Amsterdam Centraal Station is well named. The train terminal is located on three artificial islands at the edge of Amsterdam-Centrum. The historic intercity is only five miles square. So, discovering the sites on foot is easy. This exquisite Neo-Renaissance building was created by Pierre Cuypers in 1889. He is the same architect responsible for Rijksmuseum. Cuypers had a unique talent for blending Flemish, Dutch, English and French architectural elements.
