Southwest of Vondelpark and just north of the Olympic Stadium is the former Haarlemmermeer Station. This handsome red-brick building is now the starting point for the tram museum, 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. There's also a tourist tram, which tours the city on Sunday July to September.
The tram departs two to three times per hour; see the website for details.
