Directions and Transport

From the Airport in Amsterdam (Schiphol), there are regular trains going to Utrecht. Take an Intercity (not a Sprinter as, despite their name, the Sprinter is slow). You can buy train tickets in the station hall near the escalators going down to the tracks. Do not forget to check in your ticket at one of the yellow check-in boxes (and check out in Utrecht).

Directions from Utrecht train station (Utrecht Centraal) to the University Hall.

Like cycling? Although everything is close by in Utrecht, if your hotel or airbnb happens to be a bit further away, ask at the hotel or your host whether they provide you with a bike for the time of your stay. If not, you can easily rent a bike for EUR 7.50 per day here:


Conference attendees are responsible for their own accommodation in Utrecht. Note that Utrecht can get busy so it is recommended to make hotel reservations in time.
