I have a few questions.
1. How do I reach Oranjebaan from Denbosch in the most economical way (Time is not an issue)
2.How do I reach Amsterdam Central from Oranjebaan in the most economical way (Time is not an issue)
3. If I find trains in ns.nl, which is the nearest station to Oranjebaan if I take a train from 's-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch)
you can find all schedules of public transportation here:
You can choose which mode of transportation. However, the most logical is to take a train from Den Bosch to Amsterdam and bus/tram from there.
In any case, you'll find all the possibilities through the link above.
Now, 'Oranjebaan' is a fast-tram stop, rather than a street (there is no Oranjebaan street in Amsterdam). I'm pretty sure you mean Oranjebaan in Amstelveen (the fast-tram from Amsterdam stops there).
So in fact, your destination is not Amsterdam but Amstelveen.
The nearest train station is: Station Bijlmer ArenA (Amsterdam).
The total travel time would be 75-90 minutes and cost you 13.30 euro (one way).
In some countries or on some routes, buses are often the cheapest option. This is not the case in The Netherlands, 'long distance' bus is illogical since the train network is so dense.
I checked what COULD be the cheapest option, and that is all the way by bus. However, that is not cheaper at all (just about the same price as my previous advice) and will take you over 4 hours of travel time with a minimum of 4 up to 6 changes along the way.
1) I think your question is about how to go to the Willem van Oranjelaan at Den Bosch from the Main Train Station.
The most economical way is walking, about a good kilometer.
2) Go to the Den Bosch Main station and take the train 2nd class to Amsterdam Centraal.
3) The station called: Den Bosch
BTW in stead of walking to the station you could travel by the local Arriva bus #68 or #69 (but that still invloves 10 minutes walking).
Aha, PJ! Now I'm curious which one of us understood the question correctly.
It is a bit unclear, I must say.
Oranjebaan or Oranjestraat...
I might be wrong, but I'm curious too!
hi karprasad, have we given you the advice you needed? Since we were unsure what you meant by your question (which makes a difference to our advice!), please let us know.
I think after today he has a sense of distances and traveltimes for the Netherlands.

Wandering around the Red Light District, with the ladies in skimpy underwear standing behind glass fronted doors attempting to entice customers. Worth a walk around just for the sheer entertainment value!!
Renting a bicycle in Amsterdam
There are numerous places to rent bicycles in Amsterdam. I have only tried two of them so far, and was satisfied with both, but Holland Rent-a-Bike was the better of the two.
It is in the basement of a large building on the Damrak called Beurs van Berlage, and is a five minute walk from the central station. They not only rent bikes, but also buy, sell, repair and store them. (But they don't buy stolen bikes, as a big sign in the shop says.)
Their bikes are in very good condition and do not have signs on them, so you don't look like a tourist when you are riding around -- unless you wear a helmet like I do, which is a dead giveaway. They provided the helmet, by the way, and also a good lock, a loud bell and a basket.
You have to leave a deposit, but this can be in the form of a signed credit card slip which they give back to you when you return the bike.
Second photo: The building Beurs van Berlage was originally built from 1897 to 1903 as a stock exchange. It is now used for concerts and exhibitions, and of course Holland Rent-a-Bike is in the basement.
Third photo: I also rented once from Dam-Bike, Nes 26, which was slightly more expensive but convenient for me because it belongs to the Rho Hotel where I was staying. Dam-Bike is a small shop which seems to rent mainly by the hour or by the day.
Fourth photo: The bikes from Dam-Bike have big signs on them so you won't have trouble finding yours when you have parked it among hundreds of others. On the other hand the sign tells everyone you are a tourist, which might be a disadvantage if you are trying to blend in.
Fifth photo: MacBike at the central station is very popular, but for that reason I never tried them because they were always very full and had long waiting times. Their bikes also have big signs on them which show you are a tourist.
