About Amsterdam Amstel Station
Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands officially opened the Amstel Station on October 15th 1939, shortly before the German occupation. On August 16th 2004, the Ministry of Education, Arts and Sciences made the station building a national monument.
Architecturally, it’s a building in the functionalist style. Inside, you’ll find multiple original artworks. There are three murals to admire, made by Peter Alma. He designed two of the paintings specifically for the Amstel Station. The third one was transported from the Marnixbad in 2003.
Another Dutch artist, Theo van Reijn, sculpted two statues for Amstel Station. The first statue, named ‘Terugblik’ (retrospect), is made of sandstone. It forms a combined artwork together with Peter Alma’s mural. The second piece called ‘Toekomst der Spoorwegen’ (The future of the railways) is the counterpart of Terugblik. You’ll find this bronze piece above the eastern exit of the station.
On the whole, the Amsterdam Amstel train station is definitely worth a visit!

When you book a taxi with us, you will get a fixed price in advance. The exact cost depends on several things.
The distance of the ride
Of course, you will pay less for a shorter ride. However, our rate per kilometre decreases as the total distance increases. That is unique because most drivers use their taximeter, which charges a fixed amount for each kilometre. As a result, you are off cheaper with Staxi than with other taxi companies.
The type of vehicle
A ride in a regular taxi is cheaper than a ride in a taxi van. When you pre-book your taxi with us, the difference in costs between a minivan and sedan is smaller than when you flag down a cab on the street or get in at a taxi rank. In that case, the driver will charge the meter rate, which is more expensive than our fixed rates.
Supply and demand
Just like a plane ticket or a night in a hotel, the fare for the same trip can fluctuate, depending on supply and demand. For example: in extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow, the need for taxi transport increases rapidly, which makes the price rise. The same journey can also be a lot cheaper, for instance, travelling at a quiet time.
As such, Staxi works with peak and off-peak hours. Our software automatically adjusts the fares based on supply and demand. In quiet moments, you will travel even cheaper with Staxi.

Tip: When you book a taxi with the Staxi App, you can see precisely where the driver is and what time he or she will arrive.
At Staxi you can pay for your taxi in any way you like. Because we work with fixed prices, it is possible to pay in advance via your trusted payment environment such as iDeal, Sofort or PayPal.
Would you rather pay on-site with the driver? That’s possible too! Our drivers accept cash as well as debit and credit card payments. Without any extra costs, of course!
