Overview

Amsterdam's Centraal Station dates from the year 1889, when it was first used for the transport of goods. It was designed by the architect P.J.H. Cuypers, well known in his time, who also designed the Rijksmuseum. The building's foundation consists of 8687 wooden piles. The original construction has been rebuilt more than once, due to rapidly expanding traffic and rail transport.
