accessibility by public transport

EYE is located directly opposite Amsterdam’s Central Station. After arriving at Central Station, take the exit on the north side, from where you can see the EYE building. From there, take the free shuttle ferry to ‘Buiksloterweg’ across the IJ harbour.


shuttle ferry
From Amsterdam’s Central Station, a free shuttle ferry that runs 24 hours a day will take you to the other side of the IJ harbour to ‘Buiksloterweg’. The ferry ride only takes three minutes. If you are travelling from Central Station, this ferry will be located on one of the two middle pontoons. When you get off the ferry in Amsterdam Noord, turn left immediately and then walk three minutes to EYE.


From Amsterdam Noord, bus 38 stops at the ‘Buiksloterwegveer’ stop (until 8PM, and beginning at 11AM on Sundays); this stop is right next to EYE. In addition, bus 105 (not on Sundays) and bus 109 (not in the evenings or on weekends) both stop at ‘Hagedoornplein’, which is a 12-minute walk from EYE.

car route and parking

navigation system
Enter the address Overhoeksplein 1 in your GPS-system, at the end of the Bercylaan you will find the entrance to the parking garage next to the A'DAM Tower.


car route
EYE can be reached through the IJ Tunnel or the A10 Circular Road (Ringweg A10). Travelling on either of these two you continue as follows:

  • On the S116 take the exit in the direction of the S118 over Johan van Hasseltweg;
  • turn left into Mosplein after the traffic lights;
  • take the third exit on the roundabout – Hagendoornweg. (On the days there is no street market, you can also take the second exit to Van der Pekstraat: continue to 6);
  • on Hagendoornweg take the fourth exit on your right (just before the church on the left, near the sign ‘bootdienst’ (ferry service)). This will take you to Meidoornweg;
  • turn left at the end of Meidoornweg and take the first road on your right in the direction of Van der Pekbrug;
  • follow this road and you will reach the car park, which is located between EYE and A'DAM Tower;
  • after parking your car you will need to exit the car park via the entrance you used.

Note: The car park may be temporarily difficult to access due to construction work. Please follow the signage provided, so that you will not be unnecessarily detained.


disabled parking places
Amsterdam's municipality has passed on instructions to EYE that holders of parking permits for disabled persons have to park in the parking garage next to the A'DAM Tower. It is no longer permitted to park behind EYE, even with a parking permit showing. EYE very much regrets this situation.

You can arrange for a wheelchair in advance at the EYE front desk: please mail us at, mentioning the time and date you wish to visit.


The car park is not accessible to buses. Buses can stop at Café de Pont via Buiksloterweg to let their passengers off.
