Traveling from Brussels airport to Amsterdam

by rickd11

When traveling from the Brussels airport can you take a train the entire way. From my research online, it looks like you have to take a bus to the central station and from there via the train to Amsterdam,

There are frequent airport trains to Brussels with a stop at the central station. There is, I think, no train directly from the Brussels airport to Amsterdam.

Are you actually referring to Brussels airport or Charleroi airport?
Just checking since you need more info if it is Charleroi.

What bus? There is no bus from Brussels Airport (as opposed to CHARLEROI Airport, known to Ryanair as Brussels South but its code is still CRL) to Gare centrale! You can get to Gare centrale by taking the airport bus to Schuman and then the metro from there, but I don't know why you would.
You can take a TRAIN from BRU to Bruxelles-Nord, Central or Midi and change at one of those, having checked which one the Amsterdam train you want stops at. If it's Thalys (but then you would have to have a reservation), it only leaves from Midi, but if it's InterCity, which you don't need to buy in advance, it stops at Midi and, I think, Central.
You can check times on any European railway timetable site e.g. http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en, selecting Bruxelles-Nat.-Aéroport as departure station and Amsterdam-Schiphol as arrival station. It will show you where you have to change.

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Albert Heijn: munchy central

by Poznick

This prominent grocery store chain is the Netherlands' greatest contribution to the world. I suggest smoking a "J" and heading to the nearest one for a stroll down the spotless aisles stocked with the most tantalizing goodies you could hope for, even ones that are healthy for you! I recommend the carrot balls; brilliantly orange and highly mouth-poppable! Also try the wonderful juice blends. Strawberry-banana is my number one squeeze.

Crazy vs. Reality: Amsterdam

by cammueller

My favorite thing about Amsterdam is its diversity in activites from museums, coffee shops, bars, and awesome canals and districts for walking. Fondest memory of Amsterdam would have to be walking the canals, seeing the beautiful architecture and the emotional sight of the Anne Frank House.

This is almost impossible to...

by Ron0549

This is almost impossible to answer for I loved all the places I visited, and I visited a lot of them during my stay. However, one that really sticks in my mind was a side trip to Harlem. This walkable, Capitoal City has one of the cutest history museums I have ever visited. Located near the city center, it is a multimedia event with film, slides, lighted dioramas, and even toy models showing the culture and wonderness history of the Netherlands and Harlem it self. A thirty minute train from Amsterdam to Harlem and a very short bus ride into the city is a must for all visitors to the Netherlands. If you have never been to an authentic brown resturants you will be in for a treat of not only plentiful of great food and choices, but the locals are as engaging and friendly when you join in their local customs. Just off the Liedstrat off the northern end of Liedsplien you will find a one of these resturants that have the best steaks, ribs and drinks. The bartenders are extremly funny, helpful and cordial to the tourists that accidently enter. You hang your coat on a wooden peg and if your lucky you will find a seat at the bar. Order a drink and ask whats good for dinner and they will talk you into a great steak dinner with a big baked potato, salad and bread. It's worth the USD $25.00 price (not including the drinks)!

History 2 - Canal houses for storing goods

by Pavlik_NL

Canal houses that you see everywhere in Amsterdam, were no more then storage houses. In medieval times this town was the most important harbour for the Netherlands, yes even one of the most important ones in Europe. The canal houses higher floors were storage rooms, which is still recognised on the door-like and high windows. Another prove of the storage function is the hook on top of each house. A bar is sticking out at the top and in it is a “katrol” (a steel ring, through which a roop was running up and down). This way the goods could be lifted to the right place, as the staircases in crowded Amsterdam were deliberately built very small and winding, therefore not suitable to be used as way of transport up. It was also not wished for to let the goods (and men) pass through the private quarters of the trader that was mostly located on the first floor(s). Below ground (the souterain) was for servants (sometimes a little entrance door for them in the stairs). Now-a-days the “katrol” is still used. How else would one get large furniture pieces, like cupboards, closets, couches and whole piano’s) inside the building.

Recycling

by CoAir13

I also noticed many recycling bins throughout the city for paper and glass. What a fantastic idea. Why don't more cities do this? I also wonder if people actually use them for glass and paper rather than just garbage......
