How to access the Marineterrein

Within walking distance from Amsterdam CS

It takes about fifteen minutes to walk to the Marineterrein from Amsterdam Central Station. 

Or take tram 26 towards IJburg and get out at the Muziekgebouw. Follow the stairs down and then turn left, walk down the Dijksgracht and turn right to cross the bridge towards the Marineterrein. 

Bus 43 towards Borneo Eiland takes you to the gate of the Marineterrein. Get out at Kattenburgerstraat.

Getting around the Marineterrein 

The buildings at the Marineterrein are numbered. There are no street names. For that reason it is important to know which building number you need before arrival. This map can help.

Digital touch screens located at the Marineterrein can also help you find your way. The screen shows the fastest route.
