Amsterdam Transportation

Jump to last reply

Starting to do some planning for our upcoming Amsterdam trip (9-14 April). Family of 4 with kids 12 & 9. We are staying at Laurierstraat 20 in the Jordaan (1 mile from Central).

Rough itinerary:
Day 0: arrive from Bruges at Central Station, check in , etc.
Day 1: Anne Frank House + walking tour
Day 2: Keukenhof gardens
Day 3: NEMO + other museum in afternoon (tbd)
Day 4: Zaanse Schans
Day 5: fly out from Schipol

Presumably, I'll need a train or train/bus on days 2, 4, 5. I'm assuming those tickets are simply purchased at the station on the day (or maybe a combo pass for Keukenhof).

The bigger question is the public transportation (trams) in the city. Looks like they encourage the use of day cards for 7.50/12.00/16.00/20.50/25.00/28.50€ for 1-6 days. The other option looks to be 2.70€ a pop.

So, for a family of 4 (looks like the kids are full boat), it would be around 114€ for unlimited travel for the stay or 11€ per ride. For the distances we are talking about (1 mile to station, 1.5 miles to NEMO, etc) wouldn't a taxi be on par or cheaper if we don't feel like walking??

If I went the multi-day card route, where are those purchased? I'm assuming that I can get the singles on the tram, is that correct?

Any logistic tips for the Keukenhof, Zaanse Schans and Schipol journeys? They seem fairly straightforward from what I've read.

Thanks for your help.
