Situated at the very heart of the Netherlands, Utrecht is easy to reach by air, rail and road. From Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, trains depart to Utrecht’s Central Station every 10 minutes, and the journey takes about 30 minutes.
Utrecht is also a key hub in the European rail network.
For detailed information on Dutch public transport, time schedules, and to purchase your train ticket in advance, please see the transport hub. It is advisable to try and book tickets online in advance if possible, to avoid the potential for queues at ticket machines or at counters.
If you arrive by air and wish to buy onward travel tickets at Schiphol airport, there are ticket machines and ticket counters in the central arrival hall where tickets can be purchased. Purchasing at counters incurs a small surcharge to the cost of the ticket.
