How to get there?https://goo.gl/maps/EeVG1xaBtJ52

Onboard.Amsterdam 2018 takes place at De Kromhouthal, Gedempt Hamerkanaal 231, 1021 KP Amsterdam

By public transport: Take the Bus/Metro/Tram or Train to Amsterdam Central Station. Then take the Metro 52 that goes every 6 minutes to Noorderpark (the first stop), after getting off the Metro you walk 10 minutes to De Kromhouthal. The full journey takes around 14 minutes.

By car / Uber: Just a 15-minute ride from Amsterdam Central Station, or 24 minutes from Amsterdam Schipol Airport. We’d advise getting to the venue early if you’re driving as there are approximately 500 free parking spaces available at Draka terrain next to The Kromhouthal—first come, first serve.

By bike: After biking to Amsterdam Central Station, you take the pond to IJplein that goes every 8 minutes and after that bike 3 minutes to De Kromhouthal.
