Commuting by ferry in Amsterdam
Since a month I work in Amsterdam-Noord, the neighbourhood at the other side of the IJ river. To get there by bike you either have to go all the way to the East side and cross two big bridges, or you take a ferry. Since March there is a new ferry at Java-eiland (the ‘Oostveer’ at Azartplein). I love it. You don’t have to cross the busy city centre and you have a great view over the water. It is actually quite relaxing after a day of hard work or after baby rush hour in the morning.
This is what it looks like when the ferry arrives:
- Curious what it is to take one of the other ferries? Read the post by Else: Living in Amsterdam Noord
- Want to try the ‘Oostveer’? Check out the ferry timetable, it goes only three times per hour
