Whether you’re in Amsterdam for a quick layover or you’re in town for a proper holiday, carrying your luggage to your next sightseeing or shopping adventure is a drag. Thankfully, there are a number of options to store your luggage in Amsterdam. We’ve got some suggestions for you right here.
The Dutch Railway offers the opportunity to store your bags and suitcases at the Amsterdam Central train station. You pay your fee upfront for the first 24 hours, after that you pay for the extra hours you used the locker. There are two types of lockers; a small one that’s (85cm x 45cm x 35) and a big locker that’s 85cm x 60cm x 35cm. The luggage storage is opened daily from 5am to 1am.
Address: Stationsplein 1
Another convenient option for luggage storage in Amsterdam is the company Lockerpoint. They have a storage facility in the city center, close to Central Station, the shopping district and a lot of attractions as well as one near Museumplein (at the Q-park parking garage) covering the south side of the city.
You’re able to pre-book a big locker (78cm x 56cm x 36cm) before your arrival and small lockers can be booked when you’re at the location. Of course you can always walk in to see if there’s a big locker available, but pre-booking is advised. Go to the website of Lockerpoint to check the current opening times.

This service also has two locations to storage your luggage in the city. One near Central Station again, next to the big church (St. Nicholas church) across the Central Station and you can also drop of your bags in the Pijp. This is an area with a lot of bars and restaurants, next to a metro stop and close to Museum square as well, so it might be convenient to leave your bags somewhere secure. The Drop & Go staff are happy to tell you all about the sights and attractions in the area.
You don’t need to make a reservation for a locker, so you can just decide last minute you want to store your bags or suitcases. The lockers have different sizes, so you can store bags in the size of a laptop bag to larger suitcases and everything in between.
