Station to be proud of....north side is new and modern facing the ij...south side is a monument facing the old town and gives way to the city centre. Very good organised and easy to find your way.

Clearly signposted for all your travel yet, at the same time, architecturally beautiful to behold. Staff utterly fab and easy to approach. Great place.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yes you can do individual journeys and pay the driver, or get 24/48 hour pass which is cheaper. Great way to get around main sites of Amsterdam!
