Central Station

The metro station is being renovated in phases so that the metro continues to be in service as much as possible. The metro will be in service on the normal timetable through to the end of March 2017.

The metro station is accessible via the Stationsplein entrance.

5 March through to 31 March

Starting on 5 March, the stairs next to the GVB Tickets & Info counter, VVV tourist store and the Loetje restaurant will be closed. At this time, the elevator at this entrance will go from the Stationsplein directly to the platform and vice versa.
NOTE: This measure has been postponed for an undetermined period of time! The stairs will continue to be available for use and the elevator will stop at the intermediate hall.

This means that you will need to ensure you have a valid ticket or OV-chipkaart before you step into the elevator. You can purchase a travel product at the GVB Tickets & Info counter in the Stationsplein or in the central hall of Central Station (next to the GVB vending machines behind the piano in the central hall).

Entrance closed

The following entrances are currently closed: 

  • Open Havenfront (open again on 31 March)
  • Prins Hendrikkade (open again on 31 March)
  • Oosterdokskade
  • Geldersekade (permanently closed)

Transport type

As of April 2017, there will be times when the timetable can change. Routes will be shortened or you will need to transfer. We will provide this information when it is available.
