Travelling from Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) to Groningen

If you arrive in the Netherlands at Schiphol, the Amsterdam International airport, the easiest way to travel to Groningen is by train. The underground train station is located near Schiphol Plaza, within several minutes walking distance from the luggage claim areas. The Dutch railway system is run by Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS). You will recognize it by its yellow and blue colors. Just follow the yellow illuminated signs that direct you 'To the trains'.

Train tickets

It is important that you purchase a train ticket to Groningen prior to boarding the train. Passengers travelling without a valid ticket will be fined. You can buy either a first-class ticket (43,40 euro one-way) or a second-class ticket (25,50 euro one-way). There are two ways of purchasing a ticket: at the ticket office at Schiphol Plaza where you can purchase a ticket from a railway officer in person, and from the yellow and blue ticket-vending machines that you will find in the luggage claim hall and by every entrance to the train terminal.

Train schedules

Information on travelling by train can be accessed at the NS website. Trains from Schiphol to Groningen go twice an hour: one providing a direct connection, the other requires a simple change of trains in Zwolle, to the train to Groningen. The journey from Schiphol Airport takes approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes. The trains are quite comfortable and feature free wireless internet at most of them. However, there is no form of refreshment service on the train so be sure to purchase your snack at Schiphol.
