    There is a direct connection by ferry from Amsterdam to the castle. You can find this connection on the castles website or at http://www.amsterdamboatexcursion.com
    The tour takes you out on the former Zuiderzee, the large sea-inlet that merchantships had to enter to be able to reach Amsterdam in the past centuries. With a stop at the fortress island Pampus (also part of the fortress stretch, protected by Unesco), we bring you to the jetty on the castles own premises. After your visit (2,5 hours) the ferry brings you back to Amsterdam.
