Central Station (Centraal Station) : Michelin's recommendations

The central station, a spectacular neo-Renaissance building, rests on three artificial islands and 8700 piles. Its facade of red and white bricks is visible from the Damrak. When work began in 1881 there was an outcry in Amsterdam, because the architects, Cuypers and van Gendt, had decided, against public opinion, to close off Amsterdam's access to the river IJ (in other words to deprive the city of its sea-front). It took eight years to complete.
