Local Arrangements in Utrecht
Getting to Utrecht
By car: From the Ring Utrecht follow the signs to centrum into the city center. You will then automatically enter the city via the main roads. It is wise to follow the main roads as long as possible. This is faster than driving through neighborhoods and residential areas. The parking places are indicated near by the center.
By train: The station area is undergoing a ‘facelift’ with the ultimate goal to combine the station and the old city centre. Inconvenience is limited as much as possible and Utrecht remains easily accessible.
Stop trains and intercity trains have one thing in common. In Utrecht all trains stop! No hassle with parking and within walking distance from the city centre. Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport are just 30 minutes by train; Rotterdam and The Hague at 45 minutes. Daily international trains from and to Brussels (2 hours), Cologne (2.5 hours) and Paris (3,5 hours). For more info, consult www.ns.nl or www.nshighspeed.nl.
Getting around Utrecht
By bus or tram: The inner city of Utrecht is best reached by public transport. You simply take the tram, bus, (train) taxi or rent a bicycle at the station. City buses are entering the centre from all directions. From the area of Nieuwegein and IJsselstein, trams run frequently. An extensive network of city buses ensures that every district is easily accessible.
By bike: The easiest way of getting around in Utrecht is by bike. You can rent a bike for €8,- per day at the Tourist information office, the VVV.
