By public transport
From Amsterdam Central Station you can:
– take a taxi (costs about € 13.-) Do show the complete address to the taxi driver and make it clear you want to go to Zwanenburgwal 296 right in the city center of Amsterdam = next to the Muziektheater on the Amstel river!
– take the underground metro to Waterlooplein (2nd stop)
you can buy a ticket in the underground station entrance
– take the street tram lines 4, 16, 24 and 25 towards the Muntplein (3rd stop) for which you can buy a ticket onboard the tram from the conductor in the back of the tram.
If you plan to use the metro and or tram during your stay, you may consider purchasing an I Amsterdam Card at the Tourist Bureau just outside Amsterdam Central Railway Station, or a refillable transportation card in the underground metro entrance that is cheaper than a one hour ticket.
