Those in Europe can travel to Eindhoven Airport, which takes approximately 1 hour by bus and train to Tilburg Central Station.

General travel information is available via Google Maps or, whereas national (NS) and international train schedules provide tickets and information about the Netherlands’ most commonly used public transit service.

NOTE: All services are available in English and Dutch, and the international webpage can be used to book and pay for train travel to most major European Cities in Belgium (Brussels in ~2 hours), Germany (Cologne in ~3 hours), and France (Paris is ~4 hours), and England (London is ~5 hours).

Once you have arrived in Tilburg, the easiest way to commute within the city is by walking, cycling, train, and bus (check for the bus and train and for the train schedule).

Bikes are available at all major train stations in the Netherlands as part of the OV.fiets program to make public transit more accessible and attractive.

Those attending the pre-conference event and the opening reception (or “borrel” as it is known in Dutch) will attend these at Tilburg University on June 5th, 2024. The small and cozy campus is located west of the city and directly next to a forest called the “Wandelbos.” Tilburg University has its own train station. However, it is easily accessible with a 12-minute bike ride, a 20-minute bus (buslines 2/3/4) ride, a 5-minute train ride to Tilburg University Station (approximately a 10-minute walk to the campus), and one stop from Tilburg Central Station.

Those joining us for the main conference June 6th – 7th, 2024, at the LocHal, will have no difficulty finding the location as it is directly behind Tilburg Central Station and within walking distance from the City Centre.
