    From the station you can enter the center of Hengelo directly on foot. There are taxi's and buses for destination farther away.

    The rebuilding of the station was completed in 1951 after the being bombarded several times in World War II.

    From Hengelo there are tracks to Germany via Oldenzaal; to Munster (Germany) via Enschede and to the rest of the Netherlands via Deventer. Furthermore there are local tracks to Apeldoorn via Zutphen, served by Syntus and to Zwolle via Almelo & Nijverdal.

    2010 update: A new service to Bad Bentheim started in december 2010.

    The railroad tracks were laid in the 1850's and after for the textile industry in Twente to transport the coal for the factories. As Hengelo lies low the railroad soon was elevated up to a dike.

    2010 Update: The new tunnels are finished; work on the platform will be finalized later this year.

    Hengelo Train Stations

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Sep 1, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hengelo Train Station dates back to 1865 when the Almelo to Salzbergen line was opened. Hengelo was a railyard where a small temporary station building was constructed and opened in 1866. The station building was transformed into so-called type SS 3rd class by architect K.H. van Brederode and served till 1899.

    In 1898 a new station construction was started and for 2 years a temporary building served as the Hengelo station. The new station design was by architect G.W. van Heukelom. The construction was heavily damaged by the World War II bombardments and served till 1944.

    A new building, similar to the Leiden station was opened in 1951. The roof still is the original one of the 1901 station and is a National Monument.
    In 2010 a major tunnel reconstruction and plaform upgrade were finished.

    Hengelo has a small second station called Hengelo Oost at the line to Oldenzaal serving the Klein- en Groot Driene suburbs.

    A third station to be called "Gezondheidspark" is planned at the line to Delden to serve the Hospital and adjacent health care institutions. Opening is set for mid-November 2012.

  • Taxi's and public transport

    by JW89 Written Dec 17, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for transportation in Hengelo (ov) Netherlands, The best choice would be Taxi AUB. They have clean cars, kind chauffeurs and a normal price compared to the other taxi companies. They absolutely drive 24/7!! (I can tell cause I've used their service a lot of times!) During daytime you can find them at the taxi stand behind the train station, In the evening you will find them at market square. And if they aren't ther you can ring them up on the number: +31742500778, and they will come to get you in max. 15 minutes.
    If you prefer the publuc transport, the best thing to do is go to the website; 9292ov.nl an fill in the adress you have to get to. The site wil determine wich busline you will have to take, and wich bus stop you have to get off. It will even tell you how long you'll have to walk from the bus stop to the adress you have to get to. Although the public transport is cheaper then a taxi ride, it won't drop you off at exact adress you have to go to, so the taxi is recommended!

    P.S. prices; A bus ticket costs about 2 or 3 euros, depending on where you have to go,
    a taxi ride costs from the train station to the district that's furthest away about 20 euro's including tip. (but then you're guaranteed to be brought to the doorstep you have to be!:)

    Enjoy your stay in Hengelo, and especially in the Netherlands.

    Greetings and veel plezier!:)

    Hengelo Railway Station

    by johngayton Written Aug 23, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hengelo's industrial emergence was mainly due to the development of the railways. The town is on the main line linking the central Netherlands to Germany, via Bad Benheim and onwards to Berlin.

    As well as the international trains the town is linked to the rest of the Dutch intercity railway system via Apeldoorn and there also local services to Oldenzaal, Enschede and Nijverdal.

    The station itself is located about 5 minutes walk from the town centre and has all the basic facilites expected of a small town railway station including a cafe, a snack and general shop and left luggage.
