This was a great experience, we took the train to Amsterdam, very comfortable, we relaxed for three hours before arriving in the city center of Amsterdam. We arrived quite early so we stored our luggage just outside the central station at lockerpoint in the middle of the city ( In fact you can explore amsterdam by feet because everything is on walking distance. However, it is also great to rent a bike! We definitely go back and will take the train again!
