8 Tips for Driving and Parking in Amsterdam
Due to Amsterdam’s skinny, winding streets, driving in the city center is notoriously tricky. Here are a few tips to navigate through the Dutch capital.
- Always watch for bicycle riders. Amsterdam is considered the most bicycle-friendly capital city in the world, so bikers are everything. They always have the right of way.
- Drive on the right side of the canal. All streets in the canal ring are one-way on the right side.
- Be prepared to wait behind unloading trucks. As much of a hassle as it is, this is custom in the city. You should not have to wait longer than 10 minutes.
- Treat an intersection without traffic signs as a four-way stop.
- When it comes to parking, make sure you have exact change since they do not give change.
- Take note of your license plate, since some machines will ask you for it.
- Never leave any valuables in your car, because break-ins are not uncommon.
- If you are ticketed, you have 24 hours to pay the fine or you will be towed. Call parking control (Parkeerbeheer) at 020-251-3322 for any questions or if towed.
