Getting from Amsterdam airport to Amstel Bus Station

by hugg0029

My arrives in Amsterdam at 6:30 am on July 25th and I am planning on taking a Euroline bus from Amstel Station to Ghent, Belgium at 9:00am.

1) What is the best way to get from the airport to the bus station?

2) Is there enough time to do this? Does anyone know how early you need to be for a Euroline bus?

Thank You,
Ryan Huggett

Hi, if your plane arrives at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport you will have plenty of time to get to the Amstelstation by train. www.ns.nl
You are able to buy your ticket in a machine while you are waiting for your suitcase.
Just take a one way ticket 2nd klas Schiphol - Amsterdam Amstel

08:11 Schiphol 1-2 Hilversum Stoptrein (NS)
08:19 Amsterdam Zuid
08:21 Amsterdam RAI
08:25 Duivendrecht 1
08:30 Duivendrecht 5 Amsterdam Centraal Sprinter (NS)
08:34 Amsterdam Amstel 1

Why do you actually want to take the Eurolines bus to Gent? There is a train connection from Schiphol to Gent at least once an hour (always with transfer in Antwerpen). By train you can be in Gent by 11AM...

Because the bus is considerably cheaper

Re: Getting from Amsterdam airport to Amstel Bus Station

by K_V_B

The bus is actually not "considerably cheaper". On that route it's just a little bit cheaper and massively less convenient...

Yes, that baffled me too.
Euroline, travel time: 6 hours. Price: 30 euro (incl. admin costs and compulsory insurance).
Train, travel time: 3 hours. Price: 37.40 euro (with one stopover at Antwerp).

Maybe our poster had a great deal at Euroline.

You forgot to include the price for that train ticket from Schiphol to Amsterdam Amstel, which is 3,40, making the difference even smaller.
Ofcourse, the OP might indeed have a good deal with Eurolines, but good deals are also available for the trains.

Re: Getting from Amsterdam airport to Amstel Bus Station

by ATLC

Ah yes, of course! The OP has to go to Amsterdam first, to catch that bus!
Which is not the case if you take the train from Schiphol Airport directly to Gent.

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

The Canals

by Susancul

You know I thought Amsterdam was all about drugs and prostitution but I was shocked. It is one of the most beatiful and cleanest cities I have been to! The canal tour at night time was fantastic. We dined and cruised at the same time and it gave us a chance to try some authentic Amsterdam food! Excellent!! The trip around the city and the windmill. Fantastic!

Amsterdam Tip

by eitakorlando

The biggest surprise was all of the houseboats moored in the canals. What an interesting way to live in the middle of the city. I wonder what the rental on canal space is? If you want, you can take a canal trip -- there are tours. It is a romantic way to see that part of the city. However, it is a shame to look down only to see so much garbage floating in the water.

Amsterdam canals

by codrutz

The dutch word for canal is "gracht". Therefore, the name of the canals ends in "..gracht".

Singelgrachtl - The Singel, Amsterdam's innermost canal, the narrowest circle of the half-moons of canals. Its name means ring or belt and it marked the boundary of the medieval town. Before 17th century, the Singel was merely a ditch separating the town walls from the gardens and lawns of Amsterdam's immediate outskirts. This wide, windy canal was heavily urbanized as from the second half of the 17th century.

Herrengracht - The Gentlemen's Canal, like the other canals called the Keizergracht and the Prinsengracht, dates from 1612, when it was decided too dig a concentric series of canals surrounding the centre of the city. On the sides of the Herrengracht are the aristocratic dwellings of the richest families in Amsterdam who once favoured this part of the city. The richest merchants competed with another for the most beautiful or largest house. Over 400 houses on Herrengracht are considered national monuments. They are mainly banks or offices as their maintenance is too expensive for private ownership.

Keizergracht - The Emperor's Canal owes its name to the Maximilian I, ruler of the Holy Roman Empire. Keizergracht connects the Amstel to Brouwergracht. Its houses are not as impressive as those on the parallel Herrengracht, but still they keep the charm.

Prinsengracht - It is the most popular of Amsterdam's main canals and the outermost ring of its semicircumference. In fact, Princes Canal marks the outer boundary of the centre of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam Tip

by Slydevil

Finally, I would like to add that my trip to Amsterdam had a special 'flavour' due to a wonderful person I was lucky enough to get to know, firstly, by chance, at VT, and then, face to face in Holland. She opened the doors of her house to me and not satisfied with that, spent her 3 days off showing me not only the tourist spots but also those 'off the beaten path' places. Here is Edith, as the captain of the motor boat we rented in a hot sunny day in Breukelen. It was an unforgetable experience. I am very very grateful for that and, Edith, it is your turn now to come to Brazil.
