Mini-Workshop on Symplectic Geometry, Utrecht University, March 15, 2019


An invaluable source for travel information within the Netherlands is the route planner.

From Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Utrecht Centraal or Amsterdam

It is most convenient to take the train with NS (the Dutch Railways). You need either a single-use chipkaart or an OV-chipkaart. Both are available from the yellow ticket machines, which are located near the platforms at Schiphol Plaza. Tickets are also available from the ticket- and service desks, which are situated close to the red/ white-checked cube at Schiphol Plaza.

You need to check in and out with your chipkaart at the train station before and after your journey.

Take the bus 27 or 28 (direction de Uithof P + R) to Botanische Tuinen (=botanical garden) or the bus 12 (direction Uithof UMC AZU) to Padualaan.
