Directions to Tilburg
From the airport by train to Tilburg
The following travel directions will help you travel from either Schiphol or Eindhoven airport to Tilburg. Please note that there are two train stations in Tilburg: Tilburg Central and Tilburg University. The city center and most hotels are located close to Tilburg Central station, but the University campus and conference activities are mostly easily reached via Tilburg University station. Note that not all trains stop at the Tilburg University station.
Please bear in mind that the train tickets have an
electronic chip which you must activate by scanning in and out (called
“checking in” and “checking out”) at the stations where you depart and arrive,
much like how an oyster card works in London. This can be purchased at the
ticket counter! It is also possible to buy your train ticket online. If you
prefer to do so, please visit www.ns.nl/en
and choose the ticket that you will need. If you purchase your ticket online
you do not need to scan in and out of the stations.
