How to get from Amsterdam to Muiderslot Castle with no ferry!

* Versiunea in Romana mai jos!

When we visited Amsterdam, one of the points that we had on the “must to do” list was to visit Muiderslot Castle located about 15-16 km from the city.
“The most beautiful and best Kept medieval castle in the Netherlands” – this is the main description on their official website. But not about the castle itself we will talk today, but about how you get there from Amsterdam. The prices for acces are 15.5 euros / adult and 9 euros for children (4-11 years)  (Unless you have a previously purchased tourist card that includes free admission or a discount).

The first thought was to take the Amsterdam tourist ferry, but these only run between April and October and, being a single race per day, there are limited places. We did not rent the car, so we had to deal with the public transport. What seemed very complicated at first glance was very simple and efficient. The starting point is Amstelstation in Amsterdam where you arrive by subway depending on the departure point in the city. From the bus station, from platform A5 take bus 320  Connexxion company. Tickets are purchased from the driver. The most efficient is to buy a ticket on all Connexxion lines for a day at the price of 7.4 euros. Travel 6 stations and get off at Muiden P + R terrein. From here take bus 110 two stations to Muiden, Centrum (for which the same day ticket purchased in Amstelstation is valid).  From here to the castle there are 950 meters that you will have to walk on foot. But it will be worth it, because Muiden is a small town, very cute and stylish, and the walk through the center to the castle will be a delight. You can even stop at one of the restaurants on the canal and enjoy the view while enjoying a coffee.


De la Amsterdam la Castelul Muiderslot fără feribot..

Cand am vizitat Amsterdam, unul dintre punctele pe care le-am avut pe lista “must to do” a fost sa vizitam Castelul Muiderslot aflat la aproximativ 15-16 km de oras. “Cel mai frumos si cel mai bine pastrat castel medieval in Olanda” – asta este principala descriere pe site-ul lor oficial. Dar nu despre castel in sine o sa va vorbim astazi, ci despre cum ajungi acolo din Amsterdam. Preturile pentru vizitare sunt 15.5 euro/ adult si 9 euro pentru copii (4-11 ani) (Asta daca nu aveti vreun card de turist cumparat deja care sa include intrerea gratuita sau o reducere).

Primul gand a fost sa luam Amsterdam tourist ferry, dar aceste circula doar in perioada aprilie – octombrie si, fiind o singura cursa pe zi sunt locuri limitate. Masina nu am inchiriat, asa ca a trebuit sa ne descurcam cu tranportul in comun. Ceea ce parea foarte complicat la prima vedere s-a dovedit pana la urma foarte simplu si eficient.  Punctul de plecare este Amstelstation in Amsterdam unde ajungeti cu metroul in functie de locul de plecare din oras. Din statia de autobus, de la peronul A5 luati autobuzul 320 compania Connexxion. Biletele se cumpara de la sofer. Cel mai eficient este sa cumparati un abonament pe toate liniile Connexxion pe o zi la pretul de 7.4 euro. Calatoriti 6 statii si coborati la Muiden P+R terrein. De aici luati autobuzul 110 doua statii pana la Muiden, Centrum (pentru care este valabil acelasi bilet de o zi cumparat in Amstelstation) . De aici pana la castel sunt 950 de metri pe care va trebui sa ii parcurgeti mergand pe jos. Dar va merita, pentru ca Muiden este un orasel micut, foarte cochet si dragut, iar plimbarea prin centrul sau pana la castel va fi o incantare. Puteti chiar sa faceti un popas la unul dintre restaurantele de pe malul canalului si sa admirati privelistea in timp ce savurati o cafea…
