Have questions about this city?
The only difficult part of getting around in Amsterdam is deciding on which mode of travel. From the airport getting downtown is easy. The subway train in the airport basement takes you to the downtown train station that is a transportation hub for streetcars and canal boats as well as a place to park a few thousand bicycles.
Walking is a possibility and a great way to see everything in detail if you can avoid being run down by the 600,000 bicyclists in Amsterdam. The Dutch are a wonderful friendly people, but they will run you down.
If your time is extremely limited a guided tour is best. If you want to do your own thing a suggested walking route would be to 13th century Dam Square where there is always something happening. Fronting the square are the Royal Palace, Hotel Krasnapolsky, Madame Tussauds, and New Church. The controversially phallic Memorial Statue might be seen as a guidepost to the adjacent red Light district.
If you can tear yourself away, tram on over to be one of a million annual visitors to view the masters art works and Delft ceramics at the being renovated Rijksmuseum. Across the park are Van Gogh’s offerings, and adjacent is one of many diamond cutters who offer free tours, but no samples.
Jump on a water taxi to Anne Frank’s house. Complete the circle back to Central station by water taxi. You are able to do all these things because you bought the Amsterdam Card.
