Arriving in Utrecht

Dwarliggers van Schiphol naar Utrecht CS

As a trade centre, Utrecht has always been well connected with the rest of the world. And Utrecht is the most centrally located large town in the Netherlands, which means that within two hours you can be pretty much anywhere in the country. From the East, the E35 and the E30 lead to Utrecht, from the South, the E31. Eindhoven Airport is 90 minutes by train or bus. Schiphol Airport is only half an hour away by train as well as car.

From the German airports Köln/Bonn and Düsseldorf you can take the ICE train a number of times a day to Utrecht. If you book in time, these tickets are quite affordable (€16 - 63). You can exchange money at GWK Travelex in the Central Station (open 08:00 - 21:00, Sat 08:00 - 19:00, Sun 10:00 - 17:00). The inner city of Utrecht is small enough to be tackled on foot.
For longer distances, there are plenty of city buses. Travel within the city using buses and trams is efficient, fast and relatively cheap. We don’t recommend driving in the city centre, especially not near or in Old Town, because almost every street is a one-way and cyclists whoosh past from all directions making it a nerve-racking experience. Fortunately there are parking garages around the edges of the centre.
