Located at the core of the city the Amsterdam Centraal Train Station is the nexus of regional and long distance rail services. It is directly linked to the Schiphol Airport with regular services and is the end of a High Speed Rail Corridor from Paris (Thalys). Even if the station is an historical landmark opened in 1889, it has remained in operation and undertook several renovations to maintain its connectivity within the local and regional transport system.
