Transport in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is not big in size, and you can easily get to the main sights by walking. Or rent a bike. Otherwise you can use the tram or bus from the GVB (municipal transport company). A single ticket costs 2,90 Euro, and allows you one hour of travel time, where ever you go. In the tram or bus you can also buy a 24 or 48 hours ticket for 7.50 or 12 Euro.

Around the corner of our home you can take tram 2 into the center. This tram route is a real sight seeing trip on itself ! Click here to see the complete route.
Buy museum tickets ahead
Usually there are long queues in front of the museums. Therefore it is better to buy tickets ahead, on the internet. To do so, and to see what you can visit, click here to visit tiqets.com. If you arrive at the museum with a prepaid ticket, most of the time you can use the Fast Lane.

Renting a bike
In Amsterdam the best way to go from A to B is cycling. Almost everybody in Amsterdam has one or more bikes. There are many places where to rent a bike.
