10-12 Jul 2017 Amsterdam (Netherlands)
Amsterdam is located in the vicinity of one of Europe’s most important airline hubs: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. All major airlines and many low‐cost airlines connect Amsterdam to more than 250 destinations worldwide. The connection between Schiphol airport and Amsterdam Zuid train station
is just 8 minutes by train. From the train station the VU campus can be reached in 10 minutes by foot or via tram, metro or bus. High speed trains connect Amsterdam directly to major European capitals such as Brussels, Paris, London and Frankfurt. Public transportation (tram/metro/bus) within Amsterdam is cheap and highly frequent. The VU University Amsterdam is located in the South of Amsterdam (right next to the business district) and has a direct connection to the Amsterdam city centre (20 minutes by tram/metro/bus).
The A-10 Amsterdam ring road can be reached from all directions. Follow the A-10 to the Zuid/Amstelveen exit S 108. Turn left at the end of the slip road onto Amstelveenseweg: after about three hundred yards (at the VU University hospital building) turn left again onto De Boelelaan. VU University Amsterdam can be reached via city routes S 108 and S 109.
There is a limited amount of parking space around Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam itself in De Boelelaan, which has parking bays, and also in Karel Lotsylaan. There is paid parking on VU Amsterdam parking lot to the right of the Hospital Outpatient Clinic. There is even more parking space on the east side of Buitenveldertselaan at the junction with Willem van Weldammelaan, within 5 minutes walking distance of VU University Amsterdam. A number of parking places for the handicapped are reserved in front of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Main Building.
