Leiden is a relatively small city in the west of The Netherlands, between the capital Amsterdam and The Hague, the Dutch seat of Government. For international visitors, it is easily reached by air, railway and road.
Arrival by plane
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is the main international airport of the Netherlands, and a major air hub in Europe. To and from Leiden, the train is the easiest way of travelling to the airport, which takes approximately 15 minutes. Trains leave in both directions every fifteen minutes between 6 am and midnight, and about every hour at night. You can easily plan your train journey by checking the schedule online.
Arrival by train
Leiden can be reached on international trains via major cities in its proximity such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. These cities are services by two high speed train connections: to the south to Brussels and Paris (also connecting to London) and to the East to Koln and Frankfurt, as well as regular speed international train connections to most other major cities in Europe. You can find train schedules online.
Arrival by car
Leiden is located between the A4 and A44 motorways. Although the small city centre is a pedestrian-only area, visitors will find parking facilities just outside this are, and all venues will be within walking distance.
For more information, see the website of Leiden's Tourist Information.
Hotels are easy to find in Leiden. We listed some hotels and B&B's that are convenient to the conference venue. 'Walking time' indicates the time it takes to walk from the hotel to the main conference venue (the Lipsius building: Cleveringsplaats 1).
