Travel & getting around
Getting to The Netherlands might be easier than you think. Flying to The Netherlands only takes:
London: 75 minutes
Berlin: 80 minutes
Barcelona: 2 hours
Oslo: 2 hours
Lisbon: 3 hours
Istanbul: 4 hours
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is the most convenient airport to fly to. Every 15 minutes a non-stop train departs for Utrecht Central Station, which takes approximately 30 minutes.
Eindhoven and Rotterdam The Hague Airport are slightly further away from Utrecht but both have intercity train connections to Utrecht. The train from Rotterdam takes about 40 minutes; from Eindhoven it takes about 50 minutes.
The easiest way to get around Utrecht and the festival is definitely by bike. With that, you also get the full local experience. :)
There are multiple options for bike rental in the city:
- Willemstraatbike (Willemstraat 22);
- Laag Catharijne (Catharijnesingel 28, located across the street from TivoliVredenburg);
- Fietsen Utrecht (De Nobelstraat 293)
