It is very easy to get to from the Schiphol airport on a layover. It takes around 20 minutes on the train. The inside is modern, and the facade has medieval castle looks. The station is huge and attached to the stations there are quite...More

I wouldnt call Centraal Station an attraction, however I did enjoy having a beer tasting flight at the Little Delirium bar. For those just arriving to Amsterdam, Centraal Station is your hub for trains to the airport and sorrounding area, as well as public transportation...More

You get struck by how beautiful the building is when you step outside and turn around. Staff are extremely helpful, as with everywhere in Amsterdam. Great range of food and drink shops too, and the layout of the station is extremely easy to get around.

Trains, trams, ferries and taxis come together at the Amsterdam station. There is a good train system for the Netherlands and it links into the rest of Europe. From the station it is a close walk to the main part of the city with accommodation...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yes you can do individual journeys and pay the driver, or get 24/48 hour pass which is cheaper. Great way to get around main sites of Amsterdam!
