By public transport
From the city centre side of Amsterdam Central Station you can take trams 1, 2 and 5 (stop Leidseplein). There’s a tram leaving every 3 minutes from Central Station. To use public transport in The Netherlands (train, tram, bus), you have to buy an anonymous (disposable) OV-chipkaart or a 24 hour-ticket at the station or on the tram. Be sure to check-in when you enter and check-out when you leave your means of transport.
