Did you buy your train ticket? Be ready for my favorite building in Amsterdam. The majestic, Amsterdam Central Station. Every day thousands of people are traveling via this masterpiece of architecture. We will see how people travel to the station, by foot, bike, bus, tram, ferry or by the new metro under the old station. Get lost between thousands of bicycles, get a glimpse of the special entrance for our Royals, and see the modern trains entering the station on their way to London and Paris. I will show you the beauty of the station, the first-class waiting rooms and share the story about the famous Victoria hotel opposite the station. And if we are lucky we can meet the most famous bird of the station, named Elvis Don't miss this train :-)
Stephan is a real Dutchie, he was born in Delft (the city of Vermeer), grown up in Gouda (the cheese city), studied in Leiden (city of Rembrandt) and he lived in Rotterdam (the harbour city) before moving to our capital Amsterdam in 2006. After a career in technology as an Online Strategist, he decided to leave behind the corporate world to start guiding visitors of Amsterdam and started his own private tour agency, Amsterdam Experiences. That’s when he discovered that walking and cycling around the city with international visitors is a lot more fun than a desk job! As a guide, Stephan loves to show his virtual guests the hidden gems of Amsterdam through the eyes of a local. He has a passion for telling stories about Dutch history and culture. Stephan is very enthusiastic about the Netherlands and also guides tours in Delft, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Gouda, Leiden and Den Hague. Stephan’s tours cover a wide range of topics, whether that be sensitively tackling difficult subjects, such as Anne Frank and Jewish history of Amsterdam. However, he is equally comfortable being spontaneous, whether visiting goats in a goat farm to riding his orange flowerbike around with the flowerbike man himself. Stephan also now has tours in Belgium, covering Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent. So join him on the bike or by foot, and see the highlights of the Netherlands or even perhaps Belgium.

Not my favorite topic.

Train stations can be pretty boring when you’re commuting or traveling. But Stephan brings them alive. History architecture art and it is just a train station. But the tunnel mural and the bike racks and the old waiting rooms along with music. Oh and o course actual trains. Just fun

Hello Stephan. It’s was fun hanging out in Amsterdam with you as I was sitting in Toronto, Canada. Who would have thought a subway station could be so interesting and full of history. Thanks for making it come alive. Barb
