USEFUL INFORMATION

Skatepark is open 12:00 to 21:00 during the week prior of the event

Locations
Contest: Skatepark Amsterdam – TT Neveritaweg 15a, 1033WB Amsterdam, NDSM terrein
Marnix Bowl: 111 Marnixstraat, Amsterdam

Directions
Fly to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam (AMS). Take the train from the station inside to the airport to Centraal Station (about 15 minutes and 4 Euros). Once at the station, exit the rear doors of the station and head towards the water. Once you arrive at the only street, go left and walk down to the blue ferryboats. The boats are free and you will want to take the last boat on the left, next to the benches. Once arriving on the other side, the skatepark is straight ahead and to the right, in the old industrial area (shipyard, NDSM building).

Hotels in Amsterdam tend to be expensive and hard to find at the last minute. If you are planning on coming, take a look at booking.com and get a leg up on reserving a room!

Generally you will want to be in or around the Centraal Station. If not, be aware when you make the reservation and verify the location of the hotel. Otherwise it could be a big surprise!

There is a Botel (Boat+Hotel=Botel) right next to the Park if you want to stay right there.

KLM and Transavia are both Dutch airline companies who have many flights in and out per day to most countries.
