    By public transportation

    COC Netherlands is easy to reach by public transportation. From Central Station, you can take the metro (lines 51, 53 or 54)  to Waterlooplein. Leave the Waterlooplein metro station via the Nieuwe Herengracht/Hermitage exit. COC is about a 5 minute walk from there.

    For further information and advice on travelling by public transportation (options, schedules, etc.), please consult

    By car

    Finding a place to park in the centre of Amsterdam is often very difficult. The closest car parks are “Stadhuis/Muziektheater” (also known as “Stopera”) and “Waterlooplein”.

    From the Ring A10, take exit S-112 or S-116, in the direction of “Centrum” (city centre). Follow the signs marked “P Muziektheater” or “P Waterlooplein”.
