Route description

By foot

The Comedy Café is only 10-15 minutes walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station.

Exit Central Station from the IJ side. Turn left, so that the Ferry is on your right-hand side. Walk along the water down Ruijterkade until you meet a narrow footbridge on your right. Walk down the footbridge towards the Palace of Justice. At the end of the road you turn left on IJdok. The Comedy Café is on the right-hand side at number 89.

By car

From Noord-Holland:

  • Take the A7 to Westpoort, Amsterdam.
  • Take exit S101 to A10 Amsterdam.
  • Continue on Nieuwe Hemweg.
  • Take S102 to IJdock in Centrum.
  • IJdock is on the left-hand side.
  • When you enter the island there is a parking garage directly to the left (“Parkeergarage IJDock”).


The most convenient parking facility is IJDock Car Park, located just below the Comedy Café.

Important! If you are planning on using this facility make sure you book in advance, using the “Dinner Parking” option. If you choose to pay per hour, the cost rises significantly.
