower. The structure, that is lovingly called A’dam Toren, is home to a rooftop observation deck dubbed ‘A’dam Lookout’ that lets tourist get unequalled panoramic views of the most populous place of the Kingdom of the Netherlands – Amsterdam.
Tower of many talents, A’dam Toren, offers unlimited memory making moments to its visitors. It gives a 360-degree view of the capital that includes its historical centre, its pulsating port, the unique Dutch polder landscape and much more. Besides, it also hosts several cool bars and restaurants, and a bunch of pioneering music companies like ID&T, MassiveMusic and Gibson. Visitors can also view Amsterdam in whole new light, while dinning at the revolving restaurant – Moon.
A’dam Toren looks brand new, but this iconic landmark’s history actually lays in 1971, when it was owned by the oil company -Royal Dutch Shell. Subsequent to a multi-million euro refit, the tower was born in early 2016 as one of most visited tourist attractions in Amsterdam.
Complementing the name given to it, A’dam Toren is all about the view from almost the sky. It is also home to Europe’s highest swing—Over the Edge. It is a 100-metre-high swing, where people swing to and fro over the edge of A’dam Toren with the capital underneath their feet. Be there to see the sun disappear behind the city. Over the Edge is open every day from 11:00 am.
The creators of A’dam Lookout have also kept in mind what perks should be given to the little guests visiting the place. There is a special section for children where they can enjoy interactive games, while exploring the miniature model of the city.
A’dam Toren has the capability of striking the right chord with everyone who visits. Visitors will get the chance to experience extraordinary sensory sights, breathtaking sceneries, groundbreaking technologies, delicate flavours and subtle scents of fresh air. In short, all the good reasons are backing A’dam Lookout, which is an all-weather tourist hotspot.
