Flying into Schiphol airport
Most international visitors arrive at Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam). First, you pass through Immigration. Before collecting your luggage, it is advisable to exchange any foreign currency into Euros at one of the banks (grenswisselkantoren). Moreover, ATMs at readily available throughout the airport and in Wageningen (and elsewhere in the Netherlands) and most ATMs and shops accept international cards (both debit and credit).
In order to travel with the train and bus, we strongly advise you to buy an ‘OV-chipkaart’ at Schiphol service points. With this OV-chipkaart you can travel on all public transportation in the Netherlands. Traveling by public transportation is the cheapest and most efficient way of traveling to the conference venue.
