Ferry routes in Amsterdam


The most popular and best-served ferry route is from Amsterdam Central Station to Buiksloterweg (ideal for attractions such as the EYE Filmmuseum and Tolhuistuin). A number of ferries operate on this short route meaning you rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to step aboard (a countdown clock displaying the destination and remaining time until the next departure is shown above each docking spot). This route is also served throughout the night. Ferry services across the IJ are free - you don't need to buy a ticket before boarding.
