Getting there

Schiphol airport - Amsterdam Central Station

To get to Amsterdam Central Station from Schiphol airport, the easiest (and cheapest!) way is to take a train. Trains depart from Schiphol to Central Station every 10-15 minutes from platforms 1/2. The train-trip takes 19 minutes.

Amsterdam Central Station - The summer school location

From Amsterdam Central Station, take metro line 51, 53, or 54. Get off at "Weesperplein" and walk east along the "Sarphatistraat" (about 400 meters) until you see an "Albert Heijn" supermarket on your left-hand side. After you pass the supermarket, take the first left into the "Korte ’s Gravensandestraat" and follow the path to the right. The building will then be in front of you.

The address is Valckenierstraat 65-67, 1018 XE, Amsterdam.
