While you're there

Amsterdam, capital city of the Netherlands

Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, is located in the province of North Holland. The city got its name from a dam in the river Amstel and was a small fishing village at its creation. Nowadays Amsterdam is a busy seaport and one of the top European financial centres as well as a major cultural hub. The canals, world-famous museums and historical sights makes Amsterdam one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. It has all the advantages of a big city: culture, nightlife, restaurants with international cuisine, good transport system. However, the city has also a quiet and relaxed atmosphere largely thanks to its extensive canals, low road traffic, small green parks and flower fields. In Amsterdam, places of interest are never far away, get a bike or hop on a tram for an authentic local experience. Amsterdam can be reached easily by train from other European capitals - Paris, London or Brussels.


Any visitor coming to Amsterdam by Thalys will step off at the Amsterdam Centraal Station. Head to the nearby Oude Zijde (old side) quarter. Its streets are packed with historic buildings and most notably the Oude Kerk, which is the oldest church in Amsterdam. This beautiful Gothic Basilica is now in the heart of the Red Light District! Afterwards, walk along the canal to reach Damstraat (Dam Street) which will lead you to the Dam Square.

Found in the very heart of the city, the square marks the place where the 13th century dam on the Amstel River was located. From boutiques and restaurants to monuments and museum, the square is encircled by several attractions. With more than 150 canals, a canal cruise in Amsterdam is not to be missed. Why not seize the opportunity to have lunch during a pancake cruise. After lunch, take the tram from the Dam Square to reach the Van Gogh Museum, which houses more than 200 paintings, letters and other personal stuff of the artist. As the evening is gently approaching, walk to the Vondelpark to let the steam off.

Don’t miss a detour to a Bruin Café for a taste of authentic Amsterdam flavour and Dutch culture. These local institutions with a laid-back atmosphere are a quintessential part of Amsterdam’s culture. They serve local beers, tea, coffee as well as the Jenever, a Dutch spirit alongside with meals. Hapjes (snacks) such as Bitterballen (deep-fried balls) are usually offered. Taste local cheese like the Edam and Gouda.

If you are looking for a shopping experience, you can either go to the De Bijenkorf, Amsterdam’s best-known department store or to Damrak, an effervescent shopping street.

Customer reviews

  • "Best way to travel"    
    Its the best way to get lost in Europe!!!  
  • "Great experience"    
    Easy, accessible, convenient, fast  
  • "I enjoyed "    
    The journey was excellent  
  • "Munich - Amsterdam"    
    Couch was incredible small - felt a bit suffocated sharing with six people. Journey was generally very noisy - don't expect to get much sleep on this train. Highly convenient that the train stopped at Utrecht. Timing was good too. Very accessible journey, just not at all comfortable.  
  • "Happy customer"    
    Happy with the trip, had a single seat with plenty of room in first class. Only disappointment was I couldn't get a cup of tea or coffee, apparently the jug was broken. Staff were very attentive. Clearer announcements might have been useful, not having travelled this trip before.  
  • "Confort and Wifi Available"    
    Very confort trip from Brussels to Amsterdam and the train stops in the Amsterdam Airport to make your journey easy. Wi-fi is available in the first class during the trip (not inside the tunnels) what makes the journey passes quickly. Definitely recommended.  
  • "Thalys to Paris - Amsterdam"    
    We bought our tickets online before our trip, as it was essential for our itinerary. It was also accepted with our VISA application. We had no problems whatsoever. We arrived at the Paris Nord station, found the intercity lines, looked at the departures/arrivals board, got the platform number, located our coach and got on the train. At the Thalys platforms, they have Thalys info – helpful and friendly. We’ve put our language in the back of our coach, found our seats and settled. Even though it was in second class, it was clean and comfortable. No questions or issues when they checked our tickets. From Amsterdam to Paris went just as smooth. I’ll do it again this way. Peace of mind!  
  • "Good and comfy"    
    The only bad thing that the wi fi did not work at the day of my travel  
  • "Train journey to Paris "    
    We thoroughly enjoyed the journey which was fast and efficient . However when we arrived at the station in Paris my daughter in error left her spectacles / glasses . She noticed the mistake within 2 minutes of getting off the train and tried to alert the driver but he drove off. Fortunately the duty officer on the train met us at the station and contacted the service desk . They promised to send the glasses to the Amsterdam central station service desk . When we arrived at the Amsterdam station , there was absolutely nothing left at the lost and found section nor was there any service desk . As these trains are used by tourists who are unfamiliar with the language etc , they should have a customer care toll free number . I looked on their website and only found addresses but no telephone numbers for customer care . We had travelled on 31 December 2013 from Paris to Amsterdam and my daughter was in coach 16 seat 75/76 . Time was 15.25 pm .It was an expensive pair .
