Amsterdam tourist office
We found the tourist office a very professional service. Sure they would rather sell you something than answer your questions, but the tourist information centre is a great information source that dwarfs other countries offerings.
The most beautiful tourist office is upstairs on track two in "Centraal Station" and open the longest (usually 8am-8pm). The old one is still in front of the station across the tram tracks. The other locations are: Leidseplein (usually 9am-7pm), Stadionplein (in the South) and at the Airport.
The cost for the room reservation through the Amsterdam Tourist Office is 3 EUR
so we fairly advise to book your rooms in advance in
order to avoid
queuing in the rain..
The tourist office is also the best place to buy the "I Amsterdam Card" (previously knowns as Amsterdam Pass), a special card entitling the holder to free transport, museums and few other discounts.
There are four tourist offices in Amsterdam:
- Opposite the Central Station
A notable building marked "Tourist Info and Tickets" right to be seen when you exit the Central Station in the city direction.
- Inside Central Station
Upstairs from the main station hall to platform 2b.
Just off the square: corner Leidseplein and Leidsestraat.
- Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

Apart from the Amsterdam office, there is the National Board of Holland Tourism, which is especially useful if you plan to visit any of the tourist attractions beyond Amsterdam, like the windmills, castles or the tulip gardens.
