As of Friday April 14, a web page has been published that gives an indication of the waiting time for Amsterdam attractions.
The 'Rijenradar' or 'Live Lines' (Queue/Waiting line radar) was introduced to give an indication of how long you have to wait to get into a particular attraction or museum in Amsterdam.
The page starts as a pilot, with 10 attractions participating, to start with. Amongst these are attractions with notoriously long waiting lines, such as the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Heineken Experience.
Most other attractions have no serious waiting lines to speak of.
Staff of the attraction make an estimate of the waiting time, at least every half hour, which is then published immediately on the Rijenradar web page.
The pilot will last 3 months. The idea is that the radar could hopefully help tourists plan their attraction visits better.
The website is available in Dutch and in English.
The Rijenradar is on this website.
