Enschede is easy to travel by car over the A1 and A35 highways. Enschede has rebuild its center and the former West-East main road (the Boulevard) is transformed into the Van Heekplein with a huge 2-level underground parking garage (Boulevard 1945) with 1700 places; open 24 hours. Several rotondes (= roundabouts) are constructed and you have to give way to bicycles too when entering AND leaving the circle! Use the parking garages and beware that on the German holidays the city is flooded by Germans.
Next to the Van Heekplein parking look for the Irene Parking or Zuidmolen parking.
Getting by train to Enschede is easy. There are direct trains from Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague.

When there are FC Twente foorball matches, big events at Go Planet or other organised events, traffic jams build up and a waiting time of one hour is not uncommon.
To inform the public a website is created to inform visitors about the best way to come and go to the events.
To whom it may concern,
Here is a group of about 35 persons, will stay in Enschede from early October to middle of December.
We need a bus everyday, between the De Burink's Hof (Haaksbergerweg 37, 7481 RR Buurse)and the Nationale Reisopera. They are all Chinese actors and actresses, invited by the Nationale Reisopera, having rehearsal in the Nationale Reisopera.
And sometimes we need a car to pick up members from the airport in Amsterdam.
Could you please let us know the possiblity and the price?
Thank you very much for your kind help.
