How do I get from Amsterdam to Den Over (Afsluitdyk)
I will visit Holland in June and want to visit my sister in DenOever - I logeer in Amsterdam. Bus? Trein? Bus en Trein?
You need this website: http://journeyplanner.9292.nl/
Possibly your Dutch may be good enough to use the Dutch version, which is slightly better: http://www.9292ov.nl/
Simply put in your accommodation address in Amsterdam and your sister's address and it will tell you which train and bus to take.
Without these details the general route is: train either to Alkmaar or Hoorn and bus from there. The trip is about 1 hour 40 minutes and would cost you about 12 euro all in all (one way).
I already mention in my tip:
[original VT link]
that the Den Oever bus station is an important stop for the Interlinerbus (Qliner 350).
It's a bit in the middle of nowhere location, but I'm sure your sister can fill in the local details or just pick you up at the bus station.
Have a great journey and enjoy a walk along the Waddenzee (or Amstelmeer).
