What To Expect

Amsterdam Icebar Xtracold:

Easily the coolest attraction in town, Amsterdam Icebar Xtracold is made completely from ice — with frozen furniture, walls and even drinking glasses. On arrival at your pre-booked time slot in the lounge, you’re greeted with a complimentary cocktail and provided a thermal poncho and mittens before you step into the frosty bar with a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius)!

Once inside, relax at leisure amid the cozy yet icy ambiance. Enjoy your choice of either two Smirnoff cocktails or two Heineken beers on the house. 

Amsterdam Canal Cruise

Before you make your way to the pier near Amsterdam Central Station for your cruise, make sure you book your timeslot at the local office located at Damrak 26. At the booked time, board the glass-topped sightseeing boat for your 1-hour sightseeing cruise. As you glide effortlessly through the city, you’ll see countless top Amsterdam attractions like the affluent Golden Bend (Gouden Bocht) neighborhood, the Anne Frank House and the Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht. Pass the pretty gabled houses that Amsterdam is so well known for, and cruise underneath the Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) while your audio guide informs you of interesting facts and stories. Cruises depart every 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the season.

The booking did not tell...
Susan_H, May 2023
The booking did not tell you that the canal boat was to sail miles away from the ice bar, this needs to made more clear. We managed to turn up for our ice bar on time thinking the canal cruise was in the same area. To be fair the canal cruise was honoured the following day just needs more clarity
No canal tour!!! Bad combination and no help
Tracy_B, Apr 2023
The ice bar was fine, but the information on how to achieve the tickets and a time for the canal tour were super confusing and we didn't use the canal portion of our tickets because it was too late to go find the ticket office and secure a seat on the canal tour. The two events together were not a convenient or viable option together. We would like a refund.
Ice bar good....bad communication form tour operator and no help when requested
Louise_B, Mar 2023
Ice bar was great but absolutely no instructions on where to go for the canal boat tour. We were sent from pillar to post by other boat companies so gave up as couldn't find it. disappointing
Confusing directions & timeslot
Lauren_K, Feb 2023
The ice bar was very fun, but quick, around 40 minutes in all. However, I was told over the phone to do the canal cruise first and ended up almost missing the time slot for the icebar. The time slot given on the ticket is for the ice bar and to do the canal cruise you must book a time slot yourself. This was not made clear even after I had to call for directions because they weren't included. Sadly, we did not get to do the cruise because it was booked solid once we finished the ice bar! The bar experience alone was not worth the price.
The Information were not...
Leonor_P, Feb 2023
The Information were not correct, it was really difficult to find the Informations. It was not clear.
Great stag do activity
Kerry_H, Feb 2023
Lovely canal tour, loved the fact we could book the canal tour for any day or time as we did the ice bar in the evening and canal tour day after. Staff on both tours were great
Derek_R, Jan 2023
We had booked the ice bar and cruise and we had asked the staff on where to get the cruise and nobody could tell us, We would have thought that with this package there would have been someone to take us to wherever the cruise started from.
Great Experience
James_W, Dec 2022
Great time at the ice bar. It's cold but worth the experience. The boat tour was quiet and laid back.
Excellent experience
Kyra_D, Dec 2022
It was a great experience thd ice bar was great, great atmosphere and the cruise was great way to see Amsterdam.
Icy and cool 😁
crystal_m, Nov 2022
Very enjoyable experience even though the ice part is smaller than expected still well worth a visit , the cabal Cruise was very enjoyable too. Good little package.
OK I suppose
Wayne_S, Sept 2022
Very small, thought it would be better - They also need better gloves Experience was good but very quick inside
Disappointing compared to the London Ice Bar
afrawillmore, Sept 2022
Quite fun but nowhere as good as the London Ice bar before it closed. Gloves grabbed off people leaving and puffer jackets with no hoods which didn’t do up mean those unprepared got very cold. Bar cramped and ice dirty, floor sticky. Staff good and drinks nice but didn’t stay long.
ElizabethLynn_M, Sept 2022
The ice bar was okay, you were rushed in and out and not really sure what was going on. We wanted to get the photographer to take our picture for a keep safe but we’re told to get out the way as they were filling up so no pictures. Also it was torrential rain so we did not go on the canal tour
Deborah_S, July 2022
We were told to be at the Ice Bar for 16.20. The bar was so small and the free drinks were pitiful. The ice glasses had a big lump in the middle so the amount you got was minimal. The shots were ok but again cheap stuff. The ice bar itself was a tiny little room with a metal floor. We expected something bigger. We then were told we had to make our way to the train station which was an hours walk to catch the canal boat for the second part of our experience. We had already walked down!!! The email wasn’t at all clear and so we didn’t know that we had to book a time in the canal boat either so we were so tired we went on that the next day. The canal cruise was lovely though.
Amsterdam in a few hours
Sebastian_B, July 2022
The bar is such a Unique experience, they staff is very welcoming. The boat was clean and has different languages for the guide tour, the staff at the boat operator are friendly
We were disappointed that...
Ruth_D, July 2022
We were disappointed that the beer tap wasn’t working, limiting our choice of drinks. The bar was smaller than I expected.
Great hour of fun 😄 must...
Mark_F, June 2022
Great hour of fun 😄 must do if visiting Amsterdam ! Wrap up and definitely wear the gloves as glasses are also ice !
The Icebar staff really...
Joanne_P, June 2022
The Icebar staff really make the experience! It’s the most fun you can have in sub-zero temperatures…similarly the commentator on the canal cruise was both informative and funny with personal anecdotes that made everyone laugh out loud.
The system allowed me to...
Lewis_J, May 2022
The system allowed me to book onto a booat trip which didnt exist, we turned up to the dock after our booking at the Ice Bar and the gentlemen said there were no more boats
It was nice experience but not worth the money
xsrsrp8r9z, May 2022
Boat ride was good and icebar experience was okayish but definitely not worth the price. Would rather just do the canal ride. If you like to drink then the ice bar might be worth.
