  • Trams

    Amsterdam Transportation

    On my January ‘15 visit we were able to walk to our chosen sites because our apartment (Westerpark area) was so close to the city centre. Once we did take the tram. It was a cold, wet & windy morning, and as the Line 10 tram would take us directly from our apartment to the Rijksmuseum, that’s what we chose. Unlike trams in Delft (which we’d used...

    I was in Amsterdam yesterday for a few hours and took the train into the city from the airport. I hadn’t done that for many years, but since the Dutch railway recently won the competition to take over the Scotrail franchise, it was of more interest. It was all very easy - mostly. The station concourse at the airport has many electronic ticket...

    I recently returned from a visit to Amsterdam, having last been there in 2013. I'm almost certain that on my two previous visits I didn't have to 'tap' my train tickets as I entered and left the railway stations. Maybe I should have done but ignored it. I certainly ignored it this time, even though the ticket itself told me (in English) that I...

    Used Taxi Lichstad when in Eindhoven for the day to get back to airport. Bennie kept in touch via email before I arrived, and then via text when I was in Eindhoven to ensure I knew when and where I'd be picked up etc, and to give a rough idea of cost. Fantastic. No hesitation to use again.

    I could have put this under 'Schiphol', because it is a settlement in its own right, but as I've only ever set foot outside the airport terminal it didn't seem fair to say I'd visited Schiphol! I must admit that Schiphol is one of the nicest airports I've ever used. It's clean, it's bright, the staff are cheery and pleasant with (of course)...
