Centraal Station - Amsterdam

Amsterdam's Central Station is one of the busiest places in Europe. It caters for tourists and locals and processes huge volumes of people every day.

It is located very close to the city center and is the transport hub for trains, the metro, buses, trams and even for ferries, which are located on the northern side of the station.

It is a striking red brick building, constructed in the late 19th century in a mainly neo-renaissance style on three man-made islands.

The building also houses a variety of shops, with many opening from 7am to 1am. There are plenty of places to get something to eat, from a quick takeaway to a more substantial meal. The main Amsterdam Tourist Office is also located near the station.

For many international tourists, it's their first glimpse of downtown Amsterdam as many of them travel directly from Schiphol Airport to Central Station.
