Abroad, yet easy to reach
It is quite easy to travel to Amsterdam with a group.The capital of the Netherlands is located in the midst of the European megalopolis, therefore benefiting from the dense transportation network of Benelux. All roads are open, no matter if you prefer to fly, to take the train or to drive!
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is located roughly 20 kms South-West of the city. As it is the city's biggest airport and the 4th largest in Europe, it is quite easy to find a flight to Amsterdam! From the airport, you can reach the centre by train, the fastest and cheapest solution (3,20 €) compared to roughly 40 € by cab; but you can also take the bus.
Taking the train is obviously a very good alternative. Thalys lines allow you to reach Brussels and Amsterdam from Pais in just a few hours (3h15 for the fastest trips) and you arrive straight to the heart of the city.
Hotels for all types of groups and budgets
The city centre is curling up inside a series of concentric canals. This ancient part of town encompasses many tourists favorites, such as the Royal Palace, the Dam square or the fiendish "Red district". Farther from the centre, you will find the Canal Ring (Herengracht, Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht, Canal Singel) with its flower market, its cafés, its many-colored houses and its design shops. The South-West is home to the museums (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum…), while the Western part harbors the Jordaan district, a former working-class district now displaying galleries, original shops and bars. In the South, Vondelpark is the city's biggest park and is much-appreciated for its peace and quiet. Zuidas is the new business centre, also located in the South. Groupcorner offers you the right accommodation in Amsterdam, whatever your budget. Here are three examples:
The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Center is a 4 star hotel in the centre, close to the central station. With its 270 rooms, this hotel is a perfect fit for groups who come to Amsterdam by train and wish to enjoy the attractions of the city.

The Northern Venice
Amsterdam is a fascinating city; it is among the most pleasant places in Europe, despite its damp weather. It has been nicknamed "the Northern Venice" thanks to its numerous canals, which represent one of its best attractions. To enjoy the city like the locals, rent a bike and let them guide you in this European capital of biking. But at the same time, you should know that Amsterdam also has a fiendish reputation, being home to the "Red district" and coffee shops...
An original and pedagogical destination!
Very few visitors can claim that they travel to Amsterdam in order to practice their Dutch; however, the city boasts important pedagogical assets. From an artistic point of view, the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum rank among the most popular museums worldwide, displaying different generations of great Flemish painters. Besides, Anne Franck's House is a moving illustration of the horrors of World War II. Amsterdam also offers outdoor activities such as sand yachting or flying in a hot-air balloon for the first time.
Trade fairs and original team building sessions for business groups
Organizing a residential seminar abroad is an opportunity to bring the team members together with unusual activities, or to get in touch with the latest evolutions in your field. Amsterdam is not just a landmark for tourists, it is also an economic one. With its large business centre and its event centre (Europaplein) showcasing international events all year long, the city attracts many companies.
