CENTRAAL STATION - CENTRAL STATION
Petit Futé's opinion on CENTRAAL STATION - CENTRAL STATION
Amsterdam's Central Station is a symbol of the city. In recent years, it has been eaten away by very important works for the construction of a metro line and a new bus station, but remains visible from the outside. It was built between 1881 and 1889 according to the plans of P. H. Cuypers, who also designed the Rijksmuseum, which was opened in 1885 and is very similar to it. It is also the first Dutch station to be designed by a famous architect. The station was installed on 3 artificial islands with almost 9,000 stilts. This closed the port but prevented the railway lines from crossing the city. The two towers in the station were intended to make it a new gateway to the city. The station quickly proved to be too small and many additions (1922 and 1997) have been made since its construction. She is currently undergoing a major transformation and is gradually revealing her new face! Don't miss the floating bicycle garage, on the right as you leave the station. The new bicycle tunnel with its Delft tiles is worth a visit. The rear part of the once very underdeveloped station is now a real gateway to the city's northern districts with the shared space, a new space for traffic without fire. The new shopping malls, including the Lil' Amsterdam in the east, are worth a visit. Currently, it is the city side of the station that is being redesigned and rebuilt.
