Travel to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a well-connected European city that can be reached easily from across the country and abroad. Amsterdam has an excellent railway infrastructure. Intercity trains hailing from every corner of the Netherlands make a stop at Amsterdam Central Station, including high-speed trains from France, Germany and the UK.

The main international airport of the Netherlands is Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Some budget airlines operate via Eindhoven Airport, connected by bus with Eindhoven Central Station and operate via Rotterdam The Hague Airport from where we can easily take a direct train to Rotterdam Central Station. Both train stations are linked directly with Amsterdam Centraal.
