…continued from “Concert in Oosterkerk, Amsterdam”
I am sure Amsterdammers know the back streets of Amsterdam by bicycle. I am sure they will figure out how to bypass and circumvent the roads that are blocked for cars and buses on Sunday 19th September 2010.
Ironically, a marathon as large as the annual “Dam to Dam” can cause the central part of Amsterdam to come to a standstill. The first race begins at 8 am from the Amsterdam Centraal station and ends in Zaandam. The last run leaves Amsterdam just before 3 pm. [See map of the Dam tot Damloop race.]
Walking is possible.
Cycling is possible.
Even taking a boat on the canals is possible.
Just don’t drive to Amsterdam in your car on Sunday 19th September 2010.
For out-of-towners, you can take the train to Amsterdam Centraal and get a metro to Muiderport station and then walk to Oosterkerk for the free piano guitar duo concert at noon.
From the east end of the central station, you can take tram 26 (it goes in a loop) and get off at the third stop: Rietlandpark and then walk to Funen Park 125 for the piano and French horn concert at 15:00 at Funen Concerts.
