Travel information

As the hackfest is planned from Tue to Thu, the Friday is left for some sightseeing (space museum, Leiden, Den Haag, Amsterdam)/travellig to Brussels for FOSDEM. Some information for planning travels & stay during the hackfest follows.

By plane

The closest international airport is Amsterdam Schiphol airport (AMS) 30 minutes train/car ride away from the venue. If a flight from/to Brussels is required a train ride from Brussels to Leiden adds 2-3 hours additional travel time.

By train

Closest train station is Leiden Centraal, from there a Bus departs directly to ESA/ESTEC.

By car

As registered visitor at ESA/ESTEC you can bring your car and park it on premise during the day.

Places to stay

Organization of dinner and/or drinks will happen in the nearby city Leiden due to a bigger variety of venues and interesting places. Therefore booking a stay in the nearby city of Leiden is recommended. There are a variety of hotels & hostels in Leiden and the possibility to use AirBnB as well. If local travel by train/bus is preferred vicinity to the train station is advised.

There are nearby (2-3km from ESTEC) hotels in Katwijk and Noordwijk as well.

Travel from Leiden to ESTEC

For traveling from and to the venue bus lines 30/230 (ESA ESTEC) from Platform F at Leiden Centraal can be used. It takes about 30 minutes (payment only possible by card, *no cash*). For the way back 30/230 are running from ESTEC to Leiden Centraal as well.
