    From Schipol to Assen

    Taking the 8.19 am train to Assen

    My mum and I took the NSL train to Assen from Schipol Aiport. The journey was 2 hours and 13 minute passing by 7 stations before arriving in Assen. Make sure it's written Groningen on the platform signage. One way ticket was 22.80 euro per person.

    The train journey was very smooth and really fun with beautiful views along the way. We saw horses, farm houses, sheep, a river, windmill (though quite far from the track), towns and homes with beautiful gardens.

    During our trip, we took the 8.19 am train and arrived at Assen Train Station at 10.32 am. That was my first time taking a long train ride in another country and the feeling, hard to explain.

    Arriving in Assen

    Railway station Assen

    A good way to arrive in Assen is by train. From, for example, Amsterdam there is a direct connection to Assen so it's easy to reach.
    The centre of Assen is only a five minute walk from the railway station. Close to the railway station there is the bus station, so you can get around very easily.

    Assen, straight along the Northern highway

    One of many wonderful facades in Assen

    Getting to Assen is quite simple as it is situated direct along the highway A28 that runs from Zwolle North to Groningen. Assen has three exits: South, North and centre.

    By donkey, like the one I am riding on here? No just kidding. Go by car, train or bus.
