Amsterdam Public Transport just announced there will be extra metro trains on Saturday and Sunday night to and from the Amsterdam ArenA. There will be no special 'late' trains driving, so make sure you'll be at the station at 0:00 hrs latest to catch your last train.

If you decide to visit the after party at 3&20 on Saturday night, you'll have to catch a night bus or a taxi.

How is it normally getting onto the Metro after an event or match at Amsterdam ArenA? I'm expecting long queues?

Was over for a show on the i&e tour at Ziggo and had no problem getting NS train back after to Zaandam. Am staying at same hotel again this time for the show on Sunday, so looks like its going to be metro to either Centraal or Sloterdijk and transfer onto the NS train from there.

I just checked the website of the Dutch railways (www.ns.nl). Best you can do is take a metro to Amsterdam Centraal and take a train from there. From ArenA to Central station is just under 20 minutes. But you can change at Sloterdijk too, the metro journey is about 30 minutes then, but the station is smaller so it's easier to change to train.

There are NO direct trains from ArenA to Zaandam.

The queues will be longer than normal, but most people have to get trains to the rest of Holland, the metro will be ok I think. 

Amsterdam Public Transport (GVB) have told me that they will have extra metro trains because of the lack of trains going to Amsterdam Central Station. 

There will be 6 trains leaving Amsterdam Centraal going to Zaandam on Sunday after 23:30, the latest will leave at 0:37 so that will be no problem getting them. Check out the NS website for time and track info (or send me a PM)

Thanks for checking multiple sources! Pity there won't be a separate front of stage section for early arrivers, but then also no stress about getting in such section...

Well, it was quite relaxed in London, so hope it will be the same without pit in Amsterdam. Red zone would have been nice, but I'm happy with 3 U2 shows with 'just' regular GA tickets. Will find a good spot anyway. Enjoy the Red Zone and thanks for providing the helpful information!

Is there no way at all of walking from central Amsterdam (we are staying at the Student Hotel West) to the Arena? It's only 6.9 kilometres?

London GA was the best GA I have been to so far - well organised and not too crowded, Dublin and Rome were both much more crowded. Not sure what Amsterdam will be like. Doing GA one night and RZ the other in Amsterdam.

I'm planning a bit of sightseeing (been already in Amsterdam in the past) 

Royal palace and Heineken experience Are they worth time and money? Also... Any suggestion for a good place to eat? Thank you again
