GPE XI – Flight and Logistics

Destination Airport for GPE XI Conference

We strongly recommend you fly into and out of Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam (AMS). There is a direct train connection to Nijmegen (1 hour 30 minutes). We will welcome you at the airport and get you on the right train. From the train station in Nijmegen we recommend you to take a taxi to the hotel. This will take you around 5 minutes. We cannot guarantee transportation to or from any other airport.

NOTE: If there will be others from your University who will be attending they will also need to fill out the flight information. We must have this information in order to make the proper plans. Please forward this link to your colleagues. Thank you.

Information about Traveling from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Nijmegen by Train

We are looking forward to seeing you at GPE XI in just a few days! We have some final logistical information that will help you get from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Nijmegen.

On Sunday, May 13, Gijs Berends, a student from HAN, will be at the airport at designated times to help you catch the train. He will already have purchased your tickets for you.

On Monday, May 14, the bus taking us from the hotel to HAN will leave at 8:15 am! Be sure to be there on time!

MEET GIJS AT THE AIRPORT TO GET YOUR TICKET

Gijs is rather tall and will be wearing a black t-shirt with small white lettering on it that says HAN. You will meet Gijs at the entrance of the railway station located inside the airport. You can spot the station by looking for the red and white tiled structure pictured below.

Based on the flight information we have received, we have set up a few times that you can meet Gijs at the designated time to get your ticket and then catch the train to Nijmegen.

WHAT IF I WANT TO GO TO NIJMEGEN ON SATURDAY OR ARRIVE AFTER THE LAST TIME ABOVE?

If you cannot meet Gijs at one of the designated times above, you will have to purchase your own ticket. Gijs has put together a comprehensive document (PDF file) on how to do that.

Taxi’s are available at the taxi stand outside of the train station. You will need to tell the taxi driver where you are going. The hotel information is:
