Amsterdam Central Station

Amsterdam Central Station is the hub of city. It faces the center of town, and all the top attractions are within easy reach by public transport — bus, tram, and metro. Some sights are actually within walking distance

The taxi rank is at the back of the station. Upstairs — on the same level as the train tracks — is a bus terminal that provides fantastic panoramic views of the river IJ. The blue and white ferries you see there will ferry you across the river for free.

Updated ever so slightly to note why some Turks have taken to attacking oranges. Yes, oranges.
