HOW TO GET TO ESTEC
The conference will be held at the Space Research and Technology Centre of the European Space Agency (ESA/ESTEC), located 35 km south-west of Amsterdam. A link to the general ESA pages on how to reach us is here.
To get to/from ESTEC early in the morning and late in the evening we suggest using the public bus.
To reach the Katwijk hotel area, use bus no. 31.
If you intend to make use of the public bus service, you could consider buying a chip card ("OV-chipkaart"), for example at the Leiden train station. The card itself costs 7.50 euro, but the bus fare is then significantly cheaper than buying a ticket on the bus itself. An OV chip card loading/service point has been installed in ESTEC next to the main reception and the gate house.
