Leiden Central Station (Leiden Centraal) is easily accessible by train from Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Den Haag, with connections to all major European cities. The train station is within a 15 minute walk of all the conference venues and hotels.
The closest airport is Schiphol International in Amsterdam. From Schiphol, you have following options:
Trains run regularly from Schiphol Airport Train Station (directly under the airport) to Leiden Central Station. The journey takes around 20 minutes and costs around 6 euros.
NS (Dutch Railways) tickets can be purchased from the yellow ticket machines located near the platforms at Schiphol Plaza. Tickets can also be purchased from the ticket and service desks close to the red and white-checked cube at Schiphol Plaza. To book in advance, visit the NS website.
Bus 365 to Leiden Central Station arrives and departs Schiphol Plaza directly in front of the airport's Arrival and Departure Halls. The journey takes 50 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes, and costs 5-7 euros.
A taxi from Schiphol International Airport to Leiden will cost 70-80 euros with a journey time of around 20 minutes.
We recommend the City Hotel Nieuw Minerva or the Hotel de Doelen. Both are situated in the centre of the old town, within ten minutes' walk of both conference venues, and 15 minutes' walk or six minutes by car from the central train station.
