    take the train

    by iaint Updated Dec 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get the train from Central Station (Amsterdam) to Zandvoort. Its at the end of the line (just as well really, or you'd end up in the North Sea).

    If you're coming from Schipol you don't even have to go all the way into the city. You can change at a suburban station (Sloterdijk maybe) and catch the Zandvoort train

    Trains from Amsterdam-Central station go directly to Zandvoort-aan-Zee. First class tickets are always worth the extra money in high season, as 2nd class will be packed. For detailed train schedules, rates see website www.ns.nl you can print out your itinerary before leaving home.

    Do take the train to Amsterdam

    If you are planning to visit Amsterdam - do take the train. Parking is expensive in Amsterdam and you might get hooked up in traffic. Also you can have a beer or two in one of the nice pubs ;-)

    Trains leave every 30min. from Zandvoort to Haarlem. Change at Haarlem to get to Amsterdam Central station (€8.30 return and approx. 30min by train). The station in Zandvoort is well prepaired for tourists and hand outs a small notice with the train times from / to Amsterdam on request.

    Stayed here in March 2012. I'd never been b4 and was amazed at the Long beach. Fine sand and not a stone on it. travelling around is easy as everywhere is within walking distance. If you like racing there is a race track so i would recommend finding out about races b4 you go....and Yanks coffeeshop is a must ;)
    Haarlem is 10 minutes away and Amsterdam is 20 - 25. we used the hydrofoil ferry to travel into Amsterdam which was different but it was cheap, direct and made you feel like a kid again.

    A lovely place to stay, i highly recommend it :)

    OV-fiets - Zandvoort

    At the Zandvoort Train Station you can rent an "OV-fiets" (public rental bicycle).

    It's housed in a small self-service building in front of the station.

    The bicycle rantal is Euro 2.85 per 20 hours. This is a membership agreement for which you pay an additional Euro 7.50 annual fee. Dutch bicycle websites

    spend a little more.

    by wee_lassie Updated Jul 24, 2006

    My partner and I decided to take the train from Amsterdam to Zanvoort (after a tip from a VT member) we did notice that the train(s) were extreemly busy, as the weather was just so hot and sunny. We made the decision to purchase a first class ticket at 13.50 euros return, just so we could travel in a little more comfort - it was a worthwhile expense, we got a seat and a chance to look out the (open) window! it was like a cattle market in the other carriages, far too hot (36C+) to be standing around staring into the armpit of another passenger!

    Train trip from hell

    by l-e-z-ah Written Jul 28, 2004

    don't hope too much that u will get any seat in d train during busy hours at good weather... it's more likely that u will be standing in d midst of sweating people... better practice holding ur breath beforehand...........

    P.S. see d bright side, at least u only have 2 endure it for 15 minutes (that's if u take train from Haarlem, 30 minutes from Amsterdam)

    Definetly take the train

    by sambarnett Written Sep 7, 2002

    Zandvoort aan Zee is thirty-five minutes from Amsterdam and ten minutes from Haarlem. Traffic jams are a certainty on nice days and weekends and the Zandvoort train station is only a five minute walk from the sea shore. Take the train!

    General directions

    by nighthawk Written Dec 9, 2002

    Zandvoort is an ideally situated seaside resort. It's the main beach for those people living in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam which is only 30 kilometers away and can be reached by train in about 30 minutes.

    Zandvoort is easy to reach by train.

    Just a 10 minutes ride from Haarlem or 30 minutes from Amsterdam Central.

    Zandvoort is at the end of the tracks.
