Getting here

Amsterdam is served by one of Europe’s largest hubs, Schiphol Airport. situated less than 10 km south of the city.

It has one large terminal, with three large departure halls, connected land and air side. Some low-cost carriers have moved some of their flights to other Dutch airports, such as Rotterdam or The Hague, which are connected to Amsterdam by rail.

There is a rail station at Schiphol airport, which connects not just with the city (in about 20-30 minutes) but also other key destinations in the Netherlands and beyond.

The main rail station (Central Station / Centraal) is the hub of Amsterdam’s transport network and in fact an imposing neo-gothic building that is a landmark in itself.
