Walk! Walking Review

Amsterdam has quite a big centre, but most of the places the average (and even not-so average) tourists will want to go to are within walking distance from each other. You can use public transport, but if you stay in the centre in many cases you might as well walk. I don't recommend renting a bike if you're not used to riding in a crowded city; Amsterdam is a mess! Only rent a bike when you want to see something of the surrounding area.

To Amsterdam by car Car & Parking Review

Going to Amsterdam by car? Yes, it can be done. Only make sure you don't get into the centre with your vehicle. Once you're in it may take you hours to get out again, if you don't know your way around. And don't even try to find a parking place. For 5,50 euros you can park your car in the Amsterdam Arena parking garage, next to the football stadium. You can leave it there for 24 hours. Then go to the information post and ask for the cheaper public transport rate. They will give you up to two tickets that allow you to use public transport to the centre and back. Use these tickets properly (it's hardly any use staying in this part of the city anyway, unless you want to see the Ajax footballmuseum *YAWN* ) otherwise you will pay 14,50 euros.
