transport and food

Hi, we will arrive in Amsterdam at the Centraal station. Which bus should we take to get to Lindendwarsstraat? At which stop do we get off?

Also, a strange question: I eat raw oats mixed with yoghurt in the mornings, to keep cholestrol numbers in check. I would like to bring (dry) rolled oats in my checked luggage. On previous visits I recall Schiphol airport as very strict - will the oats be a problem? Should I declare it?

On the other hand, if it is available in supermarkets, I could just buy it?

Thanks in advance!

www.9292.nl/en will help you plan all public transport in Amsterdam and the rest of the country. It will show various options on the left after you did your search. You can even click to see maps of the bits you need to walk.

In case you're flying into Schiphol, enter that as a starting point because you don't always need to go through Central Station.

Sorry I don't know if raw oats is the same as havermout... Which is for sale here.

If you are staying at the Eel House, Tweede Lindendwarsstraat 21 in the Jordaan then I suggest you take the train to Centraal Station and then taxi.

You can certainly buy rolled oats here but I doubt there would be an issue bringing them with you.

On most of my trips I have brought instant oatmeal in those small packages.

In over 20 trips to the NL I still am not sure what security thought about that because I have never once been stopped by security leaving the airport.
