Central station is usually a crowded place, but this one has several nice place around as church, museum and an open market to eat some typical food: pies, waffles, cheese, sausages.
For people watching, this must be the best place in the world, but watch your wallet! There is always entertainment just outside the front door. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay, find the VVV and some little old lady will pull you out of line and offer a room in her home.
Amsterdam Central Station has been operated since 1889. It is not only a station but it is one of beautiful buildings in amsterdam. Up to now, people are still busy building a tunnel as underwater as underground that connect north amsterdam to the centre of amsterdam, special for the bicycle.

Beautiful neo classical facade. A one-of a-kind exterior for a railway station. The inside, though, could be a railway station in any city. The information booth is helpful but is not opened on weekends. The service counters are also ok. The gateway into central Amsterdam and excellent transportation for the tourist. This is the starting place to trains around the... More

It is huge and has had many additions to it since it was first built back in around 1890. Several days later we had to catch the train to... More
The main access point for tourists arriving in Amsterdam, the neoclassical building is impressive both in scale and design. Unsurprisingly, the interior could be anywhere, however! Travellers will find the signage good and staff are helpful. The ticket machines can be a bit confusing.
Well, it has lots of trains which is a good sign with railway stations. Platforms 1 to 14 have seating while platform 15 does not. The station is well sign posted and easy to get around. There are numerous retail outlets including snack bars. The building itself is an impressive example of the expression of civic pride that went in... More
As a student who lived in Almere getting stuck at Amsterdam Centraal Station at 4 AM in the morning during a harsh February winter is not the place you want to be in. It would be great if there was some type of indoor facility to shy away from the cold during the winter. Other than that Amsterdam Centraal is... More
