The Allard Pierson is situated in Amsterdam Centre

Public transport

From Central Station by tram 4, 9 or 24 (alight at Spui), and by metro (Rokin Station).

By car

Parking is available at a number of carparks in the vicinity of the Allard Pierson: Kalverstraat carpark (Kalverstraatsingel 451C), Bijenkorf carpark (Beursstraat 15) and Muziektheater carpark (Waterlooplein 28). For further information on carparks in the centre of Amsterdam, click here.

If you are arriving from Wibautstraat/Weesperstraat or the IJ Tunnel, the easiest is Muziektheater carpark. Then it’s a five-minute walk via Staalstraat, one of Amsterdam’s most attractive little streets, to the Oude Turfmarkt. If you are arriving from a westerly direction, the carpark on Singel, opposite the Flower Market, is also an option. You are then close to Munt, two minutes on foot from the Allard Pierson.

Loading and unloading

Loading and unloading are permitted up to 11 am on the Oude Turfmarkt. After 11 am loading and unloading must be notified in advance.
