A handsome red-brick building, the former Haarlemmermeer Station is now the starting point for the tram museum, which is not a static experience but a chance to ride on a gleaming selection of historic European trams that run between here and Amstelveen. A return trip takes about 1¼ hours and skirts the large Amsterdamse Bos recreational area. The tram departs two to three times per hour; see the website for details.

Haarlemmermeer Station is southwest of Vondelpark and just north of the Olympic Stadium.
