In addition to its ever-present bicycles, Amsterdam boasts an impressive public transport network including metros, buses, trams, ferries and trains to help you get around the city. Here’s what you need to know. You can find the official visitor’s guide here.
Transfers from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to the city center are quick and inexpensive. Trains run up to 10 times an hour. Journey time to Amsterdam Central Station is 15 minutes and costs just €4.20.
Our host hotels are all located on the east side of Amsterdam. Hotel Casa is located next to Amsterdam Amstel Station for convenient train, bus, tram and metro connections. Volkshotel and The Student Hotel are very close, but their nearest metro stop is Wibautstraat. Stayokay Hostel is located near Amsterdam Muiderpoort Station, easily reached by train and bus.
Licensed taxis can be found at designated stands or hailed on the street. A taxi ride from the airport to the host hotels costs approximately €45. Uber and Lyft services are also available.
Park-and-Ride facilities are available along Amsterdam’s A10 ring road. They are probably your best bet if you are arriving by car.
In Amsterdam, bicycles really do rule the road! For the full local experience, you can explore the whole city safely by bicycle. Most roads have separate bike lanes, and rentals are available by the hour, day or week from a huge choice of locations.
Our conveniently compact country has an excellent rail network. With connections between most cities at least twice an hour, it is easy to explore the Netherlands by train. Most train stations will also have bike rental facilities to keep you rolling when you get there.
On tournament days, a free shuttle for paid Bingham Cup participants will run between our host hotels and the pitches in suburban Amstelveen. Travel time is approximately 25 minutes.
Please note that if you choose to stay elsewhere, you’ll need to make your own way to the host hotels to take advantage of the free shuttle. Public transport is also available. Frequent buses stop next to the venue and the Sportlaan metro stop is just 10-minutes’ walk away. Free parking is available close to the pitches, too..
