The Amsterdams Marionetten Theater (AMT) is known all over the world and continues the ancient tradition of the classic puppet show.

It’s one of Amsterdam’s most closely-guarded secrets


Located in a pleasant district of the city centre and off the beaten tourist track, the AMT puts on shows that are one of a kind (for adults and children over the age of 7) involving carved puppets wearing richly-decorated costumes. Quite unlike Punch & Judy, the AMT derives its inspiration from the classical operas, such as Mozart’s Magic Flute. Shows take place there once a week, and they’re always sell-outs, as the theatre, draped with red velvet, can only hold 75 people!

Passionate performers


The curtain rises and you’re instantly captivated. The puppets are amazingly realistic and you’d almost forget that there are invisible hands there bringing them to life. The décor, lighting and soundtrack (made specially for every production) are amazingly high quality. Everything about the AMT exudes passion! It’s real poetry and you come out of the theatre with your eyes sparkling !
You are strongly advised to book in advance. Performance dates are shown on the theatre’s website. English-language programmes are available at the theatre.
Tickets: €16 (adults) and €7.50 (children under 15).
