Practical Information

Getting to Leiden

To get to Leiden by train, book tickets to Leiden Centraal Station. The Hague, Schiphol and Amsterdam are linked to two high speed train connections: to the south (Brussels and Paris) and to the east (Cologne and Frankfurt). Regular Dutch railways offer connections to Leiden, also at night.

To get to Leiden from Schiphol Amsterdam Airport, just take the train from Schiphol (downstairs) to Leiden Centraal Station. Tickets can be bought at a ticket dispenser in front of the escalators leading down to the tracks (these only take change or cards equipped with a chip) or at the NS booking office in Schiphol Plaza. A one-way 2nd class ticket costs 5,70 euros; 1st class costs 9,70 euros. Direct trains to Leiden run every ten to fifteen minutes from platform 5-6, and the journey takes 15-20 minutes.

Exit on the side facing the city (follow the signs that say “Centrum”). There will be a Starbuck’s just before the exit. Outside the station, buses are to your right and taxis are to your left.


Workshop participants have been booked at the IBIS or the Museum Paviljoen. Both Hotels are within easy walking distance from Leiden CS and the workshop venue.
