1.    Travel form Schiphol to the hotel

Most of you will arrive on Sunday 23 October, some will arrive early. Here is some advice on how to travel from Schiphol Airport to railway station Ede/Wageningen.

At Schiphol Airport follow the signs to the trains. Before boarding a train, please make sure you have purchased a ticket in advance. It is not possible to buy a ticket on the train (and without a ticket you will be fined). Buy a one-way ticket second class: Schiphol – Ede/Wageningen.

Train tickets One Way cost 2nd class 13.50€ or 1st class 26.00€.

Buy your ticket before you descend to the train platforms in the railway station hall (either at machines that accept credit cards or at a counter). Trains to Ede-Wageningen leave from platform 1 and 2.

Upon arrival at railway station “Ede-Wageningen” leave the train, exit the platform via the stairs and bottom stairs turn left to exit the station via stairs again. At the top of the stairs continue walking straight ahead for 300 meters and 5 minutes to arrive at conference centre De Reehorst (crossing 2 streets).


On Sundays, from 11.29 hours until 20.59 hours, there are direct trains from Schiphol to Ede/Wageningen at:

-      xx.29

-      xx.59

This is the most convenient way as you do not have to change trains. Better wait a few minutes than taking a train where you have to change trains at Utrecht Central Station.


Arrriving earlier or later you will have to change trains at Utrecht Central Station. These trains leave Schiphol, before 11.29 hours:

-      xx.14 (first 07.14)

-      xx.44 (first 07.44)

After 20.59 hours:

-      xx.14 (first 21.14, latest 23.14)

-      xx.44 (latest 22.44)


Please be aware of pickpockets at Schiphol, especially when buying your train ticket.


Once you have arrived at railway station Ede/Wageningen, turn left after descending the staircase. It is a five minute walk to De Reehorst.
