Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA)
Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA) is the city’s official port for cruise ships. Occasionally for naval vessels arrive here as well. An eye-catching building on the IJ River, PTA welcomes about 200,000 passengers annually and also serves as an impressive event venue.
Passenger Terminal Amsterdam is an ideal location for a stopover in Amsterdam or as the starting point for a European tour or a cruise to the Baltic or Arctic. PTA boasts 600 metres of quay, and Amsterdam is just 25 km (14 nautical miles) from the open sea.
The sight of large cruise ships or naval vessels delicately manoeuvring in or out of Amsterdam’s city centre is a memorable one. Smaller private vessels can also make use of PTA.
