The Best Amsterdam Tram Guide For Tourists The idea for the best Amsterdam tram guide for tourists was to make a simple one page guide that would get most tourists to and from the top 10 tourists sites. This guide and the Best Amsterdam Tram Map For Tourists were designed to be printed out on a double sided sheet of a paper. With one sheet of paper you could navigate to any of the top 10 Amsterdam sites without ever getting lost. Spend more time enjoying Amsterdam, and less time being lost. The chart below will tell you exactly how

Best Tram To Take To Amsterdam Sites While you can get to almost everything in Amsterdam by Tram, there are a few places that trams don’t serve. Both Amsterdam Arena & Amsterdam RAI Convention Center are easily reached by Metro as opposed to Trams. For most of the other sites and attractions in Amsterdam, you can probably use a tram to get there. However you can’t use the same tram to get everywhere. And there are 14 Tram Lines to choose from, and they are not numbered 1-14. Different Tram lines serve different areas of the city, hence different sites

Amsterdam GVB Tram Guide 2019 The Amsterdam Tram Network is run by GVB and consists of 14 different tram lines. Using the tram lines you can get almost anywhere in Amsterdam’s canal area and much of it’s suburbs. However tram travel comes with a price, it is slow and it stops quite often. But slow and steady wins the race, and the trams will always get you where you want to go eventually. The Amsterdam GVB Trams Guide is an attempt to make all the tram info a tourist needs available in one place. Each tram line and metro line

Amsterdam Tram 1 Map – GVB Lijn 1 Lijnkaart – 2019 Amsterdam Tram 1 – Tram 1 now runs east to west across Amsterdam.  It no longer stops at central station and has a completely different route. Sites: Muiderpoort Station, Leidseplein Comments: Tram 1 basically slices the rings in half. So if you get tired walking from the edge of the rings Tram 1 will get you back to Centraal. Dutch Food To Try – Saucijzenbroodje – These sausage in flaky pastry treats are in every supermarket and convenience store. They never cost more than 1 euro and are often

Amsterdam Tram 2 Map – GVB Lijn 2 Lijnkaart – 2019 Amsterdam Tram 2 – Tram 2 follows the same route as Tram 12, but heads to Amsterdam South after Rijksmuseum stop. It is very similar to Tram 12 for the tourist as Tram 2 & Tram 12 follow the same path from Centraal Station to the Museums. Tram 2 does not stop at Museumplein or Concertgebouw, but stops at a station very close to it (Van Baerlestraat). VondelPark is on the Tram 2 route. Sites: Centraal Station, Dam Square, Palace, Spui, Flower Market, Leidseplein, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Museumplein

Amsterdam Tram 3 Map – GVB Lijn 3 Lijnkaart – 2019 Amsterdam Tram 3 – Tram 3 is not really a tourist tram. It runs in a horseshoe shape outside the canal rings.  There really isn’t a great reason for the typical tourist to use Tram 3 other than Westerpark, as Tram 3 gets closest to it. Sites: Westerpark, Museumplein, Concertgebouw Comments: Only tourists with accommodations along the Tram 3 path or Westerpark visitors should use Tram 3. If you needed to take a path around the ring of Amsterdam you would most likely use Tram 10 which is closer

It runs along the west side of the Amstel River. You will probably find yourself on Tram 4 or Tram 9 at some point during your Amsterdam stay. Sites: Centraal Station, Dam Square, Palace, Spui, Rembrandtplein, Albert Cuyp Market (Stadhouderskade Station) Comments – In addition to Tram 24, Tram 4 is one of the ways to get to Albert Cuyp Market from Centraal or Dam

Amsterdam Tram 7 Map – GVB Lijn 7 Lijnkaart Amsterdam Tram 7 – Tram 7 is not a typical tourist tram, but it can be used from crossing east to west or west to east once in awhile.

Sites: Leidseplein, Weteringcircuit (Heineken Factory is a short walk) Comments: If traveling to the Heineken Factory from Centraal or Dam Square use Tram 24 and take the stop after Weteringcircuit, just over the river and next to the factory.
