By train (of course). Amsterdam is not nearest of course. Groningen will be closer or Eelde, but good deals are best found to Amsterdam.

You can see train schedules from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Assen on www.oebb.at (english page) which is a great website for all trains in Europe.

Hi there.

There are several direct trains to Assen from Amsterdam Schiphol airport, every 21 minutes past the whole hour, so 10.21, 11.21, 12.21 etc. It takes 2hrs 15 mins and look out to be seated in the right part of the train, as halfway in Amersfoort, they split up the train and will announce the numbers corresponding above the cabin doors that will be in 1 part to Groningen and the numbers that will do Leeuwarden. You need to be seated in the ones that do Groningen.

One way Schiphol Assen is EUR 25,10 and day return is EUR 37.20

If going to TT, there are shuttlebusses to the track, but they will be crowded......so take enough time for your transportation.

See you there....!

Regards

Hi there.

Amsterdam airport's official name is indeed Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Assen has a few hotels, but depending on when you want to go there, if you go for the TT this weekend, forget about getting a hotel there, they will probably all have a full house this weekend. You might succeed in the environment, but I doubt you will find a decent hotel with availability within 30 kms...

Van der Valk Assen, which is in the south western part of Assen.

Furthermore Hotel de Jonge http://www.hoteldejonge.nl/

There are loads of small hotels in the neighbourhood, a few of them can be found here: www.ertussenuit.com/provincies/HO5-1.htm

You will however need additional transportation such as bus or sometimes even a bike for the more remote ones......

Regards
