Getting to Amsterdam
Amsterdam is well-connected to Europe and the world through air and rail hubs. The closest airport (and one of the world's busiest) is Schiphol, from which regular trains run to Amsterdam. High-speed trains link Amsterdam to locations in the UK, France, Belgium and Germany.
Getting around Amsterdam
Amsterdam uses a public transport chip card (the OV-chipkaart) on trams, buses and metros. Disposable paper cards valid for one hour or 1-7 days are available. The hour and single-day cards can be purchased on trams and buses while the multi-day ones can be purchased at ticket vending machines found in all transport stations.
A card that also covers transit to and from Schiphol is available for purchase online here, and can be picked up at the airport.
Note that cash is not accepted for ticket purchase, and you must remember to check in and out on public transit.
Taxis and Uber are also available. Amsterdam is well-known for its excellent cycling infrastructure, and many bicycle rental locations are available throughout the city.
