Tram line 2 the most beautiful of Amsterdam

If you every day take Tram 2, then maybe it is not so noticeable. But this Amsterdam spree takes you pretty much all the top sights along which is our capital. Put your cell phone away and have a look through the window. Not for nothing did National Geographic Line 2 named one of the best tram rides in the world.

The Amsterdam tram line 2 has been set at December 28 1903 and drives therefore already 112 years by Mokum. The tram runs from the CS via the Dam, Leidsestraat, Willemsparkweg, Koninginneweg, Heemstedestraat and Johan Huizingalaan to the terminus in Nieuw Sloten.

 During your journey you'll see at the Museumplein the Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. Then head over to the Leidseplein with all the conviviality of restaurants, theaters and cinemas to by then drive towards the Royal Palace.

 The route from the Leidseplein to the dam goes through the center of Amsterdam; through the narrow Leidsestraat, along the famous Flower Market, on the Spui and you'll pass many historic buildings. And, do not forget, you cross the road all over canals that together form the canal. The endpoint then the CS.

Tram line 2 drives for over a hundred years through Amsterdam.
