Centraal Station - busy, bustling and inhabited by the ubiquitous local drunks and weirdos but they seemed pretty harmless. So... this station is attached to the biggest shopping centre in the Netherlands, Hoog Catherijne. If you miss the exit to the street you could be wandering around a 1970's carbuncle for your entire trip to Utrecht.... god help those who have important appointments... they are probably still wandering round H&M looking for a way out!!

Anyway, about the station... you can get frequent trains to Amsterdam from here and of course other destinations in the Netherlands. Check the web page for more train travel info. (It's in English too!) Oh and about the photo.... yes that's the top of Petra's head!

At the time of writing, a day return ticket cost 11.40E.
