Submission of paper: September 15, 2003
Utrecht is the fourth largest city of the Netherlands, with a very attractive historic centre and a large and lively student population. It is located at the heart of the Netherlands, easily reachable from all directions. Utrecht Central Station is the largest railway junction of the Netherlands; a train journey from Schiphol Airport takes 45 minutes (four to six connections each hour, including one change at Duivendrecht), and from Utrecht to Amsterdam takes just 30 minutes, with at least six direct connections each hour.
From Schiphol Airport: Take one of the trains calling at Duivendrecht: five trains per hour, usually departing from platform 2, directions Hilversum, Lelystad Centrum, Amersfoort/Groningen or Amersfoort/Enschede. (Do not take a train to Amsterdam Central, but if by mistake you still do, simply change at Amsterdam Central for Utrecht; you will have lost only 20-30 minutes.) At Duivendrecht change for Utrecht: 6 trains per hour, up the escalator to platform 8. Do not take the .33 train; it will take you to Rotterdam instead of Utrecht.
By train from Belgium or Germany: When travelling from Belgium (Brussels-Antwerp): change for Utrecht at Rotterdam Central. When travelling from Germany (Koeln-Oberhausen-Arnhem): this train directly takes you to Utrecht Central. Those travelling from Germany (Osnabrueck-Hengelo) should change for Utrecht at Amersfoort.
From Utrecht Central Station:
