Ocean's Twelve filming locations in Amsterdam

Where did they film Ocean's Twelve in Amsterdam?

In Ocean's Twelve, Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) locates all eleven members of Danny Ocean's gang, demanding they return the $150 million they stole from his casinos plus interest. To win back the money, Danny Ocean (George Clooney), Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) and Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon) go to Amsterdam to steal an important certificate.

Ocean's Twelve is full of stunning shots of Amsterdam. All the places you see are located in the proximity of each other, which means you can easily trace the steps of your favorite characters.

I made an itinerary for you that will help you see the filming locations of Ocean's Twelve, which are all famous places in Amsterdam.


Start your tour of the Ocean's Twelve filming locations in Kalverstraat. This is a busy shopping street in Amsterdam.


When you walk along Kalverstraat, you turn into Heiligeweg which is another shopping street. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon walk through Kalverstraat and Heiligeweg while going to their meeting in coffee shop De Dampkring.

Coffee shop De Dampkring

Walking through Heiligeweg, you'll see Handboogstraat on your right. At number 29 sits the coffee shop De Dampkring. You'll recognize it from the wooden front and blue signpost.

The characters of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Robbie Coltrane meet at this coffee shop to discuss business. They end up making a fool out of Mat Damon.

If you're a cat lover, you should definitely go inside because De Dampkring has a resident cat.


Go back to Heiligeweg. By following this street, you'll eventually arrive on Koningsplein.

The 'Golden Bend' of the Herengracht

If you walk a little further still, you'll arrive at Herengracht. You'll recognize several shots of Ocean's Twelve near the so-called “golden bend” of Herengracht.

Pulitzer Hotel

Pass Keizersgracht to arrive at Prinsengracht. Alongside this canal, at number 323, sits the huge Pulitzer Hotel. This is where the main characters stay during their trip to Amsterdam and where several key scenes take place.

You will not recognize the main entrance, though. This is because they filmed it at the back of the hotel. Though it states “Pulitzer Hotel” above the door, the main characters actually enter through the door of restaurant Jansz.

Did you know that you can book the Ocean's Twelve suite? What better way to end your day than to spend the night in the same hotel as your favorite characters.
