How do I get to the A’DAM LOOKOUT in Amsterdam by Public Transport?

A’DAM LOOKOUT
The A’DAM LOOKOUT is a viewing point on top of the A’DAM Toren (Amsterdam Tower) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The 22-story building was built in 1965 by Royal Dutch Shell and has housed the management of Shell and some of it’s general services for years. In 2009 Shell left the building. The former Shell building was renovated and redeveloped and now houses companies, bars, restaurants and the spectacular rooftop observation deck. Since the mast was placed on top of the building, the height of the building is approximately 100 meters (328 ft.)

The A’DAM LOOKOUT was opened in 2016, joining the European observation points of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Fernsehturm in Berlin, the Atomium in Brussels and the London Eye in England. On the roof is Europe’s highest swing. You swing over the edge of the tower at a thrilling height of almost 100 meters above the ground. Inside the A’DAM LOOKOUT, you can take a seat in the Amsterdam VR Ride. Put on the VR glasses and find yourself in a lifelike roller coaster ride right through the city. The Sky Bar and Panorama Restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks.

The building is easy to spot as it’s situated right next to the building of the Eye Film Institute in the North part of Amsterdam, just across Amsterdam’s waterfront at the IJ, which is at the backside of Amsterdam Centraal station. It’s therefore easy to reach by public transport. Free ferries cross the water of the IJ every 4 to 6 minutes and it only takes 5 minutes to cross the water.

Amsterdam Centraal station
Amsterdam Centraal Station is the largest railway station in Amsterdam, both for national and international trains. It’s also an important transfer hub, as many trams, local and regional buses and metros stop here. Amsterdam Centraal station is often the final stop of the line. At the north side of the building, free blue-and-white ferries for pedestrians, cyclists and mopeds cross the River IJ, heading to the Amsterdam-Noord (north) borough, where the A’DAM LOOKOUT is located. At the front side of the building (the south- city center side) are the the tram platforms, the main Amsterdam tourist office, as well as some departure quays for tourist boats which cruise the city’s famous canals.

Amsterdam Centraal station was designed by Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers and opened in 1889. Cuypers’ design of the building resembled his other architectural masterpiece, the Rijksmuseum, of which the construction had begun in 1876. While Cuypers was the principal architect of the station, it is believed that he focused mostly on the decoration of the station building and left the structural design to railway engineers. It features a Gothic, Renaissance Revival station building and a cast iron platform roof spanning approximately 40 meters. Since 1997, the station building, underground passages, metro station, and the surrounding area have been undergoing major reconstruction and renovation works to accommodate the North-South Line metro route, which was opened on 22 July 2018.

Most visitors to the A’DAM LOOKOUT will travel via Amsterdam Centraal station, as Central station is is just a free 5 minutes ferry ride plus 3 minutes walk away.

Trams to Amsterdam Centraal station
There are two major tram platforms at Stationsplein, near the station’s main entrance at the south/city center side of Amsterdam.

A. Tram 4, 14, 24 and 26 stop at platform A, east side. These trams (except tram 26) pas the city center of Amsterdam, crossing Dam Square and passing the Bijenkorf department store.

B. Tram 2, 12, 13 and 17 stop at platform B, west side. Those trams pass the city center and Dam Square at the west side of the square, behind the Royal Palace Amsterdam.

Walking route from two tram platforms.
As the two tram platforms are at the at the south/city center side of Amsterdam, you have to cross the station building to the north side of the building. There are 2 ways to do this:

Underpass outside
If you just want to go to the other side of the building fast and easily, without going inside the busy station hall, just follow the front of the building to the left/west side. At the west side of the building, there’s a an underpass for pedestrians and cyclists, leading to the waterfront and ferry F3 Buiksloterweg. There’s also an underpass at the east side (near tram platform A), but using this underpass is NOT recommended and even dangerous, as this underpass is meant for busses and trams.

How do I get to the Anne Frank House Amsterdam by Public Transport?

Anne Frank House
The Anne Frank House (Dutch: Anne Frank Huis) is a museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank (12 June 1929 – February or March 1945). The building is located on one of the famous canals of Amsterdam, called the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in the city center of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in some concealed rooms behind a bookcase in a 17th-century canal house, known as the Secret Annex (Dutch: Achterhuis). From June 1942, thirteen year old Anne kept a diary in which she wrote regularly, until the family’s arrest by the Gestapo in August 1944. Following their arrest, Anne and her sister, Margot, were transferred from Auschwitz to Bergen-Belsen, where they died (probably of typhus) a few months later.

Her father Otto, the only survivor of the Frank family, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that her diary had been saved by his secretary, Miep Gies, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch version and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl, and has since been translated into over 70 languages.

Ten years later the Anne Frank Foundation was established to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the block.

The museum opened on 3 May 1960. It preserves the hiding place, has a permanent exhibition on the life and times of Anne Frank, and has an exhibition space about all forms of persecution and discrimination. In 2013 and 2014, the museum had 1.2 million visitors and was the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands, after the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.

For example, a walk from Dam Square to the Moco Museum would take 20 minutes and you’ll pass the famous canals of Amsterdam along the way. It is possible to park your car near the Moco Museum. However, the number of parking places available is limited and parking your car in Amsterdam is very expensive. Under the Museumplein is a supervised underground parking garage. The entrance is at the side of the Concertgebouw, next to the Albert Heijn supermarket. Taxis in The Netherlands are expensive and the Moco Museum is in a busy area, so the best way to visit the museum is by foot, rented bike, or public transport.

Public transport options
The Moco Museum is located just south of the city center of Amsterdam, in a busy area. There are many public transport options, which can make it slightly confusing. The one which is the best for you, depends on your starting point (e.g. hotel or railway station). You can reach the Moco Museum from 9 railway stations in the Amsterdam area. Located at the Museumplein (Museum Square) are three major museums. Museumplein is a nice public square. So, if you arrive anywhere near Museumplein (Museum Square) by public transport and don’t mind to walk a couple of minutes, you should be fine.

How do I get to the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam by Public Transport?

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is a museum for modern art, contemporary art, and design located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, and the Concertgebouw. In 2013, the museum had 700,000 visitors. It was the 4th most visited museum in the Netherlands, after the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Anne Frank House.
how do i get to the stedelijk museum amsterdam by public transport 01

The museum has one of the world’s most important collections of modern and contemporary art. It contains almost 90,000 objects, including paintings, drawings, furniture, sculptures, and photographs. Some of the most renowned artists whose work is featured in the Stedelijk Museum include the likes of Karel Appel, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Paul Cézanne and Vincent van Gogh. In “The Stedelijk“, you can explore more than 100 years of modern art history and several key movements including De Stijl, Bauhaus, Pop, Cobra and Abstract Expressionism. The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam was the first western European museum for modern art to collect photography. The collection includes seminal photographers of both the Dutch and international avant-garde in the interbellum period, an extensive selection of post-war Dutch photographers, artist portraits, photojournalism, and autonomous fine art photography from the 1970s onward.

The Stedelijk Museum opened on September 14, 1895 as an initiative of the local authority and private individuals. During World War II, the Stedelijk collection and that of the Amsterdam Museum were transferred for safekeeping to a bunker in the sand-hills near Santpoort. Museum staff took turns keeping watch. The old building was forced to close in January 2004 when it no longer complied with fire regulations. The Stedelijk was temporarily relocated to the Post-CS building, an old building of the Postal Service close to the Amsterdam Central Station. After further discussions about whether to relocate the contemporary art museum to an Amsterdam park, a new jury eventually awarded Benthem Crouwel Architects the renovation and construction contract for their design for the new building, referred to as “The Bathtub”. After eight years of work, the new Stedelijk opened on September 23, 2012. With the renovation and expansion, the highlights of the collection are on display in the old building in a series of changing presentations. The new wing consists of a large glassed entrance, which opens onto the Museum Square, and galleries for temporary exhibitions on the upper level and in the basement. It also houses the museum shop, restaurant and library, as well as an auditorium. The new Stedelijk has an exhibition surface area of 8,000 square meters, which is double its previous gallery space
