Stations: Amsterdam


Stations: Amsterdam
Underground Amsterdam

You hardly need a car in the Netherlands—trains will get you just about anywhere, so most people deal with Dutch stations daily, rain or shine. The system feels like it is calling out to the sun, often missing in the dark cloudy days off the North Sea: Everything is in bright primary colors, yellow and blue and red.

And where trains don’t serve, they connect to the extensive bicycle infrastructure. The rail company, Nederlandse Spoorwegen, even has their own bicycle share program to cover the last kilometer to those small towns without a train station.

Even so, although trains run all day, the stations are only busy at rush hour. The rest of the time, you often find yourself alone on the platform, or riding a nearly-empty train. It’s not bad, really.
