The main railway station of Amsterdam, the Netherlands – and a special one: on both sides accompanied by water; in the north the big canels leading to the Markermeer and the North Sea; in the south the town canals leading through the city. It is a magnificient building made from red brick and inspired by the Dutch Renaissance.
Especially remarkable are the towers of the building and the clocks – not only showing the time but even the wind direction. Different trains to the big cities in Europe arrive and leave here. If you want to travel to or from Germany, there are two connections: the IC via Hanover to Berlin and the ICE international (and in addition a night train) via Cologne to Frankfurt.
If you exit Amsterdam Centraal you’ll immediatly find the information center, the tram stop (you can by tickets from the driver) and also the ports for the canal cruises. If you walk to the south you can enter the Damrak which leads you to the town hall and the city center.
