Netherlands By Bike


Schiphol to Amsterdam

About This Tour...

Arriving at the Magere Bridge with option to Amsterdam Centraal Station

A very scenic bike ride once you leave the airport region and travel through Amsterdamse Bos (forested park), and then along a lovely bike path in Amsterdam Zuid to the Amstel River. From here, enjoy a gradual introduction to the city of Amsterdam as you travel along the Amstel to the canal district and the Magere Bridge. This is the perfect opportunity to venture into the historic canal district located on the opposite side of the bridge. The streets are narrow and more congested from this point, so cycle accordingly!
If looking to continue on to Centraal Station or the free GVB ferry across the IJ, be sure to see the companion route which will take you through more interesting neighborhoods and eventually to a scenic area around the large and expansive boat docks near the Nemo Science Museum.
