Plan your visit


By rail

Every day, NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen) Dutch railways transports visitors into the heart of the city.

The closest station to the conference site (Radboud University) is Nijmegen Heyendaal’ Station which connects to the Nijmegen Centraal Station within 6 minutes.
Nijmegen Centraal Station is less than 2km away from Radboud University, should you prefer to walk.

Using the intercity service, you can easily travel from Amsterdam to Nijmegen in approximately 90 minutes, with a ticket price of €21.10. The official website of NS offers discounted rates of up to 40% for advance bookings, but these rates are non-refundable.

By air

If you plan to travel to Holland by air, it’s probable that your destination will be Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. Although the airport is located approximately 135 km away from Nijmegen, there’s a reliable and speedy train service available. You can easily catch a train from the station located within the airport and expect to arrive in Nijmegen in about 90 minutes. Direct trains run twice an hour, providing a convenient transportation option.

Nijmegen is situated near the German border, making the airports in Weeze and Düsseldorf ideal for traveling long distances. However, it’s important to note that these airports, along with Eindhoven airport, do not have direct connections to Nijmegen. Weeze International Airport is the closest option at a distance of just over 50 kilometers from Nijmegen, while Düsseldorf and Eindhoven airports are about 70 kilometers away.
