By car:

There are several ways to get to the city center when coming from outside Amsterdam. When you enter the Ring (A10), we recommend to take the northern exit S116 Noord towards the IJ-tunnel. Exiting the tunnel, you take a right at the Prins Hendrikkade, drive past the Central Station and turn left at the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. After 200 meters there's a parking garage at the Nieuwezijds Kolk, from which it's a 5 minute walk to our store. Walking down the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal heading towards the city center, the Paleisstraat is at your right after the Albert Heijn supermarket behind the Royal Palace. When taking alternative routes, bear in mind that traffic can be different from what city maps suggest, and parking spots on the canals are not only expensive but also rather hard to find.

By public transport (tram):

From the Central Station you can take a number of trams which will get you to our store. You can either take tram lines 1,2 or 5, which will go into the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. Exit at the third stop (Magna Plaza behind the Dam square) and continue walking in the same direction, and enter the Paleisstraat, the first street on your right, past the Royal Palace and the Albert Heijn supermarket. Alternatively you can take trams 4, 9, 16, 24 and 25, exit at the first stop (Damrak), and walk towards the Dam square. When facing the Royal Palace, there are two small streets on both sides of the Palace. The one on your left is the Paleisstraat, our shop is across the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal.
