The OV-chipcard is the only way to access the public transport in Amsterdam. If you do not have an OV-chipcard, you can buy a valid ticket at the GVB Tickets&Info locations, dispensers in the metro stations, or at www.gvb.nl
or in the GVB app (www.gvb.nl/GVB-app
). On Thursday 14, Friday 15 and Saturday 16 October you can also buy a public transport ticket at the GVB booth on the square in front of the Olympic Stadium.Train
The Olympic Stadium is within walking distance of Amsterdam Zuid station. Just follow the signs. Make sure to check the NS Reisplanner
for actual depart- and arrival times. On weekends, work is regularly done on the train track. The work on the train track can be viewed on the NS Reisplanner
10 days before the travel date. Check your trip again shortly before departure for the most up-to-date advice.
Are you coming from the direction of Flevoland, Utrecht, Leiden or Schiphol
? Then travel by train to Amsterdam Zuid station. From there you continue with Metro 50 in the direction of 'Isolatorweg' (departs every 10 minutes). Get off at the 'Amstelveenseweg' stop. Or follow the walking route from Amsterdam Zuid station to the Olympic Stadium.

Do not forget to bring your OV chip card with you with sufficient credit. Don't have an OV chip card yet? You can purchase a personal OV-chipkaart via NS.nl/ovchipkaart
or buy an anonymous OV-chipkaart at the station. Avoid long waiting times at the ticket machine by charging your balance on time.
Tip! You can also buy your ticket online in advance, so you don't have to queue on the day itself. You can do this in the NS ticket shop. This prevents long queues at the machines.Bike
