architecture – Where is this building in Amsterdam with a façade looking like a bookshelf?

Well, got a few hits, but nothing to solve the problem.

However, Google Image Search using your photo as the search parameter was more helpful.

One of the many hits was to a blog called The Sticky Egg, specifically the post from November 13, 2011 called “Feeling Bookish”, which includes an address:

De Batavier in Lootstraat [sic], Amsterdam.

Then hunting around Google Street View, it seems to be 37 Lootsstraat.

37 Lootsstraat

How can I go from Amsterdam to Paris?

This answer is made from various comments on the question (often found in any request to get to a cheap place).

The distance from Amsterdam to Paris is approximately 500 km, on the main roads. But since you'll want a good bike route, you can add a few miles, so let's assume it's about 600 km, about 375 miles.
For those who are experienced cyclists and know how much they can do in a day, it will be easy to determine how long it will take. It is relatively flat, less and less when you go further south.
Google Maps gives a height indication of 140 meters, 460 feet.
It will drop almost to the level at times, but it is not close to the heights you will have to do on high hills or mountains.
One thing you may have noticed is that there will be winds, which often blow from the south and can be strong at any time of the year.

For those with less experience, by taking distances of 60 km per day, it will take 10 days to get to Paris, and that is a distance that almost everyone with cycling experience can handle, new real cyclists may have to go further. in the distances. On a tight bike with the wind behind, 100km days are very possible.
If you cycle outside of the main holiday season, you don't have to make reservations and you can adjust your daily distances to how you feel. And you will be close to the railway lines where you can take the train with your bike if it turns out you don't like the experience.

Now about the costs. If you own a bike located in the Netherlands, it will only cost you the nights and food that you would generally spend money on during the holidays.
If you don't have a bike like that, but have a few weeks (and / or local friends) to find a second-hand bike, based on your needs, you can often find one for relatively little money. (I have seen samples of around € 25 for bikes that are good enough to undertake such a journey, but you will need time to find such a deal, don't expect to find a good cheap bike in a day or two.)
Renting a bicycle is also an option if you intend to return to Amsterdam, it is possible to return by train, without reservation, but you will have to change trains several times. (I don't think fast trains carry many bicycles, if there are any.)
As far as I know, there are still no "one-way rentals" for this distance. There are organized tours that will transport you (and your bike) back to the start, but they will be more expensive and less free to select your own route. Some of those tours will provide you with a bike to use, it may not be the best bike you have ever used, but it may be attractive to some people.

There are many long-distance bike routes, this site has many of those across Europe, as well as links to national organizations that will have even more routes. The search for & # 39; long-distance bike routes & # 39; You will find many more (as well as the organized hotel and the bike tours).

Hiking / walking.
There are many long-distance routes, often in a combination of several, that will cover from Amsterdam to Paris.
It's still about 500/600 km, 310 to 375 miles, or much more than less direct but more enjoyable trails to hike. This is quite a lot for most people in a short period of time. But then again, if you are experienced, you will know your daily distance and the elevation level will remain the same as for cyclists, 140 meters or approximately 460 feet.
Get a good guide to the long-distance routes you want to use, so you can find information on places to sleep near your route. (Hotel search sites will work, but you may need to find places that aren't on those sites, in case you're in an area where hotels are scarce.)

As with long-distance bike routes, there are websites for long-distance walking routes. Wikipedia has a few for international and national long distance in the target area (and beyond). Again, a search, such as long-distance walking and a country or route, will give you more information. The long-distance walking routes on those Wikipedia pages often have brochures for the route and additional information. But more and more information is found online as well or instead.

General information.
Unlike the bus (or any public transport) that travels by bike or on your own feet, it allows you to see the country you are traveling in, visit the places where you spend the night, maybe even make a stop or two in tourist spots, if you are willing to leave your (bicycle and) equipment unattended or stay close enough to walk or ride a bicycle without equipment.

Camping will work for both biking and walking, but it will increase the load you need to carry and the preparations and (air) luggage you need to carry. Hotels, hostels, B & B & # 39; s, airbnb and even hot showers (places for people on bicycles) and the like for people who walk, will be easier, since most of the time you just need your sleeping bag.
Many people will combine walking the best parts of the routes with public transportation for the rest, which will probably be much more expensive than the cheapest long-distance routes for the entire distance from Amsterdam / Paris.

While this is a cheap way to travel, people often spend more on places to stay and food, and it will certainly take much longer, several days, or even several weeks to walk and not go extreme distances each day. Actually, it is not a way to get to places, but a way to pass time and get somewhere almost as an afterthought.

public transport: when are Eurostar direct trains from Amsterdam to London expected to start?

This article from the Rail Journal says:

The Secretary of State of the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security, Ms. Ankie Broekers-Knol, informed the parliament of the country on September 25 that an agreement had been reached between the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Great Britain on customs arrangements and security for Eurostar services in Amsterdam – London. .

Direct services will begin operating between Central Amsterdam and London St Pancras on December 15, when the 2020 calendar enters into force.

However, there has been no Eurostar press release on the subject, and the Eurostar website continues to show only trips with a change in Brussels.

I am afraid that the deadline for the 2020 time change may have been missed, so this would probably delay things for the next time change, probably the summer service that should take effect in June. Eurostar only shows trips until May 13, so it is too early to secure it.

To update

The shows direct trains on some dates (from March 31 to May 16, with some of the trains that do not work on Saturdays and / or Sundays), but does not allow you to book them.

The Oui.Sncf site shows direct trains, but says "Train non ouvert", which means that the train cannot be booked yet (but you can subscribe to an alert to receive a notification when they are available, although I am not 100% sure that works in this specific case).

I guess the trains are planned to work as direct trains, but they are not quite sure if they can really work as such, depending on the completion of the work in Amsterdam CS and / or Rotterdam CS, and they will not. Allow these trains to be booked until they are sure they will work as planned.

Update 2

Interestingly, this other Rail Journal article, published later than the first, states

NETHERLANDS Railways (NS) has announced that the frequency of London-Amsterdam Eurostar services will increase from three per day currently to four per day in 2020 and five per day in 2021.

However, the gradual expansion of the service will only occur if a four-country treaty is signed, involving Great Britain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, in relation to border controls.


NS says it expects direct services Amsterdam – Rotterdam – London to begin this spring.

(emphasis mine)

I am not sure if the reports are accurate and if the problem is that the agreement has been "agreed" but not really signed, or if only the completion of the work required in Amsterdam CS and Rotterdam CS is pending. Given the tweet linked below, probably only the last one.
