GVB Scavenger Hunt: Discover Amsterdam using public transport

Everyone who likes to have fun discovering Amsterdam whilst using public transport can now enjoy the GVB Scavenger Hunt. There are sixteen GVBeestjes (beastie) stickers hidden at public transport stops in unique places throughout Amsterdam. Find at least six (6) GVBeasties and make a selfie to prove it. Also answer the question at the unique spot. By playing the game, you will also receive vouchers for fun discounts in the city. 

Select your favorite category or create a combo

There is something fun to experience in the vicinity of each GVBeestje. There are four categories: Art and culture, Food and drink, Kids, and History. Select the beasties you want to search for. You do not need to go through each category in order. You can combine these if you like, but you do have to find six beasties. 

You've found 6 GVBeasties. What's next?

Have you taken six of more selfies and answered the associated questions? Go to GVB Service & Tickets at Central Station and let us check them. If you did everything correctly, you'll win a fun prize.
