In the last few years the growth of the budget airline industry has made Amsterdam more accessible than ever before, and air fares have plummeted while the choice of carriers from many locations has has increased.


Competitively priced flights have encouraged not only other airlines, but also train, ferry & bus companies to improve their services and review their prices to compete. It has never been cheaper to get to Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is served by Schiphol Airport - one of the busiest and best airports in the world - only 15 km (and a short train ride) away from the city centre.

Getting Around Amsterdam


Getting around Amsterdam using public transport is inexpensive, quick and convenient.


The city is served by an integrated train, tram, bus and ferry network, organised into a zone system using common tickets for journeys using more than one type of transport / route.


All major attractions are well served by the network - which is also well coordinated with integrated timetabling, and shared terminals in many places.


There is an online travel planning service - which even estimates the time it takes to walk between platforms - but this is only currently available in Dutch (click here if you want to give it a try!)


In addition to Amsterdam’s public transport networks are a number other more novel options which provide a great way to experience Amsterdam's sights more intimately - with canal tour boats and taxis, human-powered three-wheelers, horse & buggies all available to take you where you want to go, or just sight-seeing.
