This place is simply huge. The outside is just beautiful, such a great building and worth a few photos. However inside, it’s easy to get lost and trains come quick, make sure you know where you are going and leave yourself enough time.

We used the metro every day in Amsterdam. We purchased the 72 hour GVB ticket which works out to save you a lot of money if like us you are staying outside central Amsterdam. The building is beautiful and it's easy to find the place for your metro/train. My only complaint is that the shop near the platform for number 53 only takes cash or another form of pay using your phone. As we had no cash on us we couldn't purchase anything and sadly there are no ATM's in the station.

First off, this building is so gorgeous! I stood outside and just looked at it! The different colors of all the stones really made my pictures beautiful. I also liked how close it was to the water and made finding the center of town easier. It was also well kept and clean.
