With both an ADNIGHT ticket you get access to all participating agencies and programs. You will need to exchange your ticket for a wristband to get access.

How do I make the most of my time?

Putting together your program can be quite a puzzle. Keep in mind that there are several areas where agencies are close together, like De Schinkel, Houthavens, De Grachten and Oost. This allows you to visit more agencies in a short time and spend less time traveling. We found that visitors on average spend around 1 hour at every agency they visit, which gives you at least 5 agencies to check out! Keep in mind that parking a car can be time consuming. Most areas are easily accessible by public transport or just grab a bike.

For people coming from abroad:

Make sure you rent a bike to get around Amsterdam. This makes it a lot easier to visit multiple agencies in little time. You can get from one edge of the city to the other in about 30 minutes each way. If you come from outside the city by train, you can rent a bike called OV-fiets at the station (they’re only a couple of euro's per 24 hours).

Of course the city also has taxi’s and Ubers.
