Hey ya:-) I just came back to Israel from my 2 1/2 week trip to my motherland Holland. It was great being home again!!!
We experienced so many things which we will share with you. One of the highlights was the fairly new “THIS IS HOLLAND – the ultimate flight experience”. It’s basically a huge flight simulator which takes 20 people seated in two big chairlifts “soaring” through the Dutch skies while looking down on interesting and famous places and sites. The high quality screen is all around you while you are hanging in midair, inside a big sphere. Include movement, water drops and scent, and you are granted a physical experience as if it were an actual flight. It is an amazing experience, a relatively new highlight in Amsterdam and we
whole-heartedly recommend it!

Please note: the minimum body length requirement is 1.20 mtrs., the experience is well accessible for people with disabilities
At Amsterdam Central Station, exit the station and follow the signs to the IJ side (IJ-zijde). Walk to the free ferry (the sign next to the two ferries reads: “Buiksloterweg“), which will take you across the river IJ within a few minutes. After you get off the ferry on the other side of the river, turn left, cross a bridge and walk (two minutes only!) to THIS IS HOLLAND. It’s a round shaped, grey metallic building, you can’t miss it.
After the experience, you can take the ferry back towards Central Station, enter the station and walk through it towards the exit on the other side of the station, which leads you in the direction of the Dam Square and other popular sites in the city centre.
We just KNOW you’ll enjoy THIS IS HOLLAND!
