2 - Until what time the trains run?

3 - Where can I buy the ticket?

Trains run 24/7, but only once an hour after midnight. Check www.ns.nl for more details. You can buy tickets either from vending machines or ticket office in Schiphol Plaza. Not sure until when the ticket office is open though. The vending machines accept cards only (some also accept coins, no bills). If you have to wait for your luggage to arrive you may also buy your tickets at the vending machines next to the bagage belts already. The machines are easily recognizable by their bright yellow color.

Actually there's a train at 0007, 0016 & 0030. If your plane does not land until 2350 then I doubt you will get out before 0030, later if you have a bag to collect.

After 0100 trains run hourly.

Thanks for your opinions.

Just another question:

The train goes straight to the central station or other stations have stops in the city of Amsterdam? What station is the train stop?

Some trains will stop at Lelylaan and Sloterdijk, some will jsut pass through there and only stop at Centraal. If you are worried about getting off at the wrong station then don't.

Most of the trains terminate at Amterdam Centraal anyway and that station is hard to miss.

They always announce Centraal station in Dutch and English anyway.

You cant go wrong and as above you will hear an announcement in both Dutch and English and will only take 15 mins or so direct to A'dam Central from Schipol
