Train, tram and buses
The new ‘Delft Centraal’ train station was opened in 2016. Delft is worth a visit just for the station alone! From the station you can see the towers of the Old Church and walk to the city centre in only a few minutes. It only takes 10 minutes to get from Rotterdam and/or The Hague to Delft by train, 45 minutes from Amsterdam, and around three hours from Groningen and Maastricht.
Tram line 1 and buses stop right outside the front of the station. Bus 40, 69 and 174 will take you to the conference venue ‘Aula TU Delft’. Tram 1 will take you to The Hague in about 30 minutes and to Scheveningen beach in about 45 minutes.
Participants coming from the UK or Scandinavia can take one of the ferries from and to Rotterdam or the Hook of Holland. A train-ride from the Hook of Holland takes about 40 minutes to Delft, one from Rotterdam approximately 13 minutes.
