The seaside resort of Zandvoort welcomes Formula 1 racing for the third year of its comeback stint. 2021 marked the first Dutch Grand Prix since 1985, with the event returning largely thanks to the huge popularity of local driver Max Verstappen.

Verstappen has delighted the partisan crowd in the last two years, winning both the 2021 and 2022 Dutch Grands Prix from pole position. He heads back to Zandvoort with a very healthy advantage in the title race, hunting his third consecutive championship win.

Zandvoort is located 40km west of capital city Amsterdam, meaning there is plenty to do away from the race track over the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix weekend. We’ve rounded up the best places to visit in the surrounding areas of Zandvoort, Haarlem and Amsterdam – as well as bars and restaurants to check out – in Off-Track Activities.

Full capacity at the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix

You can expect the grandstands and general admission areas to be filled with orange-cladded Max Verstappen supporters at the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix. Since the event’s return was confirmed in 2019, there has been a high level of interest in tickets. Tickets for the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix are mostly sold out, though limited numbers remain available in our ticket shop. We also recommend Official Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences; prices start from $529 USD for 2-day Pit Grandstand seats. You can also experience trackside hospitality in either the Champions Club or Paddock Club.

Over a million applications were made for the 100,000 tickets originally available for the event’s comeback in 2021. However, due to coronavirus-related restrictions in 2021, the Dutch Grand Prix ran at two-thirds capacity. With no such restrictions in 2022, weekend attendance grew from 195,000 to 305,000. It was the eighth best attended event of the 2022 Formula 1 season. A similar attendance figure is expected this year. 

How Much Will a Trip to the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix cost?

The Dutch Grand Prix is one of the more expensive European races to attend on the 2023 Formula 1 calendar. On average, tickets for the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix are the ninth most expensive from the 23 planned races on this year’s calendar. General Admission tickets are the seventh most expensive of the year. 

We estimate that the average fan will spend €1,140 on a trip to the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix, including grandstand seats, a three night stay in a hotel and daily spending money. Check out our Budget Planner for the lowdown on what you can expect to spend on a trip to the Dutch Grand Prix.

How to Get to Zandvoort for the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix

Dutch Grand Prix organisers are keen for fans to use sustainable methods to get to Zandvoort over the race weekend. Public transport options include Park and Ride, train and bus. There are plenty of options to travel to Zandvoort from nearby Haarlem and Amsterdam, while long-distance coach services are also available. It’s easy to walk to the circuit, if you’re staying in the town itself.

It should be noted that there is no access by car to Zandvoort over the race weekend. In addition, no taxis are able to come within a 90 minute walk of the circuit. Further information on travel options can be found in our travel guide and FAQs can be found on the official Dutch Grand Prix website.

Support Races & Trackside Entertainment at Zandvoort

Formula 1’s on track action will be supported by Formula 2 and Porsche Supercup at the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix. Both series will race twice over the Dutch Grand Prix weekend. An extra Porsche Supercup race has been added to the line-up due to the cancellation of the Imola round earlier in the season. It’s the penultimate round of the Porsche Supercup season, while Formula 2 will race twice more after the Zandvoort weekend.

There will also be a range of trackside entertainment at the Dutch Grand Prix. The Fanzone offering was expanded last year, with concerts taking place across the weekend. You can find more information on what to expect from your Zandvoort experience in our trackside guide

We also recommend downloading the official Dutch Grand Prix app, which contains the full event schedule, detailed circuit map and more information about attending the race.

  1. Hi, and thanks for the useful information.

    My gf and I are staying in Amsterdam while attending the event (Saturday/Sunday ticket). Do you know if we get a wristband on entrance when scanning the ticket, or is the paper-ticket valid on both days? Do not wanna end up being denied entrance on Sunday because we didn’t received a wristband or so.

  2. Thank you for the information!

    Do you happen to know where are the drivers staying during the race weekend?

  3. Toronto Eschrich

    Do the e-tickets need to be printed are would bringing a downloaded PDF be sufficient ? Also the app has a digital wallet where you can scan you ticket in but it doesn’t seem to be working for me. Do you know the procedure on that?

    1. It’s always a good idea to have both printed tickets and the tickets on your phone, in case of any issues with your phone. Sorry, I don’t know about adding your tickets to the app – I suggest contacting dutchgp.com about that

  4. Can I wear my petronas top. My boy is die hard Max but I’m Hamilton … but I want my boy to have a good time !

  5. If you have a weekend pass (Fri-Sun) does this provide access to all of the events on Super Friday? Such as the Drivers Q&A?
