- Travel & Accomodation
Travel from airports to Delft
From Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) you can best take the train to Delft station via Leiden and the Hague HS station (not CS!), where you need to transfer. The train takes about 45 minutes, depending on the connection. A one way ticket, which can be purchased on Schiphol Plaza, costs about 9 euros. The closest station to the faculty of Aerospace Engineering is Delft Zuid (South) station.
From to Rotterdam - the Hague Airport (RTM), which is situated about 10 kilometres from Delft, you can use the regular bus connection with Rotterdam Central Station (nr. 33) and get a bus or train from there or get off at bus stop "de Lugt" and transfer to bus 40. This bus stops the faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
If you would prefer to take a taxi: the taxi rank is located outside the arrivals area.
