March 12, 2022

Current coronavirus rules related to coffeeshops

As of the 25th of February 2022, coffeeshops are allowed to open again fully across the country. There are no additional rules or restrictions on opening times, or number of people allowed in the coffeeshop. It is also no longer required to show proof of vaccination, or wear a mask inside.

To clarify:

  • Coffeeshops in Amsterdam and the Netherlands are allowed to be open as normal. Coffeeshops are allowed to be open between 6am and 1am each day.
  • There is no need to show a QR code or proof of vaccination to enter, or sit inside a coffeeshop in The Netherlands. You can smoke there as you like, the same for smoke-friendly bars.
  • You do not need to wear a mask inside a coffeeshop or bar. You only need to wear a mask on planes and public transport.

Are tourists allowed in Amsterdam coffeeshops?

Yes, tourists are allowed to visit Amsterdam coffeeshops. There have been discussions for years about tourists being banned, and while the mayor has put forward a proposal, this would still need to be agreed upon. In the unlikely event that this goes through, this wouldn't restrict other cities from allowing tourists into their coffeeshops.
