There is a good selection of public transport options from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Amsterdam city centre. The airport train station can be found downstairs from the arrivals hall. Trains to Amsterdam Central (Amsterdam’s most central station) leave regularly and take just 15 minutes. Tickets are available from self-service kiosks before you reach the station platforms.
