  Amsterdam, central station
by tompt

When you come by train you will arive at the central station. This a beautifull building and a good starting point for your trip in Amsterdam. Many trams, metro and busses leave here.

The Central Station is the first station in Netherland that was designed by an architect. Before this it was done by engeniers. The asaignment was given in 1876 to P.J.H. Cuypers and A.L. van Gendt. The design is by Cuypers, and Van Gendt - who had much experience with the railroads - concentrated on the construction.
