Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world. From Amsterdam canals to world-famous Amsterdam museums and historical Amsterdam sights, it is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. Amsterdam is also a city of tolerance and diversity. It has all the advantages of a big city: rich culture, lively Amsterdam nightlife, international restaurants, good transport system – but is quiet, and largely thanks to its extensive canals, has a little road traffic.
Eurobiofilms 2017 will take place from the 19th till the 22nd of September 2017 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. For your convenience we have drafted up some information on how to get around.
Amsterdam has a fine maze of public transport lines and is by far the easiest way to get around. It’s a reliable and affordable way to reach any destination.
In the public transport you can use a chipcard. This is the payment method used for public transport throughout the Netherlands. You can obtain the paper chip tickets at either a station or on the bus/tram. When you purchase this ticket, it has a preloaded travel product on it, for example, 1 hours or multiple days of travel.
If you are intending on traveling a lot by public transport we would advise you to purchase a multiple day ticket (72 hr/€17, 96 hr/€22) either at the transport company GVB, (see link below) or buy a Amsterdam Travel Ticket (72 hr/€26) (see link below). Both can be purchased at the airport and the latter also includes the train transfer from Schiphol airport to the city centre. Please go to the links below on where to get the cards and on how to use them.
Arrival at Schiphol airport
Upon arrival at Schiphol Amsterdam Airport, the best way to get into Amsterdam is to find your way to the public transport system. Simply collect your bags, follow the signs from the Arrivals Hall, and you’ll be on your way in no time. A train ride to Amsterdam Central station takes around 15 minutes and always leaves from track 1-2.
If you do opt to take a taxi, please be warned only to use official taxi’s from the taxi stand. These are located just outside the departures lounge and is well signposted. Do not take unsolicited rides from taxi touts. Average taxi fares from the Schiphol to the city centre are around €35.
