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 line 51, 53 or 54 to Waterlooplein (2nd stop)
you can buy a ticket in the underground station entrance
– take the street tram lines 4 or 14 towards the Rembrandtplein (3rd stop) for which you can buy a ticket from the conductor halfway 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.
