Operated by hydrofoils that used to serve the vast lakes in Russia, this is a great way to see Amsterdam's harbor. Traveling at 65kph on the way from the back of Central Station to Ijmuiden, you get to see just what a port city Amsterdam is. From...more

Fast, clean and cost effective way to transfer from the port of Ijmuiden to Amsterdam. Terminals at the central rail station so perfect for making transfers to trams, buses etc to visit other parts of the city.

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
