Amsterdam is best explored by water, and this affordable boat cruise gives you unobstructed views of canal-side attractions like the Anne Frank House and Hermitage Museum. The boat’s small size and comfortable seating mean you won't be jostled by crowds, and you can enjoy unlimited Heineken beer, wine, and soft drinks while gliding through Amsterdam’s UNESCO-listed waterways.

This is the central place! where everything happens. We arrived from Brussel at the central station, went back and forth to our hotel and the city and embark to Germany at this station as well. It will connects you anywhere in Europe. Very organized and clean. Several restaurants and people and helpers speaking English and other languages. Also, trains always leave on time. Behind the central station there is the ferry service that connects you to the other side of Amsterdam, where the music museum is located. Architecture is spectacular.

the station is really huge but its quite easy to navigate inside. there were some renovation works happening when i visited though so we couldnt get good pictures. and it was really crowded too. there were a lot of luggage lockers to store your bags while you travel too. a tad expensive but really convenient.

A very busy area, easy to get lost. Maps would be so handy, even if displayed on a board. One could easily walk in circles to find the direction required to leave for your destination, not much verbal assistance.

1) The grandiose building is impressive and maintained well. This is the main railway station of Amsterdam where all major in/out rail routes converge. 2) The station is old fashioned, means all platforms are on same level, as against many modern railway stations where platforms are on different levels. However the station is clean and well maintained. 3) There are many shops, coffee shops, breakfast places and restaurants inside the building. We tasted two coffees shops which served extremely good and hot food. Two distinctive shops we visited were Delft Potteries and Henry Willig Cheese, both with excellent choices. 4) We can find good hotels to stay just near the station. There is a canal network in front from where we can take canal cruise tours. We also have all tram stops, from where we can travel to anywhere in Amsterdam by tram. 5) Moreover, all major tourist spots are on a walking distance, some short, some long. 6) Overall a must visit place when you are in Amsterdam.
