    Utrecht's train station

    by leplaya Updated Feb 12, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a huge shopping mall attached to Utrecht's main train station. It is pretty much a generic mall with nothing too extraordinary. The difficult thing about this place is to try to find your way out. There are main exits from the train station. To get to the center of the city, you must go through the mall. Follow the signs above you to Centrum. If you take the exits at the train station you will come out near the city bus stop (away from the city center).

    Pedestrians watch out!

    The main "transportation mean" in Utrecht is without the shadow of a doubt the bicycle, everyone uses it and if you don't you are out!
    PEDESTRIANS WATCH OUT as you have no rights there! Always give the right to pass to bikers first or you'll be run over..

    You can easily get around Utrecht by bus. They leave and stop off at the train station and go to various areas. Make sure you are riding on the right bus though, cause there may be two no.6 buses, for example. You will have had to pay the ticket for nothing. A strippenkart (valid for 10 journeys) can be purchased from train ticket booths.

    International busstops at Utrecht, Jaarbeursplein

    by catnl Written Sep 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the Jaarbeursplein at Utrecht which is next to Central Station one can find several international busses going to several countries in Europe, a cheap way to travel. Cheaper than by train bu a little less comfortable.
    Several travelcompanies leaves from this point at Utrecht every day.
    We went by Eurolines to Hungary Budapest.
    a returnticket costs about 162 euro and a single one costs 107 euro.
    On the way back from Ukraine i booked through Inturtrans at Lviv to Breda Holland, his line has also stops at Utrecht, The Hague and Amsterdam.

    The trains and buses are a breeze in the Nl. I have never been on public transportation in my life other then the school bus. I was zipping all over the country. Nearly everyone speaks English and I was able to navigate very well. I never missed a connection, if I had another would be along soon. The trains and buses are impeccably clean and the people of the Nl are so polite. I would suggest taking the time to look at the schedules, it all makes perfect sense. You can get anywhere in very little time.

    From here you can to every corner in Holland

    Utrecht is located in the centre of holland. That makes that you can go from here to evry corner of The Netherlands. The best way is to by train. Schiphol is only a 43 train ride away. Amsterdam is only 30 minutes and Rotterdam 45. The north like Leeuwarden is 2 hours, and on and and on I can go.
    There are few nice hotels here, will telling you in the accomodation tips ( have to wait for this).
    So Utrecht is a great city to stay, and not only to explore this town, but the rest of holland too.

    see the city, by bike ot by boat

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seeing the town, you can walk, it is a great way to see the town. But You can rent a bike and cycle around, and you can get outside town too. There are some great short trips, like the Laage vuurse route, takes you throug nice small vilages and the woods. Most of the routes are sighposted.
    An other way to see the city is rent water bike, they give you a route with description, and it is a great way to learn about the history. ( and it keeps you fit)
    There some tourboats too, that will take along the canals and there some trips that will take you outside the town.
    The botas can be found on de oude gracht, on the corner, near the central postoffice.
    You can rent bikes, in the train station, or near the trainstation, just ask around.

    Take the train

    by OlafS Updated Mar 19, 2003

    If there's one city easily reached by train, it's Utrecht. This city is in the heart of the country and trains arrive here coming from all directions all of the time. The station is located close to the centre, the Hoog Catarijne shopping centre being the only obstacle you have to pass before the fun begins.

    Bike

    by miedje Updated Feb 21, 2003

    The Netherlands are the country of bikes. It's a small country, so a nice way to get around and a lot people are doing it.
    The same about Utrecht, the city isn't very large, so a nice way to get around is by bike (do as the Dutch do!). It's a nice way to see everything and get where you can't get by bus.
    Check the dangertips in case you take you own bike!

    NS-train to Utrecht

    by miedje Written Feb 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to get to Utrecht is by train. the station o Utrecht is the most important and most central station of the Netherlands. From there you can get everywhere and from everywhere back to Utrecht. The sad thing is that the trains of the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch Railways) are very often delayed.... but nothing to do about it. From and to Amsterdam is only half an hour! Nice to visit it for a day (or in the other direction may be more likely, visit Utrecht from the bigger city of Amsterdam).

    hOW VERY UNFORTUNATE that I can only click ONE period and have to say to OR around.......
    But of course you can come by car!
    Did you choose for the train then you can rent a bike at the Central Station.
    By bike you follow the same roadsign as for the WALK and you will see the most beautiful parts of Utrecht.

    BIKE: 5,20 euros per day (do have an ID and 60 euros deposit)

    BE DUTCH, FEEL DUTCH, RENT-A-BIKE....

    Utrecht is a medium-sized city with about 250.000 inhabitants, of which more than 50.000 are students. Utrecht is the third largest Dutch city. Its place in the heart of the Netherlands makes it the most central city, a junction for both public and private transport. From Utrecht Central Station around 1600 national and international trains depart in six different directions. The distance to all major cities in the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, etc.) is relatively short: 30 to 45 minutes by train. Even the more remote parts of the country can be reached easily.
