Arriving by boat

It’s not only the white-bearded Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas) who arrives in The Netherlands by boat. Each year millions of other visitors disembark in Amsterdam from sea and river craft. Considering that the Dutch have been a sea-faring nation for centuries, this is quite an appropriate gateway to the city. So how should you proceed into the city, once you’ve come down the gangplank?

Passenger Terminal Amsterdam
The striking building, with an undulating wave-like roof, has all the conveniences of a modern port – with a 600-metre-long quay, large reception halls, a touring car terminal, offices, a convention centre and underground parking. Yet it’s serene and the glass façade has a magnificent view of the IJ-harbour and the city center. The PTA is a pleasant 15 minute walk along the waterside from Amsterdam’s Centraal Station. But if you are in a hurry the day your ship comes in, then take either Tram 26 from opposite the Muziekgebouw – located just to the right of the PTA – or Tram 25 – located to the left of the PTA. Alternatively, if you’re laden down with luggage, opt for a taxi from outside the building.

DFDS Seaways Ferry from Newcastle to IJmuiden

Felison Terminal at the port of IJmuiden on the outskirts of Amsterdam is an ideal gateway to The Netherlands, especially from Scotland and the North-East of England. Two DFDS Seaways Cruise Ferries serve this port on a daily basis from Newcastle. It’s very quick and easy to reach Amsterdam from Ijmuiden, and you can do so by car, bus, fast flying ferry and taxi.

Stena Line Ferry from Harwich to Hoek van Holland

Stena Line operates a ferry twice daily (day and overnight service) from Harwich to Hoek van Holland (Hook of Holland). From there it’s easy to reach Amsterdam by car or train.

P&O from Hull to Rotterdam
