Getting Around

Most popular Dutch transport is of course the bike! Cycling in 's-Hertogenbosch is convenient and fun, and will allow you to easily reach hotels a bit further away from the venue.

Many hotels have a set of rental bikes available for guests.

By Foot

The venue, the railway station and the city center are well within walking distance (1.5 km) from each other.

Local buses normally run every 30 minutes. The bus station is in front of the railway station.
