The city’s cultural scene is bustling, ensuring visitors can have both a memorable meeting and great experiences after business hours. And transport is straight-forward and convenient, whether it’s by taxitraintrammetrobusferry, bike or on foot, so journeys are short, pleasant and enlightening for guests from the Netherlands or beyond.

Amsterdam’s connectivity is one of the major reasons why it’s the perfect location to host your meeting. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of Europe’s four major hubs, operating to more than 300 direct destinations, with exceptional public transport connections to the city – 20 minutes or less to the city centre – and a taxi fleet that is 100% electric.
