Getting to Lelystad

by shirley2k Online Now Mar 7, 2008 at 9:57 AM

From Schipol by train. We need to get to Lelystad. How difficult is it to find the right train and will we have to change trains at Central Station? We are in our seventies( young yet) and each have a big 50lb suitcase to drag along. Is there an easier way?
Thanks for your help.

    There are direct "slow" trains (stoptrein) in the direction of Lelystad Centrum, that stop at Almere Haven as well.

    At Almere the Citybus # 1 (stadsbus) of the Connexxion company will bring you to wherever you have togo to in Almere.

    Have a look at our Virtual Tourist Schiphol page, etc.

    Hi,

    You can check train-info at www.ns.nl

    All public transport in the Netherlands from door-to-door can be found here:
    http://www.9292ov.nl/. A helpful tip on how to use this site is here: "Schedules public transport train/bus/metro/tram" - Netherlands Transportation Tip by ATLC

    The trains are easy to find at the airport, kinda self-explanatory...

    BTW, do you need to go to Lelystad or Almere-Haven?

    Enjoy your stay,
    Dennis

    Thank You. I will look at those sites. We are going to the Mercure Hotel. I was worried we would have to change trains.

    Forget about what I said about Almere (That's another town).

    It's clear to me now you want to go to the Lelystad Mercure; see my tip at: Lelystad Hotel Tips by pieter_jan_v

    It seems it has been taken over by the Apollo Hotel chain.


    To get to Lelystad Haven take the local bus F; see my transportation tips at: Lelystad Transportation Tips by pieter_jan_v


    You could walk from the Lelystad Train station to the Hotel:
    Going down from the platform
    Crossing a major road
    Crossing the City Hall square
    Squeezing through the city center shopping streets

    It will be a challenge with that suitcase!
