Walk from Amsterdam Central Station

Amsterdam Central Station is on walking distance from our boat rental. It is about a 15-minute walk. We’ll explain the route. At Amsterdam Central Station, first take the exit at the stationsplein. Then walk right along the station square until you reach the Melkmarktsbrug (Western Entrance Bridge). Cross the bridge and turn right towards the Prins Hendrikkade. Keep walking straight ahead until you pass Nieuwe Westerdoksstraat and then Haarlemmer Houttuinen. At the end of the Haarlemmer Houttuinen, turn right towards the Grote Bickersstraat. Here you walk through the tunnel. Keep walking straight ahead. After The Grote Bickerstraat you have the Zandhoek. Eco Boats Amsterdam is on your right side at Zandhoek 22.

By car: park your car here

We advise you to drive to the parking garage Interparking IJdok or Willemspoort and park your car there. This is much cheaper than parking on the street and it is only an 8 minute walk to our boat rental. Would you like to combine boating with a day in Amsterdam? Then this is also a very convenient place to park your car thanks to its central location. It is within walking distance of the canals, Amsterdam Central Station and many other attractions. The address of the IJdok car park is IJdok 33, 1013 MM Amsterdam and the address of the Willemspoort car park is Haarlemmer Houttuinen 549, 1013 GM Amsterdam.

You can also park via ParkBee. This is a website where several parking garages are affiliated in Amsterdam and where you can park at a discounted rate at various locations in the city.

By public transport

Are you coming from Central Station Amsterdam? Then take bus 48 in the direction of the Houthavens and get off at stop Barendszplein. The bus ride takes only about 3 minutes. Cross over to Barendszplein and after the buildings turn left to Bokkinghangen. Walk 60 metres straight ahead and across the bridge you will find Eco Boats Amsterdam. Bus 18 and 21 also both leave from Amsterdam Central Station. Get off at the Buiten Oranjestraat stop. This is a 5 minute walk to our boat rental.
