From Central station to Airport?

by leanneedwards

Have an overnight in Amsterdam near the central station and will be heading to the airport for a flight at 9:30 am next morning can I get a train directly from central station to the airport? and how early do I need to leave the central station?? Thanks in Advance!

Yes, trains go directly from Amsterdam Centraal to Schiphol.

You can find times, details and fares in English here;

http://www.ns.nl/reisplanner-v2/index.shtml?language=en

Journey is less than 15 minutes, trains are frequent.

You should be at the airport for at least 0730.

I'd catch one of the trains around 0630 (there are 3) or 0640.

Re: From Central station to Airport?

If you are flying outside Europe (?) then the airport page suggest you should be there three hours before departure;

http://www.schiphol.nl/Travellers/AtSchiphol/CheckinControl/Checkin.htm

I'd follow that advice, personally. There are trains to the airport 24/7.

During the night there is am hourly night train service departing at XX.45AM from track 7 or 8, arriving at the Schiphol Airport after a 15 minutes direct journey.

Regular train service starts at 5AM.

So, if you want to be at the safe side take the 6.11 AM direct train and have your breakfast at the Airport.

The only thing I would add to Leics recommendations (personal experience on one of my stays in Amsterdam), is that if you are there on a holiday, the train frequency can be much lower than on other days.

In my case there was a gap of 40 minutes between trains rather than the usual 15 or 20 minutes.

Amsterdam is one of my favorite places for eating, and I found a wonderful place this past September right on one of the canals called Spanjer En Van Twist----If I had to recommend one place to eat, it would be this place. Very special meals and a nice bar in the back...check out www.spanjerenvantwist.nl
or www.members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/4b0834/
Easy to get to from Central Station by tram or walking....

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

train/street cars

by bemikes

The city is quite beautiful. The canals and the buildings are something to see! The thing that is a bit overwhelming is the amount of drugs and people that are on them! It is amazing how many are walking around in a haze at one point in the evening. It is a calm city concidering. The red light district is a sad place to end up in. On a lighter note the food is amazing in the resteraunts. It is easy to get around. Make sure when you get on the train/street cars if you don't have a ticket you get in on the front so you can purchase a ticket on the way in the train. We got in on the back and tried to buy tickets on the way out. They were not pleased about that.They gave us a free ride but told us to ALWAYS get in in the front if you don't have tickets. Walking along the Canals at night, as the sun was setting. And I loved seeing the old wind mills on the highways. (autobahns) The old farm houses and the fields on the way from amsterdam to Maastrict was really cool.

Just go. Go now. Go back. Bring friends or not.

by LolaSanFrancisco

I love walking arround and getting lost. I like sitting in the park and smooking a joint and walking arround and getting lost some more. I like picking one bar and going ever night untel I become a regular. I like the liberal views, the Dutch people, and public transportation. I love everything about the damn place. I went to see "Spinal Tap" in dutch! Ha!

go and see the Vondelpark in...

by inger.

go and see the Vondelpark in the summertime, its filled with all sorts of people, lots to see, just sit on the grass somewhere in the sun and wait for the guy that comes around and sells cans of beer, very relaxing. or when you don't want to sit on the grass there is the filmmuseum; called Vertigo, where you can have something to eat or drink and in the evening they will show movies on a big screen outside on thursdaynight ( Vertigo )

In the middle of the parc is also 'het blauwe theehuis' (the blue teahouse) big terace, very popular place at the moment. (clublist only in Dutch) the atmosphere.... (picture is Vertigo, its borrowed from www.amsterdamhotspots.nl) amsterdam hotspots

Red Lights

by acemj

This might be one of the only pages on VT to hardly make mention of the Red Light District, but that doesn't mean I haven't been there. In fact, my hostel was located just on the edge of it. Personally, I think it's kind of pathetic to see what goes on there, but I'm not one to judge . . .
In fact, during the daytime, the area is actually pretty nice. There are still some women in windows eyeing you as you pass by, but you'll also see families and people dining in area restaurants. At night however, the place gets crowded with drug dealers and tourists and really just isn't my kind of scene.

Cyclists at the Munt

by Nemorino

The Muntplein is a large amorphous square where three major streets, and a number of minor ones, all come together.

It is infested with automobiles, but that doesn't stop cyclists, trams and pedestrians from using it as equal partners.

Of course wherever tram tracks and cyclists share street space you have to be careful not to get your front wheel caught in one of the tracks. This happened to me once, decades ago, while I was coming down off a bridge on a rainy day in Bern, Switzerland, and I had an embarrassing fall. (Luckily it was only embarrassing, and nothing worse.)

Additional photos: More cyclists at the Munt.
