Destinations

Your journey from door to door

Amsterdam : Outbound journey / Return journey
Practical information and a variety of services (public transport, trains, carpooling, taxi, etc.) make your trip, both before and after your train journey, even simpler. Vehicle access to the city centre and to the station is particularly difficult. We recommend that you use public transport as the station has very good connections, or walking or, like the people of Amsterdam, cycling!
