We are just 25 minutes from the airport and a 5-minute ferry ride from the main train station. With the stunning views across the water throughout the journey, it makes an exquisite alternative to the tram. Plus, the ferry runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
From Amsterdam Centraal Train Station, follow the signs to the West Exit, then those that say ‘Noord’. Here, jump on the free 5 minute ferry to ‘Veer Buiksloterweg’ that runs every 7 minutes during the day (make sure you take the correct boat as one also goes to NDSM Werf). Boats are a bit less frequent in the evenings so be smart and download the timetable to check your journey http://www.ilovenoord.com/ferry/.
Good news, you’re almost there! As you step off the boat, walk straight along the road in front of you, passing the cafés on your left until you reach a car park. Take a left turn just after the car park and keep walking until you have crossed the bridge that leads to the other side of the canal. Once here, turn left and walk down the side of the large brown building until you reach a door on your right. Here you’ll find ClinkNOORD!
