From the airport

From the airport to the cities

Whether you are flying to the Netherlands for holiday or business, there are many ways to continue your travels from the airport. We have compiled a list of public transport possibilities from all airports.

The Dutch airports

 

Our page “In the City” offers more information on public transport in the cities.

Schiphol

Our biggest airport is Schiphol. The train station is located right underneath Schiphol, while the bus station is situated right next to the airport.

Train

Trains offer enough room to place your luggage, and you can leave your luggage trolley in marked areas at the station. This ensures a quick and easy continuation of your journey from the arrivals hall. This obviously works well for your return journey as well, as the luggage carts can be found at the same spot to be taken from the train station to the departures hall.
