Getting to the Trippenhuis
Regretfully, the facade of the Trippenhuis is currently under restoration. Therefore you will find
the whole facade covered by scaffolds instead of finding the beautiful and imposing facade shown in the picture above.
the only really viable way to get to the Trippenhuis is to walk. Note (from map) that the
Trippenuis is very close to NH Doelen Hotel, and relatively close to Albus Grand Hotel. From NH Doelen hotel: turn left around the
corner of Nieuwe Doelenstraat, onto the Kloveniersburgwal. Follow the canal until you 3rd bridge, with the Trippenhuis on the
righthand bank of the canal. From Albus Grand Hotel first proceed along the Vijzelstraat towards the Muntplein, turn into Nieuwe
Doelenstraat, directly followed by Kloveniersburgwal on the left.
From Central Railway Station, walking:
It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the station to the Trippenhuis. The advised route is to first walk along the Damrak
towards the Dam (Palace on the Dam, the Monument, the Nieuwe Kerk). Turn left into the Damstraat. The first canal you will cross
is the Oudezijds Voorburgwal, proceed straight ahead along the Oude Hoogstraat. The next canal is the Kloveniersburgwal. Cross
the bridge, turn left and after a few dozen meters you stand in front of the Trippenhuis.
From Central Railway Station, metro:
From NS Station Amsterdam CS you can also reach the Trippenhuis by metro. Take line
51 (to Westwijk), 54 (to Gein) or 53 (to Gaasperplas). Get off at the first metro station after Central Station,
ie. Nieuwmarkt (exit: Nieuwmarkt or Nieuwe Hoogstraat). From the Nieuwmarkt you walk directly south along the
Kloveniersburgwal and will soon stand in front of the Trippenhuis.
