How do I travel between the different concerts on Thursday?

The concerts on Thursday are spread across the Bimhuis, Tolhuistuin, Shelter, Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ and EYE Filminstituut. Dekmantel and the City of Amsterdam will provide free ferries between locations. Take in account the following transfer times:

  • Muziekgebouw to Bimhuis = 1 minutes.
  • Travel between Tolhuistuin, Shelter, and EYE = 3 minutes.
  • Tolhuistuin/Shelter/EYE to Muziekgebouw/Bimhuis = 30/40 minutes. For this trip we provide free (extra) ferry rides.

Tolhuistuin, Shelter and EYE Filmmuseum:
These three venues are very close to each other, and both very easily recognizable. They're located directly opposite Amsterdam’s Central Station. After arriving at Central Station, take the exit on the north side, from where you can see the EYE Film Institute, Shelter and Tolhuistuin signpost. From there, take the free ‘Buiksloterweg’ ferry across the IJ harbour.

From Amsterdam’s Central Station, a free ferry that runs 24 hours a day will take you to the other side of the IJ harbour. Make sure to take the ferry that is labelled ‘Buiksloterweg’. The ferry ride takes 3 minutes and will be located on one of the two middle pontoons. When you get off the ferry in Amsterdam Noord, turn left immediately - it's about three minutes to each location. Please mind that the entrance for Tolhuistuin is located at the back of the building. 

By Dekmantel Ferry
We have free ferries available, leaving from Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ/Bimhuis to Tolhuistuin/Shelter/EYE Filmmuseum. Drop on location is located at Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ.

Ferry times:
The Amsterdam city ferry to Buiksloterweg will leave every 5 minutes. The Dekmantel ferries between Muziekgebouw and EYE leave every 20 minutes. 

From Amsterdam Noord, bus 38 stops at the ‘Buiksloterwegveer’ stop (until 20:00 during evenings, and beginning at 11:00 on Sundays); this stop is right next to Tolhuistuin, Shelter and EYE. In addition, bus 105 (not on Sundays) and bus 109 (not in the evenings, and not on weekends) both stop at ‘Hagedoornplein’, which is a 12-minute walk from the.

Bimhuis and Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ

These two venues are adjacent and there are multiple ways of reaching them.

From Central Station
You can easily reach them by train if you're coming from other cities in the Netherlands or abroad. From the northern exit of the Central Station, the venues' typical architecture can be seen at a distance of approximately one kilometer, eastwards on the IJ. It's a 10 minute walk from the back side of the station (Noord). Go to the right and walk along the water. Walk up the bridge and you will find the Bimhuis/Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ on you left hand side where you can take the passengers bridge to the entrance. In short: out of the station (Noord), to the right and up the bridge.

By tram
Line 26 Centraal Station / IJburg also stops directly in front of the venues (the stop is called Muziekgebouw / Bimhuis and is the first stop coming from Central Station direction IJburg).
Please note that during the night, nightbusses will be your only means of public transportation. In the case of the Muziekgebouw/Bimhuis, there's NightBus 359 Centraal Station/IJburg (stop J. Schaeferbrug, direction Central Station) to get you back to Central Station (where practically all night busses go through).
