Getting There in AmsterdamEdit This
Amsterdam is easily accessible by a number of different forms of transportation depending on which country you are traveling from. In addition to numerous travel options such as air, bus, boat, train or car, travel to Amsterdam is relatively cheap and frequent.
For detailed information on all forms of travel to Amsterdam visit the Amsterdam Tourism Board ( www.visitamsterdam.nl), The City of Amsterdam ( www.amsterdam.nl) or the Netherlands Board of Tourism ( www.holland.com).
Some of the top airlines flying to Amsterdam's main airport (Schiphol Airport, www.schiphol.nl) include: Aer Lingus, Condor, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Martinair, Northwest Airlines, and US Airways.
Tip: Arriving by car to the city center is discouraged due to narrow streets and high parking rates. You can leave your car in P+R transferiums, some offer long term parking at cheaper rates such as Amsterdam ArenA or leave your car at Schiphol airport ( www.schiphol.nl). The costs, time issues and safety concerns associated with driving in Amsterdam far outweigh the benefits.

Getting to and from the airport is easy. Trains run from Central Station every 15 minutes and there are also trains from other stations, like Zuid. The train trip from Central Station to the airport will take you about 20 minutes. A taxi will set you back around 30 Euros and the train costs 4 Euros.
