Amsterdam central station area is one of the most busiest places in Amsterdam, the building is very nice with a great outside architecture, inside the station trains go and come from Amsterdam (airport, ..) and outside Asmterdam (other dutch cities, some european cities, ..), outside the station is busy as inside, trams, bus, taxis and boat canal tours are serving people in Amsterdam area.
Okay so its a train station, and a particularly busy one with pick-pockets a plenty; but its a beautiful building in its own right. I recommend anyone to take time to admire its architectural beauty (in amongst the rubble of the building site!)
If you have a layover in Amsterdam it's really easy to get to town and explore. There's a train from the airport that takes about 20 min to get to the central station. From there you can easily see the canals, red light district and visit a cafe in a couple hours.
Amsterdam sail is an exciting event. For those, who like ships, yachts, and other things that float in the water should definetely visit Amsterdam to see this event. It is held once in 5 years (next will be in 2010). So if you'd like to visit Amsterdam someday, plan it for 2010 and among other things you'll see a famous Amsterdam Sail :)!
This area is very busy with padestrians,cars,taxis,buses,trams,canal boats and trains. In short it is the main communications link for Amsterdam. Although it is a busy area, there are also quite a few bars and hotels nearby such as `Grasshoppers` and `Teasers` some of the more male orientated bars.
If you pull in to Amsterdam by train, or of course take the train from the airport, you arrive at the Centraal Station, a wonderful piece of architecture in of itself. Step out of the station, and behold: Amsterdam! Right away you will notice the hustle and bustle of this unique and beautiful city. You also will take in the magnificent St. Nicolaas Kerk, an exquisite baroque church just on the other side of the square. Look around, snap some photos, and start your journey. It's only just the beginning!!!
A estação foi terminada em 1889. Tornou-se um símbolo da emergente idade industrial. um sinal de que Amesterdão começava a olhar para o futuro em vez de olhar para a Idade de Ouro.

This is the only Central Station of Amsterdam located in central Amsterdam. From the Schiphol-airport it's a peace of cake ... going into the very centre of A'dam. Meeting your friends, or having them behind ...
At least every hour there is a connexion to: The Hage, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Antwerp, Brussels. This beautiful neo Renaissance train station was built by P.J.H.
