The station works very well and we passed through it without a problem. It's pleasant enough, but not a special site as it has no special characteristics.

Public transportation is great (but a little pricey) in the Netherlands. Direct lines to Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, Groningen, Utrecht and several other big cities in the Netherlands. There are several small shops at the station as well for food, books, groceries etc.
