"From every part of Central..." Netherlands Transportation Tip by schielen

Netherlands Transportation: 243 reviews and 206 photos


From every part of Central Europe you will most probably use your own car or catch a train to get here.

From many airports in Europe there are sceduled flights to the small airports of Eindhoven, Maastricht, Groningen, the somewhat larger airport of Rotterdam and Amsterdam/Schiphol.
Most people using an airplane to get to The Netherlands will arrive at Schiphol, the international airport of Amsterdam.
From Schiphol there are many ways to travel to your final destination. By road the airport is very accesable located next to the Motorway A4, connecting Amsterdam with The Hague. You can use this road by bus, taxi or rented car.
The other way to travel to and from Schiphol is by train. The railway-station is directly underneath the airport, in the basement you could say.
From this station direct trains run to the South with stops in The Hague, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Brussels and even as far as Paris! To the North the first main station is ofcourse Amsterdam Central Station, but direct trains go further to the East of the country, and some even beyond that into Germany, as far as Berlin! With one change you can get to almost every railwaystation in The Netherlands. Normal trains run from aprox. 5 AM to aprox. 1 AM the next day. In the West of the country there is a nighttrain connecting Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht with a service ones every hour. This nighttrain stops in Schiphol as well.
