How to get to Groningen?

Close to Groningen there are three airports that you could consider:

  1. Airport Bremen in Germany. From Bremen you can take the Flixbus to get to Groningen, this service runs 4-5 times daily. See for tickets and information:
  2. Schiphol Amsterdam airport. The easiest way to travel to Groningen from Schiphol airport is to take the train. The (underground) train station is located near Schiphol Plaza, within several minutes walking distance from the luggage claim. The Dutch railway system is run by Nederlandse Spoorwegen and known as NS. You will recognize it by its yellow and blue colours. Look out for the yellow illuminated signs that direct you ‘To the trains’. There is a direct hourly train service to Groningen from Schiphol airport. Additional connections every hour involve just one change of trains. Make sure that you board one of the carriages marked with the destination Groningen (the other part of the train travels to Leeuwarden). The journey from Amsterdam or Schiphol airport to Groningen takes a little over 2 hours. See for more information on public transport
  3. Groningen airport Eelde. Eelde is situated around 15 kilometers from Groningen and is easy to reach by public transport. The Qbuzz number 2 bus travels from Groningen Central Station to Groningen Airport Eelde twice an hour and once an hour on Sundays. From Assen (NS bus station) the number 50 bus travels to De Punt, where you need to change to number 2. See for more information on public transport
