Visit to Vught Concentration Camp

Hi there, I will be in Amsterdam for 3 days and would like to visit the concentration camp in Vught. I don't have a car and therefore have to take a train or bus to the Camp. I checked train time table and it is about an hour train ride from Amsterdam to Vught. Could anyone tell me what I should do after getting off the train??? Many thanks. Betsy

Hi there,

See

Use www.9292.nl/en and address Lunettenlaan 600 in Vught. There's a regular 'buurtbus' service.

All the best,

Hi Erik Thank you for the info on the Vught Concentration Camp. I did try the www.9292nl/en and try to find out the bus time table from Amsterdam Central to the Camp. But their calendar is only up to mid August and I want to visit on the 1/10/2013. Can you tell me how to do it please??? Many thanks . Betsy

Hi Betsy,

Don't worry, just pick a similar day of the week in August. Timetables don't change that much here over the months.

Haven't been there myself, must do one day as my paternal grandpa was interned there also as hostage for a year or so around 1944. But luckily he survived...

All the best,
