By Train from Schiphol Airport

When you arrive at Schiphol Airport, at the airport lobby, you will see escalators going down which lead to the train gates. Make sure you buy your tickets before boarding the train!

Parking in Utrecht

Parking in the city center comes at a cost of €5.35 per hour. This is fine for short stay but beware of limited parking availability especially during the festive season.

It makes more sense to park at the P+R outside of the city, especially for long stay. The price for parking at P+R Westraven is just €5,00 per 24 hours and that includes your tram ticket to the center.

The address for P+R Westraven is Griffioenlaan 1, 3526 LA Utrecht.
