Practical information regarding transport from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to the Venue:

“De Roos” P.C. Hoofdstraat 183 1071 BW Amsterdam, is centrally located at Vondelpark and close to Museumplein, Leidseplein (= square). De Roos has much culture nearby: theatres, museums, music venues, cinema, market and ‘the Heineken’ – all with easy access by public transport. From central station, east and west Amsterdam trams go to the ‘Leidseplein’, and from there 10 minute walk. Trams 3, 1, 2 and 17 stop very close to the Roos.

For accommodation there are many possibilities by local public transport (GVB). There are also hotels further from the centre, like east, south east, (new) west and north (Metro 52 North south line walk about 15 minutes).

Not far from Vondelpark, there are relatively cheap hotels with small rooms and minimal service. In the Vondelpark and in East there are Stay Okay hostels and near Leidseplein hostels with shared rooms and or toilet/shower; some have private rooms.

In Amsterdam (new) west and east there are really nice and cheap places to eat well, despite gentrification. Schiphol has trains direct to Amsterdam Central station where you can take a variety of trams and metro (in front) and busses (behind). Trains to southeast (Duivendrecht) and west (Lelylaan) which bring you close to cheaper hotels (Bastion, Ibis).

You can buy tickets for public transportation within Amsterdam in a white wooden building in front of the train station. See:
Also you can buy an OV ticket, where you add money to travel in and outside Amsterdam: Take care to check in and out every time you go in or out a station or the bus or metro.

Most touristic venues can be reached by public transportation. Busses behind central station to the ‘De Zaanse Schans’ windmills and ‘De Keukenhof’ big flower exposition.
