Gay Travel in Amsterdam Just Got Easier and Better!


This past August 2009, Mayor Job Cohen opened the Gay Tourist Information Center (GAYtic) at Spuistraat 44 in Amsterdam. An official tourist agency specializing in Amsterdam gay tourist information, GAYtic is the first and only such organisation in the world.

(The press release was buried in the huge stacks we recieve! OOOPS!  Sorry for the delay – but better late than never!)

GAYtic meets the needs of the many tourists seeking a one-stop-shop for information on Amsterdam’s gay hotels, bars, events, tours and more. Visitors can order a personalised GAYtic Information Kit on the GAYtic website as well as Amsterdam’s city discount pass, the I amsterdam Card.

The kit includes:
– the Amsterdam gay magazines Gay&Night and Gay News (bi-lingual in English and Dutch)
– the gay map of Amsterdam
– flyers and brochures for all Amsterdam parties and venues for the period of your stay
– a coupon-book with discount coupons adding up to more than 250 euro
– general tourist information
– a surprise gadget as a gift from us here at GAYtic
and a FREE freshly brewed coffee when you come by to pick up your kit!

Although open-minded Amsterdam is considered an ideal gay travel destination, some unfortunate instances of intolerance do occur from time to time. In cooperation with Amsterdam’s Roze in het Blauw (Pink in Blue) — a network that represents the interests of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people within and outside the police — GAYtic also supports gay travellers in need of support or help.
