Amsterdam Centraal (ASD) is the central railway station of Amsterdam. It is also one of the main railway hubs of the Netherlands and is used by 250,000 passengers a day, excluding transferring passengers. It is the starting point of Amsterdam Metro lines 51, 53 and 54.
The station is clean, with lots of terminals where you can check the trains' schedule and with good options for food (from supermarkets to fast-food or refreshments), book store (newspapers and magazines) and lots of self-service machines to buy tickets. The only thing that can bother the visitor is that very few self-service machines take money and, when they take it, they accept only coins. Then, in order to buy your ticket with cash, you have to go to the service center.
Amsterdam Centraal's building was designed by Pierre Cuypers and A. L. van Gendt. It first opened in 1889 and features a roof span of approximately 40 metres fabricated in cast iron by Andrew Handyside of Derby, England. The station is currently under reconstruction due to the construction of the North/South metro line (metro line 52).
Amsterdam Centraal is twinned with Liverpool Street station in London, United Kingdom, the other terminus of the Dutchflyer rail-ferry service.
