Amsterdam Quantum Logic Workshop 2015

Practical info

We have gathered some practical information for you hoping to make your stay a bit easier. First of all; how to get from the airport into the city center.

Secondly; the hotel information.


I. From the airport into town:


Below you find the information provided by the airport with regard to transportation into the city center. You can also find this on their website:


Option 1, by train

The train offers a reliable mode of transportation. One can buy tickets either at the ticket desk on the arrivals level or at the yellow machines using Euro coins or credit/debit cards. The direct trains to Amsterdam Central station run every 10 to 15 minutes between 6:00 AM and 12:30 AM and the trip takes about 15 to 20 minutes. These trains leave from platforms 1, 2 or 3, which are all one floor below the airport terminal. Using a train will cost you about €4,- when travelling second class.


Option 2, taxi

Taxis also provide transportation from the airport to Amsterdam city centre. Using a taxi is convenient especially if you are travelling with a lot of luggage as they offer door-to-door services and a trip to the city takes only 20 minutes if it is not rush hour. However, this is the most expensive mode of transportation and a traveler risks sitting in heavy traffic during rushhour. The costs are around €50,- depending on the route and destination. There are plenty of taxis just outside the main entrance to arrivals level.

Travelers are advised to choose a taxi from the line and not from random individuals claiming to offer this service.
