How to reach Amsterdam Science Park
Amsterdam Science Park is easy to reach by public transport. The train
station Science Park, as well as the bus stops, are indicated on the
Amsterdam Science Park
The WR workshop will take place at the Amsterdam Science Park conference halls (indicated by Science Park 125 on the map ) Euler room (Z009).
See for more information Getting to Amsterdam Science Park .
Plan your journey by public transport via this link.
For public transport you can either buy single tickets, or use an
The OV-chipkaart is convenient since it is valid in bus, tram, metro and train.
You can buy an OV-chipkaart at the ticket machines at the train stations, at the service desks of the GVB (=the public transport company, these desks are located inside train stations), and in some tobacco shops, supermarkets and Bruna shops.
You can find all information about fares and the OV-chipkaart on the 9292 website.
Cycling is by far the easiest and fastest way to get around in
There are many places in Amsterdam where you can rent a bicylce:
- at train stations
- at bicycle rental companies (the biggest are: MacBike, Amsterdam Black Bikes and Yellow Bike)
- at cycle shops (there are more than 150 of them)
- at the hotel
Renting a bicycle costs about 8 to 10 euros for a single day. The rate
is lower if you rent it for a couple of days.
- Before you leave the place where you rented the bicycle check that the lights work (back and front). You need them when it is dark outside.
- Before you start riding the bicycle be aware whether you rented one with hand brake or pedal brake. Occasionally a short response time is advantageous. Then it is good to know where the brakes are.
These are the hotels where Nikhef regularly books rooms for their guests.
- Bridge Hotel
- Hotel Parklane
- Hotel Rembrandt
- Eden Amsterdam Hotel
- Eden Lancaster Hotel
- Eden Manor Hotel (= "Hampshire Hotel The Manor")
- Casa 400
Nikhef has negotiated deals with these hotels. If you like Nikhef to
book a hotel for you, please send an email to:
firstname.lastname@example.org. You will have to pay the hotel yourself according to hotel policy.
You can also book a room at booking.com yourself. It has been our experience in the past that it's not much of a difference pricewise.
Most of the hotels are all located along tram line 9, the tram line
closest to Nikhef.
Eden Manor Hotel is closest to Nikhef. Prices vary between 80-150 euro (depending on season and availability).
