    Old Train Station in Naaldwijk

    It was possible to go by train and end up in Naaldwijk. The proof of this can still be found near the Center of Naaldwijk. As you can see on the picture there really was a trainstation..

    Infact the station still stands only it's now a meeting center for foreign people who live here.

    It depends how you arrive here in the Netherlands but when you dont have a car, bike or somethings else you can go with a cap. Its not cheap, specially in the weekends, you have to pay double in the eveninghours.

    Bus station

    busstation in Naaldwijk

    This place is near the centre of Naaldwijk. This is where you can wait for the right bus to come. You can take a bus to Hoek van Holland and take a train to Rotterdam or go straight away with the bus to Rotterdam, Den Haag or where ever you wanna go. Most busses come every 30 minutes or once in an hour.
