I am landing at Schipol and need to get to Amsterdam Centraal - what is the quickest way?
You take the train to Amsterdam Central station and there you change to the direct train to Den Helder The person at the ticket office can print out an iternarary
Underneath Schiphol Airport a railwaytrack brings you directly to A'dam CS. Just go after leaving the Gate to the central Plaza and watch for escalators down to the underground station. You can buy tickets at the NS-lokets (NS = Dutch Railways) in the Plaza-ground. It's all incredably easy! Enjoy your stay in our capitol and have fun! Paul
Look at me renewed Schiphol page; there are pictures of everything you are looking for at Schiphol. ([original VT link]. You might have to change trains at Sloterdijk (West of Amsterdam) if you want to travel to Den Helder. PJ
Check http://www.ns.nl/domestic/index.cgi for railway info, schedules etc.
Thanks to everyone who helped with my question.. it is nice to know that people care enough to answer. I look forward to visiting Holland.
